My mother had breast cancer 24 years ago when she was only 30 years old. She never told me or my siblings about it until we were young adults. She kept all the pain to herself because we were very young children. Just the other day we were talking about it and she said that she never felt well after the chemo (she had chemotherapy for 3 years). She started having fobias about everyday things like driving, talking on the phone, working. She never told us about this until the other day, like I said. I noticed that she is very fragile and needs support. It's very difficult seeing your mother so weak, especially because she's tried to hide all of this pain to not affect us, her children. I want to help her, what can I do?
