My sister had a masectomy in June and started chemotherapy two weeks ago. We have a very large family and everyone is trying to be very supportive and help her out as much as we can. We are having more trouble week by week as she is getting very negative. I know that we can't truly understand what she is going through and I also know that she is in pain with the chemo treatments. But it seems that no matter what any of us say, it rubs her the wrong way. It's gotten to the point where some of my sisters don't want to even call her anymore. What can I do to help her when she pushes us all away? How can I help her find a ray of light, when all she sees is darkness?
