Hi everyone-its been awhile since I have been in here but its time I need some help or ideas with a problem I have. My mom is dying of heart diesease and my sisters and me have been taking turns caring for her along with hospice. Problem is my health is still not what it should be because of having breast cancer with chemo just two years ago. I work, go to school and a single mom of three-they have no job, kids are grown. They think I am cured so I don't need to see doctors no more, go for pain injections,I have no side affects from chemo-I am healthy and should be able to do what they do. I can't anymore, its driving me crazy with guilt. Why can't people understand that cancer changes your life forever and just because I look fine doesn't mean i am fine. They don't have a clue to what my life is like trying to fight cancer and raise my children. Any ideas, besides telling them to leave me alone. I want to take my turn with my mom but its getting to much for me and my mental state. In the past everyone here has always been a great help so please e-mail me if if would firstname.lastname@example.org or thru here.
