My mum has recently been diagnosed with brain cancer; which we have been told is terminal- she is only in her early 40s and I am just 20. The scan showed she has several tumors on the brain. For some time members of my family and myself have noticed changes in her personality and she had become paranoid about things. In some ways she just seems my same old mum and then all of a sudden she will just have outbursts. At first I thought it was her sorting out things and preparing for the end but she has now left the family home and keeps accusing my step dad of being mad and she is getting funny over money. She says that I am the only one who understands her but thats only because I agree with her over everything as it only distresses her if I dont. Has anyone else had this kind of problem? I dont want to go behind her back but she has told me that I cant speak to my step dad as he is going crazy. I know no one can tell me what to do but it be nice to hear that Im not on my own.
