My mother was diagnosed with stomach cancer a few weeks ago, so I am new to this board. She (and I) get easily depressed under normal circumstances, so naturally I want her to pay special attention to herself, her emotions and try not to not bottle it up. She is open to counselling, but insists that only someone who has stomach cancer can possibly understand how she is feeling. Do you agree? Did you get support from councelor and find it effective/helpful? Do you have any advice or words of wisdom for her? Thanks so much.
