my son's fight with stomach cancer stg IV began 3 weeks ago . He's only 23 for god's sake, i'm trying to cope but not doing well, i have 4 children at home, including a 2-almost 3 year old and am a single mother. I can't shake the constant guilt and sense of doom, i am trying to stay calm, not panick and be strong and encouraging for him but i cannot lose him i will not survive, i'm having trouble doing the simplest of tasks, i know this sounds selfish because of the other children but he's my first-born and the love of my life....i cannot bear the thought of life without him, please help, i need hope. Is this normal? There is hope for surgery after chemo but i cannot get past the "what if's". I don't know what to do , this is consuming me.
