my mother was diagnosed w/ Stage III Pancreatic Cancer last christmas. Although she has lost a lot of weight, she is still fully-functional. But she does not want to get up off the couch. I can barely get her to eat. I know pain has something to do with it, but I asked her this morning, if she was giving up on life on me, and she said YES because she is tired of being sick and just siting in the house. but then when I try to get her out to go do something, even for a little ride, she does not want to. I am at a serious loss of what I should do for her. I think my whole problem is that I have not come to the realization that ultimately there is not much I can do for her. But she still has life left in her, and I want to take any steps that I can to ensure she lives it out to the fullest. Any suggestions to help this depressive state? She is already on anti-depressants and I have already taken the steps with psychologists speaking with her. But it has been to no avail.
