My mom has a rare form of uterine cancer (UPSC) that has relapsed quickly and aggressively. The oncologists did not beat around the bush in that the prognosis with recurrence is poor. Everything I have read online is grim. I am struggling to maintain a positive attitude.
People keep saying that if we just "think positive" she will beat this, when surgery, chemo and radiation have barely slowed the beast down. I am getting bombarded with research and "miracle cures" that leave me feeling like I am not doing enough.
I feel like I am just trying to face reality...but am I really just being a pessimist?
