My Mom was diagonosed with Stage 3 Lung cancer in July. They did chemo and Radiation. They had hoped to maybe do surgery but yesterday we went for our second surgical opinion and were told they would not consider it because of the risk. I have been taking care of my Mom since this started. She has been depressed and is on antidepressants. She had hoped for surgery but now that it is not an option she has lost all hope. She cries all of the time and feels she just wants it to end. She said the hardest part is not knowing how long she has. I am at the end of my rope for I do not know what to do to help her. I know that I can't possibly know what she is going through. I just want to help her try to enjoy what time she has left but don't know how. She is very bitter and angry and sad. She takes all of her emotions out on me. I can handle all of that I just don't know where to go from here. Any ideas.
