My mom has had cancer on and off for the past 16 years. Over the course of the last 6 months the cancer has spread to various places. She's so delicate they can't give her anymore chemotherapy. So we are just trying to make her "comfortable"; which pretty much means we are just waiting at this point. In addition to all of this she has mental health issues which complicate the situation further. I try to be there for her as much as I can. I just have a hard time doing anything for myself without feeling guilty. I feel completely overwhelmed sometimes and I feel like I can't take a break. The stress is starting to turn into anxiety. I was just wondering if anyone out there has the same issue? and how others deal with this?
