I'm so lost...The relationship between my mum and I is toxic. She is undergoing chemo for stage 4 pancreatic cancer. I feel obligated to look after her as she is alone and I'm an old child. I'm tired of the controlling,the snapping and guilt trippin. Walking on egg shells under so much stress is too much. I'm trying my best to help her but....I want to walk away. Being at her side through this is killing me. My kids are tired of being treated like crap and so am I! I'm a single parent and feel like it's time to do what's best for my kids. Anyone else had a similar experience? How did you cope? Did you walk away or stay? I'm so lost 😞

Hello. On the 8/12/2017 my dad was diagnosed with cancer. It started in his lungs and has spread throughout his body.... brain/spine/stomach. It's been a roller coaster since then. I've been asked to be strong for my mum/dad and my kids. Which I have done to the best of my ability. Now that stress is showing up physically. I'm learning that pushing down the pain is not productive, not in this situation anyway. How do you all cope?
