Hi everyone, My mum was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer last October. I have been her primary carer as I live at home with her. She has had aggressive treatment of chemo, radio and a 14 hour surgery. She has finally returned home but I am struggling to undertake the role of caring for her and full time working. I guess I wanted reassurance that I’m not the only one struggling. I feel I have had to take on so much responsibility at such a young age and find I am now getting angry and jealous of those who have a “normal” life. It’s physically, emotionally and mentally draining. Its a role I love and I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, but I guess I want everyone else to understand. It’s a bit of a lonely time. I already see a psychologist every month. Any other young primary Carers out there? I’d love to share our experiences and help each other xo
