My Dad has been battling prostate cancer for many years now, he's quiet young. It metastasised to the liver and he's been given 6-12 months, he got the news a few weeks ago. I have been able to keep up a brave face for the family and they need someone to keep it together.... but i'm absolutely devastated. I have no one to talk to - i have friends but its such heavy news for people who haven't experienced it and i don't want to burden people with my problems. I don't want to be upset in front of anyone - my family in particular, but it feels like i can't breathe at times, like a weight is just on top of my chest. Anyone who has been through this please tell me what helped. I have so many mixed feelings of guilt and sadness. Writing this has been tough, but its feel better - cancer doesnt discriminate and i know everyone on here is going through a journey. If anyone can help, even just a gentle word - hopefully i can return the favour one day
