Hi everyone, feeling pretty down at the moment. My mum has recently been diagnosed with stage 2 triple negative breast cancer. I’d love to say this is my first hit with cancer but my father passed away 4 years ago with lung cancer. This came completely out of the blue and I’ve already been struggling with bad anxiety so I didn’t handle diagnosis very well, well today was her first hit of chemo and I’m absolutely stressing out. I can’t attend any appointments due to my anxiety which is highly triggered around anything doctor especially needles. She has just gotten home and looks pale as anything and is feeling quite nauseous and I’m already stressed to the max but it’s only just the two of us. how can I help make her comfortable and help me stop freaking out 😔
