    Hello. To be honest just wondering how people deal with seeing someone who means the world to you deteriorate in front of you and dealing with members of the family.

    Hi Kayp,

     

    I’m very sorry to hear about your mother’s illness. Seeing a loved one deteriorate due to a terminal condition can affect each of us differentlyHow we cope during this stressful time will be individual to each person. It’s obviously common to find it an emotional time and talking about how you feel with someone else may help you deal with the impact her illness is having on you. This can be another family member, a friend, a counsellor or ourselves here at the Marie Curie community and the Support Line – 0800 090 2309.

     

    Some people can find it easier to cope if they understand more about the changes that may occur during this time - www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/being-there/end-of-life-preparation/changes.
