I am very sorry to read about your mum's diagnosis and of how you are struggling to face this again. Everyone reacts to news like this differently and there is no right or wrong reactions. The issue is also compounded by the fact that this situation; you may be experiencing a roller coaster of emotions that are very confusing including natural concerns about how you will manage. Many people tell us that it can help to talk over your feelings with somebody. You are more than welcome to contact our Support Line on 0800 090 2309, if you would like to talk about your feelings. We are not trained Counselors but we will provide a listening ear.
We have information on our website that looks at practical and emotional ways in which you can support your mum. It will also have helpful tips about taking care of yourself. You can find the information here : https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/being-there.
