So my mother has end stage metastatic Breast cancer. She had just started chemotherapy a month ago but the treatment has been stopped after one and half cycles as her PET CT showed that the treatment had had no effect.
We went from a prognosis of several years to a few weeks over the space of a month and I'm not sure I know how to cope. I feel very emotional but I'm having to keep it under wraps for the sake of my mum. I wonder if anyone here has had any experience of dealing with anticipatory grief and how they managed. I don't want to ruin what time we have left by being depressed.
I'm an only child, and my dad passed away many years ago, so I have no support structure in place. I'm also currently at uni which is also a concern.
