I'm very sorry if this is the wrong forum to post this in, but I needed to talk please. Mum went for routine mammogram but has been recalled. She told me last night. The appointment is today and I'm off to work (my father is semi retired so he has gone with her).
I'm terrified and although I know all the stats and how unlikely cancer diagnosis is etc, it doesn't stop me thinking the worst.
I also feel terrible because she and dad have known for a week already and they didn't tell me because they didn't want me to worry. I'm a terrible worrier so I'm grateful but on the other hand, I also feel guilty they've been shouldering this concern so long and kept up a cheerful face.
I just want to get through today at work. Mum has decided she won't tell me til tonight because if it's good news.. great but also if it's bad news she doesn't want to tell me over the phone (fair enough!)
I messaged a friend last night and her sole support was "I'm sorry hun". Thanks.... really helpful. Good to know you're there when I REALLY need you.
Anyway yes... I don't know what I'm asking for but any advice I guess on getting through today without completely breaking down in the office would be appreciated.
