3 years my mum was diagnosed with anal cancer. As of saturday she told us her prognosis was terminal. Right not I'm not dealing very well with it and I have been the strong one so far. I feel like I'm putting a brave face on for my family and falling apart when I get home with my partner.
Just to add to it my partners mum was diagnosed with terminal cancer 2 years ago, so we both just get upset if we try to talk about anything.
My partner is insisting I go to the docs and find somebody to speak too because he knows my mental health is suffering. But I really dont think the doctors will be able to help, they dont have a great reputation around us for mental health.
Can anyone suggest any groups they've used to cope, as when mum goes I really am losing my best friend. I'd like to be prepared, as much as I can be, I'm in the north lincs area if anybody can advise.
