I’m really struggling at the moment and I just needed somewhere to vent and to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
I’m 28 and I’m currently 3 months pregnant with my first baby. Just before I found out I was pregnant my Dad was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer which unfortunately isn’t curable. The doctors are currently saying he is too weak for chemo and they are reluctant to operate on him due to his age. He’s really very unwell at the moment although we can’t seem to get a proper prognosis.
I don’t live very close to my parents and I’m currently juggling full time work and being able to get up there to see him as much as possible.
At the moment my brain is in overdrive and it seems like I can only ever feel one thing at a time - either I’m over the moon about the pregnancy, or I’m in a mess thinking about Dad.
Has anyone else had a similar experience at all? At the moment I just feel so overloaded and it’s a real struggle.
Thank you in advance,
