Thank You, you brought tears to my eyes. Which is very hard to do. Everything you said makes so much sense. I'm sure you are right. Especially my son. He would love to know that he helps me. We are very close.
I've always been the strong one. The one everyone comes to for help or advise. The one (everyone thinks) that can handle it all. And I do put up a good front.
As you know its hard to be the weak/sick one. I've always been the care taker. But it would feel really good, i'm sure to let someone take care of me. My husband does try, but I also hide most of how I'm feeling, physically, from him. Sometimes he can tell anyway. But it's still hard to let myself go. Let my guard down.
But I will give it my best shot.
Thanks again, your response meant the world to me. I can really relate.
I agree with what each of these wonderful members have said to you. It is ok for you to admit that you are tired and your are firghtened expecially for your son. To watch your child suffer no matter what age is unbearable but I sense that you will be there for him always. Do let him know how you feel and your sister too. Let them know that the 3 of you will have to be there for each other.
Remember you have this wonderful group of members who are always here and willing to listen and talk to you. Another source is the national CCFA, and here is the link to their site:
Bless you and post to us, let us take some of the brunt of you feelings and give you some positive feedback.
