i am writing for my sister. She has breast cancer. Today they gave her results from a Mamma Print? She is high risk. I guess this means she needs chemotherapy, which she was hoping very much to avoid.

right now she is in her room eating. she is overweight and food is her answer to a lot of things.

mostly i just wanted to check in. i'm scared about what the chemo will do to her health. and i don't think i'm very good at caregiving. i'm in al-anon and "overgave" for so many years and in so many situations I just tend to withdraw.

she does have a circle of friends who support her. so there is that.

depression, anxiety, upper denture, benign prostate hyperplasia
cymbalta, lamotrigine, zyprexa, klonopin

Sorry that your sister will be going through chemo. I have a friend who went through it. It's not going to be fun that is for sure. Showing support and maybe cooking some meals to freeze or running errands would be a great way to help without necessarily being the one taking care of her. If that makes sense.
