shelliemacs Posted June 19, 2003 Share Posted June 19, 2003 Mom told me tonight that she is sick of it all and wants to quit treatment. She said she has had enough. She is sick of being sick. I kept trying to tell her that the treatment is working despite how awful she feels and that it will get better. I told her that I think she needs an anti-depressant and she said "No, I am not taking any more pills" She is sick of being tired, sick of feeling fatiged, sick of getting chemo, sick of all the side effects, sick of being a burden (which she isn't and we keep telling her that) I am devastated, I told her I moved home because of her and that if she gives up her husband, my step father will be alone at 58 and I will be alone without a mom, and my sisters kids wont have any grandma. She would not eat. she says chemo destroyed her entire appetite. Our onc. told us only last wednesday that coming off the steroids you go through about a month of a funk and then it gets better. I dont know what to do, I dont know how to help her. I can't watch her sit back and die. Maybe if the CT scan she has the first week of July will be clean and then it would make her fight again. How can I help her. How can I make her want to fight on. How can I convince her that I need her to keep going and get through it. I am sitting here begging GOD out loud to help me. Please someone tell me what to do. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
