How I cope with my moms cancer pt.5

Hii everyone,

It’s been a while since I’ve updated you on my story. A lot has happened since my last post. Some of the news was good, but nothing comes without consequence. To those  who are reading this for the first time, my mom has terminal lung cancer. There is nothing more that modern medicine can do to  attempt to heal her. The option now is to expand the time she still has with us. When she was diagnosed in October 2014, we were told that she would live only for a few months; it’s now June 2016 and she is still here. Not without struggle, however.

Hii everyone,

When we discovered my mom was ill it was October 2014, now we are in April 2016 and she is still here with us. People around us say that she is doing well if she is still alive, but they are obviously wrong. You can say that she seems fine because she is still with us but her conditions are clearly getting worse.

Hi everyone,

I think everybody has experienced this situation: your loved ones are in a difficult situation, you want to ask them how they are doing but at the same time you are afraid to bother them. You are curious about their current situation but when you ask you probably get an irritated reaction or even worse: ‘I’m fine’ when they clearly aren’t. I struggle with this every day.

Hii everyone!

My first part about my mom was my most popular post I ever wrote. I feel so relieved that people wanted to read my story. At the same time, I feel exposed: what will people think of me when they read my thoughts? Maybe they think that I am overreacting or that I am not the only one who is struggeling with these things. Why does she not stop complaining and find professional help? But at the end, I do this because I want to share my experience and sometimes I have the feeling that outsiders don’t really know what is happening.

Hii everyone!

I started this blog as a way to share my love of make up and beauty. But not only that I also use these things as a way to keep my mind of a certain issue. An issue many families have to cope with sadly.
