Re: feeling guilty

i think you really need to explain your feelings to your sis, it sounds like she is off-loading a lot on to you and you already have a lot on your plate. Its great that she has someone to talk to but there are plenty of professional services that you can both tap into. Cancer treatment isnt just about the drugs and the surgery, there is also specialist counselling and complimentary therapies out there to help with the emotional and mental pressures. This is offered side-by-side at some hospitals but you may have to dig around to find out whats out there locally - sometimes its free too. It may take some of the strain off you. Has she had a copy of the BCC pack? This helped me through some of the initial stages.
All the best.

Re: feeling guilty

Hi, Sorry i,m not able to advice you properly but I don´t think you should feel guilty, you by he sounds of things are doing your utmost best to help your sister.

The feelings your sister is showing is totally norm, I doubt if anyone of us on this site haven´t been through the angry stage at one time or another.

Does your sister have internet access if so is there any way you could persude her to take a look at our site? Thats what we are all here for, scream, shout as much as you like, you won´t offend anyone!

Im sure she sounds like she needs friends who understand totally how she is feeling and in return we maybe able to help take a little pressure of you.

Good luck, Teresa x

feeling guilty

Hi everyone - this is my first post. Horrible to think I now need this forum, but life does through things at you!
My sister has just had a mastectomy and is having chemo. She is going through a very angry phase (hates everyone and everything) but refuses to talk to anyone except me.
Trouble is, I'm drained with the strain of working full time, looking after two very elderly infirm parents and being the support for sister.
I feel so guilty when I want to stay away from her - I wouldn't swap places with her for the world.
Anyone else have these same issues?
