My mum found out yesterday that she has DCIS, but she has been told she is in very early stages. I''m supporting her the best i can and letting her talk openly to me about what she's feeling but for about a week and especially these past two nights she's been talking about what she wants to happen when she dies from this!!!! I don't know what to do or say apart from reassure her that she will not die from this. This is the second time she has been diagnosed with breast cancer, i don't know how severe it was last time as i was only a baby but she has said it was slightly worse before and she got through that fine. I don't know what to do because i know she worries about what would happen if she was to die but she's gotten to stage now that she truly believes she will die from this!! It's getting me so upset that whenever she starts talking about it i have to leave, and then i feel really bad for leaving her. I'm afraid that she'll think that i don't care, but i don't know how to stop her from telling me she's dying because i know she's not!! Please let me know any advice you may have for me. Thank-you.
