This is my first time on this site. I came across this thread in hopes to find people who understand what I am going through. I don't have a lot of people in my life that I can talk too because a lot of them haven't experienced a loss of a parent and/or they don't really know what to say etc. I think that comes with being younger.
A small introduction.. My name is Chelsea and I am 27 years old. My mom has been recently diagnosed with leptomeningeal spinal cancer. It is terminal and they said she has anywhere from 4 weeks vs 2 to 3 months left to live. She is my best friend and this experience is extremely painful and even devastating. She doesn't even look or act the same and I feel helpless in regards to making her pain go away. To top it off, I am in med school. That is a whole other can of stress and difficulty. I want to try to be strong however.. I believe this is the lowest I have ever felt in my life.
I hope I am in the right place. First time I came across this website.
Thank you for your time,
My dad is ringing a lot. I have been no contact for approx 3 months now. i cannot answer as I know they will guilt and shame me about making them feel bad. This tactic usually works but I realized I cannot be held responsible for their feelings. Anyway I have realized dealing with complex PTSD I cannot have family in my corner as they are not helpful. Anyway this whole situation is bringing me...
I have had a parent who is a habitual liar and I have adopted the habit in my life and I want to stop. Even small things. I struggle with real and not real because of my schizophrenia too. My wife can't be with someone who has this issue because her dad had it too. I would understand if she wants to leave because I am still working on this issue but I wish we could solve it without her leaving...
