Im 15 and my brother has down syndrome. We just recently found out that our mother has breast cancer. There is a thing called "Friendship Club" at our school Its where regular ed kids are paired up with special ed kids and we go on trips to the zoo, movies, etc. Well they have taken my brother everywhere over the summer just so that he wont think about mom's cancer. She goes to support groups. My dad does the same. And, like i said my brother has his friendship club buddies. But my friends arnet the ones that you talk to cancer about. So im left writing in a notebook. Which really gets me nowhere. I cry everyday because, since mom dosent feel good and dads stressed out they will snap at me for little things, and that dosent help at all. Ill just break down for like 10 mins and then ill be fine. but this happens like 5 times a day. We're not the "ideal" family. We dont talk at the dinner table, we dont kiss each other goodnight everyday. i feel like we're just kind of stuck in this house. What im asking is how can i get help without my parents knowing, cause right now they think im fine but in reality im crying everynight because of mom.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
