hi there, i’m very new to this so excuse the messiness of my question !!
my stepdad has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer, which has the lowest survival rate. the doctors are keeping everything very hush hush and keep saying “let’s just focus on managing his pain”, and are even speaking of discharging him.
i’m 18, and go to uni in a different country than where my mum and stepdad are, therefore i cant see them whenever i’d like.
how do you accept that a loved one is going to die and how do i deal with the fact my mother is going to be alone, grieving. i keep thinking of what happens when he dies, she’ll be a widow so young. how can i deal with this?
apologies for the mini vent i’m just so overwhelmed by cancer and it’s implications.
