My Mom is ill, she has a low grade neuroendocrine liver tumor, dementia, macular vision problems, diabetes, left mastectomy and more. We have gotten a diagnosis from John Hopkins in Baltimore the cancer will most likely not cause the end of her life, it will be infections or something else. Since we got a word in November about the liver tumor I have been constantly depressed and worried. I don't want to loose my Mom, I cry all the time and always try and think of any thing I can do to help something from going wrong. She has been in the hospital twice since January with UTIs. When she gets them, she goes through states of getting weak and not eating, and I get her to the hospital, panic, depress, and worry. I also have a three year old little girl I love dearly. If it were not due to my adult daughter helping out with her, I don't know what I would do. I was on Prozac for years, but decided to go off it last summer. I got too many electric zaps from it. My doctor a few weeks ago put me on Zoloft, that did nothing but give me electric zaps. Now I am on Pristiq, and am getting help with it with ativan. I always feel so terrible and worried, I don't know how to make this go away. Today I took my little girl for a Spring walk, took her to Mass, and then did some PT exercises with my Mom. I just went through the motions, and feel absolutely awful inside. I haven't been able to find a support group to attend. Can anybody here help me out? Sorry to bother everyone, I am looking for help.View Thread
