I am so confused and need some advice for my mom. She was just diagnosed a week ago. She was told that she is in accelerated phase of Ph+CML. She has been put on Sprycel. Its only been 2 days and she is saying that she cant live like this and she doesn't want to take it. She is having "waves" of headaches, nausea, vomiting, stomach knot feeling, and crying. I just don't know what to do for her. I live in another state and flew in to help her. I have been here a week but I have to go back to work tomorrow. She has been crying all day and I think its because she doesn't want me to leave. But I feel like she is trying to make me feel bad by saying "Go back home to your life, you have done all you can do for me" and "I am going to need some help and I have no-1". Although I have two sisters that live 5mns away and they don't want to help her. one says she has a 3month old to care for and she cant, the other...well my mom doesn't want her over here.
I try to be as positive about this situation as I can. This diagnosis may not be affecting me directly (my body) but she is my mom and its affecting me indirectly. I feel over whelmed and I need a break. I plan on coming back in about 2 months. I'm worried for her because she does not tolerate being sick at all. I cant suggest anything to her without her biting my head off. I just don't know what to do to help her. Plus I feel guilty for leaving tomorrow.
Thanks for reading....
