Today I will be talking about stress of seeing your love ones when they’re sick. Stress we all experience it. In fact I’m experiencing it at the moment.
It all started when I went to my Nan and pops house one night after school in 2016 just before Christmas. They said “we need to talk” straight away I knew something was wrong my heart was pounding they sat me down on the couch and my pop started off by saying “I have cancer” my heart sank and I started to cry. Even now I feel like I will cry as it brings back so many bad memories. Also when I was only three years old he had cancer around Christmas and my parents thought he was no going to make it. But he survived for another six years until now. When he told me he also had a little tear in his eye so did Nan. After I had stopped crying he showed me where he had an operation that day. It made me squirm when he showed me there where to small tubes going in him.
When he is in hospital I try to visit him every day but sometimes I don’t because it causes me to stress too much. At first he started chemotherapy but it caused him to have blisters all over his body so he has decided to have a stem sell trance plant witch is probable what saved him last time.
My Nan on my Dads side had a lot of trips to the doctor because her leg was in agony. I always pushed her in a wheel chair to the doctors after a few x-rays the doctor confirmed that she had a slip disc in her leg. The doctor suggested that she should take her to a hospital for rest bite. That night we took her to the hospital for rest bite like the doctor suggested. I visited her every day but my Dad and I noticed that she was becoming more and more forgetful she showered with her clothes on and she called my dad her Husband’s name and she called me Chloe (her cat’s name.) About a week later we got a meeting with the doctor and he said “she has severe dementure” it broke my heart I had so much stress piled on me like a ton of bricks thrown on me.
It caused me a lot of stress but I found it useful to listen to music, keep a journal, tell a friend or talk to your parents.
