    Diagnosed

    Oh No

    I was told I would need biopsies done to determine if they were cancerous. My mother had passed away due to Metastatic Breast Cancer that had turned into Level four Bone Cancer, she had died within a month of being put in the hospital for having a low calcium level. She did not want Chemotherapy or to be in the Hospital or for Hospice to step in. I had taken her home and administered her medicines and kept her as comfortable as possible as she withered away from cancer. So my , "OH NO" threw me into a complete state of fear. Among other things.

    Psychosocial

    Other Care

    I had started seeing a LISW for my depression and anxiety. I have stopped seeing her due to me not liking to be out in the public.
