I went to a carer's group yesterday run at the hospice. It was good meeting with others who are caring for people with cancer and good to talk about my situation with my mother who has vascular dementia and lung cancer. Unfortunately there is not an evening group as I only went yesterday because I am recovering from an operation and walking on crutches. The Alzheimers society run evening sessions so why can't cancer groups do the same? You wouldn't believe I am in SE London as there is nothing at all available. Went to see mum today and she expressed pain and has a nasty cough. It is very difficult knowing she has cancer and being so helpless too as she does not know why she has pain. It upsets me to see her.
