I concur with what everyone else has said. As a mom of two adult children, I was worried about them as to how they were handling my diagnosis almost as much as I was worried about me. I guess that’s just what moms do. So my best “mom” advice to you is to say that you need to take care of yourself. Make sure you eat right, that you get enough sleep, and at 14, I presume you’re in high school, so continue doing your best in school. I bet your mom wants you to be a kid, so take care of yourself so that you can help her.
