ok so my mother in law has breast cancer and shes been acting pretty weir. i diont mean liek shes depressed or anything what shes been doing is just been acting really needing and begging people for money and for rides and a bunch of other things that she use to be able to do before she found out she had breast cacncer...which was about a month ago. its like shes trying to make us feel bad for her and thinks that she can guilt us into doing everthing she wants us to. well me and her son arent stupid and were not giving into her every wnat and need. she can still hold a job but has chosen to quit because...well who knows why? shes finding every little excuse she can to milk everyone of money and get them to hand everythng to her! now my question is do you think that it is wrong that we dont wait on her like she wants us to? io mean like i said it not that she cant work she just decided to quit.

I think waiting on her like that would be the worst thing you could do. She needs to live her life to the fullest she can. My partner's father was recently diagnosed with leukemia, and one day he said something about me doing something for him, I forget what it was, because he was "terminally ill," and I looked at him and said, "You're not terminal." I wasn't, and am not, going to cater to him. Now, when he was going through chemo and didn't feel well, that was different. But when he's feeling OK, I'm treating him just like always. I think that's best for him. My partner does too. It's not that we aren't concerned about him, it's just that we don't want to act like he's dying when he's not. Kelly
