Hi @ali1974, I hope you don't mind. I augmented the title of your discussion because I think this is a really good topic of discussion. Let me know if you agree with the title change "BRCA2 and MSH6: Family finds it hard to discuss cancer & feelings."
I'd also like to invite @danielad@elsie37@jkh@rarelybees2889@abartels@cindylb and others into this discussion.
First, I want to acknowledge your feelings of "enough already" and "no more doctors." It's exhausting. So often family and friends impose an unreasonable expectation on the patient to have strength and the ability to console or provide comfort. Largely that's because of fear. Fear of the unknown. Fear of loss. Fear of mortality. A cancer diagnosis throws you and them into a place that you're not supposed to have to face for years yet. You have to process as they do they. They may take longer.
Here on Mayo Clinic Connect, you can talk about anything and everything, speak about the tough stuff and the uncomfortable topics. We get it.
