My mom has cancer, is it selfish to not want to be around her sometimes?
About 6 months ago My mom found out that she had 3rd stage cancer. They are saying its terminal now. I moved close to my mom so I could spend time with her. However, she doesn't know that I know she's sick. I found out through another person. It's so hard seeing her in such a bad condition. My mom doesn't want her kids to know because she doesn't want people to feel bad for her, she's always been like that... I want to be with her but its ssoooo hard to hide my emotions when I'm seeing her slip away. Is it selfish to not want to be by her sometimes?
