My mom, who was diagnosed with cancer a year ago, is a single mom, living with her mom and dad, and dealing with her first child.
She says she’s always been tired, but the stress has been especially intense this year.
The stress has become so great, she said, that she hasn’t been able to do her work at work.
She is a registered nurse, but her job requires her to have her phone at hand 24/7.
She can’t just be a patient at work, she needs to be able to be there.
She’s seen nurses lose their jobs and lose their lives, and now her son is living with his dad, who is also battling cancer.
“It’s very difficult for my mom because she’s been so stressed.
She has so many problems, she’s tired,” said my mom, whose real name is Tanya.
“And I know my mom is in a very bad place, she has been through so much, she really has been in pain.”
My mom says she is sick and tired of living her life as if nothing is happening.
“I know there’s a lot going on that I’m just numb,” she said.
“There are so many things that I can’t do, there’s so many different things that need to be done.”
My mother has spent a lot time thinking about her future, especially in terms of her job.
She wants to start a family, and she’s already looking to move out of her current home in Vancouver to a house closer to work.
But she says her stress level is just too much.
“You have to have some sort of balance,” she told ABC News.
“If you have to do more stress than you need to, you’re going to have trouble.”
I don’t know if it’s my job, but I have to be a good mother.
She doesn’t think she’ll be able get back to being a nurse, and has started a GoFundMe campaign to help pay for her medication.
But I think she has to go through something, she added.
“My life has been so hard for me, and I know it’s going to be really hard for my son,” she added, “but at the same time, it’s also going to make it easier for me to be the best mom that I possibly can be.”
My experience of stress is not unusual, said Dr. Andrew Noyes, an emergency room physician at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre in Toronto.
“Most people have had a few bumps and bruises in their life, and a few things in their work life that have happened,” he said.
But Dr. Noyers said he’s seen patients with stress disorders who have had more extensive cancer treatments and had been in and out of the hospital for a longer period of time.
“What we don’t see is people with cancer who are struggling to live a normal life,” he added.
The American Cancer Society says stress is one of the top three causes of death for cancer patients, followed by heart disease and depression.
But many people don’t realize that the stress that comes with dealing with cancer can have an even greater impact on their quality of life.
A study by the American Psychological Association found that people with high stress were twice as likely as those with low stress to experience feelings of hopelessness, depression and fatigue in their daily lives.
“We know that there’s stress, and that stress is associated with a lot more symptoms of anxiety, depression, stress-related impairment and suicide,” said Dr
