My mother is sick. She’s been sick for about 10 years, with no real diagnosis, and no successful treatment. It began after a D&C procedure (after a miscarriage), even though we only recently realized that maybe there was a link. 10 years of constant nausea, not being able to keep anything down, even water, during the sick spells, severe weight loss. I have watched an unknown sickness cause my mother to just waste away. And I don’t know what to do. The helplessness is just overwhelming, to the point that i’m inured to it. I’ve cried, screamed, prayed, and I just don’t know what more I can do. And my mom? She’s at the end of her rope. I see it in her eyes, I hear it in her voice. I don’t want her to give up, because I want my mom around. I want her to meet her great-children, see Izzy graduate from college, see us move into a house. All of the things she wanted for our lives. But with that said, I hate seeing her suffer. If she died, I would be devastated, but at least the pain, the nausea, the depression, the sickness….it will be gone. Is that an awful thing to say? Is it awful to think? I just……I want her to get the help that she needs. She’s been to specialists, taken a zillion different meds, yet nothing had been able to offer her any relief. I want my happy, healthy mom back.
