In the past, my mother had breast cancer (full recovery!) and I was struggling to find ways to support her while making myself "busy" so I didn't have to watch her stuffer post-chemo. It almost made me feel helpless when I saw someone I loved suffering but there was so very little I could do outside of "keep the house clean" and "do well in school." This is when I was a teenager and now I'm approaching my 30s. What advice do you have for those who are in a similar situation for not only self-care but perhaps additional (smaller?) things they can do to show their support for a sick loved one.
