I feel like everything is spiralling out of control. My Mam got diagnosed nearly 12 months ago with terminal small cell lung cancer, she has had chemo and radiotherapy her treatment finished at the beginning of December. She has been generally ok with a few ups and downs. I suspected she was still smoking a while ago but she denied it, she is a grown woman who knows the facts so I didn't say anymore. A few weeks ago my younger brother found cigarettes and went mad, I told him that I had already suspected she was smoking and he was mad at me. We had a heated row and now he won't speak to me. I just feel like I'm losing everyone I understand his frustration and that he is just taking his upset out on those closest but it is making it uncomfortable being round him as he lives with my Mam. They used to be close but now that has changed, I feel like he is going to regret his actions and told him to spend quality time with our Mam but he doesn't. We don't know how long we've got left with her so I try to cherish that time and do nice things with her. We used to do things with the 3 of us but now he won't come the whole situation is breaking my heart. He is a real stubborn character and I just can't make him see that we need to make of the time left with her. I have tried to reach out to him but he won't listen. X
