My 30 year old daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer in July, has since had mastectomy and chemotherapy. She is having her other breast removed this February. I do not live in her city so moved in with her and her husband and baby for four and a half months so I could take care of the baby and do household chores so her husband could work. I love my daughter but I have found this time very difficult as she has been very short with me and angry. (Not all the time as we have also had good times as well).
I held my tongue so many times but inwardly felt very lonely and sad. I tried to ask my daughter not to be rude to me but usually got the same reply.
I really struggle with feeling guilty that I could not be a saint and never feel down or angry with her given that she is and has been through all that she has.
Any thoughts for me to cope when I go back to stay soon?
