My sister has just been diagnosed with breast cancer. it is on one side and has spread to the lymph node but all in all for a crappy diagnosis it isnt too bad she is strong and positive and will get through it. problem i have is now this has happened i dont want my hubby to touch me!! why?? i have no idea but i just dont like it and makes me feel all icky. am going to the doctor to get checked out and hopefully that will make me feel a bit better. why would i be feeling like this i dont understand. its not me with cancer.

  • I hope you’ve come past this now.


  • My sister in law was diagnosed last year and have accompanied her on some trips for her medical visits etc and she and we are all being positive and supportive . Probably you are just feeling anxious and fearful which is normal feeling . Maybe talk to a good doctor and counsellor for relief .


  • Sorry to hear this news about your sister; wishing her well with her treatment. Cancer impacts on everyone in a family and the shock and the feelings are real. I would suggest you seek some counselling to discuss your feelings and also a visit to your GP to address your own concerns. Also; joining a support group with your sister may be a good idea too.


  • I think it’s probably just shock and trauma… But if you feel the same in a few weeks, you should probably talk to a professional.


  • I’m sorry to hear your sister has cancer. Sounds like you will be a great support for her.
    Is it possible that her diagnosis has made you feel like you shouldn’t enjoy yourself?
    Good idea to get checked by the doctor
