So my mum has cancer, she’s had for around 6-7 years now so it’s nothing new. She’s also lost all the nerve endings in her legs and feet, meaning she can’t walk long distances etc… It was my birthday 3 days ago and we went out, which was ok, however i didn’t get a cake or anyone singing happy birthday to me. This made me upset because it’s a family tradition and we’ve always done it. I expressed these feelings to my mum yesterday and about how it’s made me upset, and she turned it around on her saying “i feel bad enough, stop trying to make me feel worse about it. You know i can’t go out like i used to, stop blaming me for this” and i feel so bad. But the thing is, she could’ve gone out and got a cake because she has a mobility scooter, my dad is always free. And idk if i’m overreacting about a birthday cake.
