You may experience a range of emotions as you take care of your loved one who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. You might feel sad, afraid, angry and worried. You may experience grief, guilt, anxiety and depression, loneliness or hopelessness. There is no right or wrong way to feel or react and these feelings are all normal.

 

One of the first steps in coping with these feelings is to recognize that they exist and that it’s normal to have them. Try to give yourself time to understand and work through your range of emotions so that you can provide the comfort and emotional support for your loved one.
