    Hi @Anuta - Welcome to this very supportive community. I'm sorry to read about your problems, but you will find others here who understand, whilst the rest of us care & support each other, so I'm very pleased you have joined us all.
    I wonder if you've also looked for help, & possible local support, with these 2 cancer charities. See: https://www.cancersupportuk.org/  &  https://www.macmillan.org.uk/
    I hope you don't mind me asking, & only say if you wish, but what problems does your son have, & do you receive any help & support for his care?

    I hope you don't mind, but I am including the Carers UK website if you would like to take a look, as they maybe able to provide information and support also if you are caring for your son -
