My mother has been struggling with lupus for years. She never takes very good care of herself anyway, but the last 4-5 years she has really gone down hill. Yesterday she told me that her lupus has gotten to the point they want to treat it with a low dose of chemotherapy.
I'm scared of the disease, I'm scared of the treatment and I scared because she doesn't have a very good support system immediately around her. I've told her me and the kids can pack up and come stay for awhile. I know she will never ask for help, so will probably just go without an invite.
What can I do to help her through the symptoms of the chemo? It is a low dose (pill form), but I'm sure that the poison she is putting in her body will still affect her. I have no idea what to do =-(
