For 6 months I fought my fight to live.   Today, I stood helplessly watching my mother as she passes away. 

I made my choice back at the beginning to not tell my mother what I was going through.  To spare HER the worry, I thought.  I felt I was saving HER but what did I lose in the end?  The last precious months of HER life, not mine. 

So much more I want to say, but not ready for.  I need to leave it here.

I am sending you a gentle hug and much sympathy on the death of your mother. You have time to process your decision not to tell her about your breast cancer and lots of understanding people to process it with. Just remember: Regret is a poison; stay away from it.
