Why do I mentally torture myself.
I'm a 35 year old single mom of two healthy, great kids. I don't know why I do it, but I read a lot about childhood cancer. I'm scared to death that one of my kids will get cancer. I don't worry about my health, just my kids. When I read stories of parents going through that, it breaks my heart. I can't even imagine that happening to one of my kids. It hurts to read those things, but I keep doing it. It brings me no satisfaction....... The vicious cycle continues, the more I read, the more sad I get, the more I worry about my kids and read more.
