Some of you might remember me I joined this site in 2012 when I got my stage iii cancer diagnosis, my own health has been ok. However, my son aged 22 was found Christmas 2019 having overdosed and was admitted to ICU expected to die. He survived and now he is in a rehabilitation hospital with a serious brain injury. I don't know how I have survived it and the COVID he picked up in hospital. I was just coming out of the cancer haze and now this. I feel broken again.
