Hope that you're ok x
So basically we've started studying a new book in English at school. We're only 1 chapter in at the moment but the book is based around a character who is a young carer for his mum - who has cancer. I can already tell that it's going to be a recurring theme throughout the book. I'm a young carer (though it's really not that bad for me; I just have to help out occasionally) and it brings up a lot of emotions that I try not to think about. We're doing it at home over zoom at the moment but it is still really hard to concentrate and do half decent work when I am reading a book about such a tough subject to think or talk about. Now I dread every English lesson I have. I'm not comfortable telling my teacher about it, even though she's my favourite teacher. Plus my brother hasn't actually been diagnosed yet and I also don't want my parents to worry about me because they think I'm not struggling at all and if they knew, it would make things worse.
Sorry I'm kind of ranting a bit. But does anyone have any advice?
