I have a rituxan treatment that cannot be rescheduled for the same day my little brother has oral surgery. He wants to go to his friends house afterwards because he doesn't think my parents will give him the attention he needs when i've had a treatment the same day. I keep trying to tell him it's different from when we were younger and I was on cytoxan and everything was screwed up, because I'm 18 now and I can go to the hospital on my own, get home on my own, and I don't NEED my parents, plus rituxan is not cytoxan, it's so much better, but he's really angry and upset about it. Our relationship has been strained for years because of this, I was diagnosed when I was 9 and he was 7 and now he's 15 and he's convinced the whole thing is about to start over. I don't know what to tell him to say it's not true, I just feel so guilty and horrible right now.
