Re: Both parents are dying and I dont know what to do
I don't know if I am much help but just wanted you to know that I totally understand what you are going through. My parents were both sick w/cancer at the same time...father w/prostate and mother w/breast cancer. They died 15 months apart at ages 64 and 67...mom was very sick when dad died. (Oh, and my husband also had a brain tumor w/surgery just after my father died, while my mom was sick...but that's another story.) I have one sibling but he lived 1000 miles away so I was on my own. It was and still is the worst time of my life. I was a mess trying to deal w/their house, business, medical needs and still try to take care of my 3 young kids. I honestly don't know how I got through all that. My advice to you would be to talk to your parents, make sure you're all at peace w/everything going on. I didn't...my parents didn't talk about what was happening to them. After my parents died, I sought counseling. I only wish I had done that during that awful time...maybe I wouldn't have ended up in such a mess. Anyway, sorry to ramble on...I know it's a tough time for you. You'll get through it because you won't have a choice. I hope things are easy for your parents...take care of yourself.
