Both parents have terminal illnesses


Recommended Posts

My father has pancreatic cancer and stopped his chemo a few months ago so I know we are on borrowed time with him.  Last week I learned that my mother has TB and only a few weeks to live.  I feel like I am operating outside of the real world at the moment and struggling to focus, not been to work for a few days but I know I should.  My parents are both remarried and I cannot believe that quite soon I will be in the position of only having step-parents.  I am a middle aged woman so I should know that this time would come but I really can't process it now it is becoming real. I am trying to stay strong for both step-parents and my husband and teenage daughter but I am not sure how long I can remain the strong one.
