when you are at the end of the life road

you may be curious that why I post this topic, which is very miserable for people to rethink. We are used to all sorts of news on earthquake, fires, gun shots and surely off course diseases. But no matter how familiar we are with these news, we might or might not be truly touched until it really approaches us. I do not have the courage to say it out now until three days later when I read the medical report. I would not believe it and accept any bloody truth until the last moment I see the solid proof. My mom is suffering from serious illness. I can do nothing about it. She is strong but I am not. I can never feel how she is feeling now when one knows that the road ahead is drawing to its end. How does it feel? sense of fear? I am horried by even thinking of it. It's cloudy outside. Inside, my heart is gloomy.

I'm very sorry that you have received such sad news magic9. It seems that you mom has reached the stage where she has accepted her illness and what is to follow. She does seem strong. You may find that you are stronger than you think you are but, even if you're not, you don't have to be strong...you only have to be there for your mom. Spend time with her...talk about nice things...do little things to brighten her day and you may find that her smile brightens yours. If you have family and/or friends who can help you through this difficult time, please let them. What you are going through matters, too.
