I have a topic today. I have a family member it seems like there side of the family there is always someone sick. Her grandfather has been very sick for a long time now. Just got out of the hospital last week. Now her dad just got put in the hospital, this has been going on now for months. I feel so bad but it seems like there is nothing you can do but be there for them, when you are needed. Sometimes I wonder how do people deal without pulling their hair out. Would love to hear some thoughts on this.

as you said sometimes there is just nothing to do but support them. It does like like when one person gets sick another follows in a family it is just awful, but we can't do much about it but pray, hope for the best and support our loves ones in their time of need.

It is actually a bit of a catch 22. We all want to be part of a large family... with every member loving each other. It does not happen very often... But when it does happen... there is a penalty to be paid. The more people you love... the more you are going to get hurt... as everyone will eventually get health problems. When you share the love... you also share the pain. And it is not only the health problems... but everything else. So the choice is... - Lots of love and lots of pain Or - No love and no pain There are two things in this life which come at a very high price... and usually send people broke. One is freedom... And the other is love...

I'm afraid we all have to encounter these lessons in life at some time or another. You are so sweet to care so much about your family members. All you can do is to give them a shoulder to cry on, a listening ear, and a tender heart for them to gather strength from to cope with this. Brightest Blessings on you and your family, that your heartaches end soon. x
