Hi Susie, thanks for posting. Yes, all your feelings are indeed valid and seem totally appropriate to me. Sorry to hear about your sister. AML is indeed nasty. There are times when I feel very upset and really dont know my next step, seems anything I want to do just isnt worth it, why bother. Thankfully this doesn't last long. Recently I caught a reflection of myself and realised how sick I look reality was about to drag me down until I walked into the sunshine and saw the huge river and heard all the birds sqwarking and singing, nature has such a positive effect with me. There's no doubt your sister needs your love now, use your time, just being with her is valuable. Its my belief that conversation doesnt need to be too deep, about the past, the things your sorry about or anything too serious. Simply being with her at a difficult time will help you both feel ok.
