My brother in law is dying of a lung condition. :(
For some reason, I think a lot lately about him & WHAT he must be thinking ---- and try to understand.
OF course, I can't ask - but has anyone ever heard anyone who is dying - relay - what do you think about? What is your perspective, knowing that you will not be here in a few months?
I'm 44, but never have really been around someone who is in process & also, where it is going to take a few months. I've only known people to die suddenly - or to have a very brief illness before dying.
And, while I'm at it - HOW DO WE HOLD IT TOGETHER - WHEN WE ARE AROUND SUCH PEOPLE? I can't seem to do it - I can't control my emotions & then I feel like I can't be around the person & then, I suspect, they feel a little bad b/c some people avoid them for similar reasons (& that they don't want the inevitable death to hurt as much)....
Any thoughts out there?
