Hello, I have never joined a community. I just feel very low now and thought maybe it would help. I am 60 and recently retired. I stay at home and take care of my husbands 100 year old mother now. I am the youngest of 5 siblings. I lost one brother quite a few years ago. We were not close so it did not affect me terribly. Two years ago I lost my second brother to skin cancer. Last September I lost my oldest brother to lung cancer. I was locky to get to go see him just before he died. I also reconnected with my sister-in-law (wife of second brother to die), we haad been very close when I was younger. She died suddenly in November of a stroke. It was so unexptected and hit very hard. My only remaining sibling has ovarian cancer. Yesterday her daughter said the doctor had given up hope and she would die soon. That is three brothers, a sister-in-law and now my sister. Our parents died several years ago. I am married to a wonderful man, have two lovely daughters and 6 grandchildren. Unfortunately both daughters live away. I have no friends, I have a hard time getting to know people. I feel alone and scared. I have to go see my sister and it will be so hard. I just had to tell someone.
