My Dad died on 12/30/06 from pulminary fibrosis. He was basically ok one month and then the next we were told he was going to die. It was awful watching him suffer. My parents would have been married 44yrs 6/22., so I know it's especially hard for my Mom. I'm having a hard time myself. I've tried to stay strong for my Mom but it's not easy. I have an older sister but she doesn't try to check on or help Mom much. Basically, she relies on me & her friends. The problem is sometimes she needs to talk about my Dad and some days I just can't because it gets me too upset. Usually, I try to change the subject. I feel guilty because I know she needs to talk about it. I want to be there for her but some days it's just too hard. What should I do? The last thing I want to do is hurt her feelings.
