The whole time that my mother was sick with cancer, she kept a journal. It was a journal about everything she was going through, how she was coping, and how she felt. She told my sisters and I that we were welcome to read it, but at the time I felt like it was a violation of her privacy. Even though she told me I could read it, I just didn't feel right doing so. Today makes six months says Mom passed away, and I keep thinking about the journal. My dad still has it and I don't know whether or not I should read it. I don't know if it would help me or hurt me. I want to understand how she was feeling and I think it may give me back a piece of her, but what if how she was feeling was so horrible, I can't deal with it? I just don't know what I should do, I have very mixed feelings about it. Has anyone one else had a similar situation? Any advice?
