I really need a venting session right now. Even just to let it all out. My grandma had a stroke today, and has a blood clot in her brain. My poor grandfather is still way too sick from his cancer to even be at the hospital with her. It truly amazes me how strong they are. The doctors said most people her age who have that kind of stroke don't make it, but they are expecting almost a full recovery. My grandma has been a woman of faith her whole life. I truly think that is what got her through, and I think she knows my grandfather still needs her. She is tough. It's been a long 6 months. My best friends grandparents, who are so close they are like my own, have both been sick too, one with pancreatic cancer. I look at all of them and am amazed at how well they are able to fight for their lives. They truly inspire me. At the same time it's been so hard to deal with. My grandparents are in MA and I am in AZ. 3,000 miles away. As strong as they are I feel bad for feeling so lost and sad. I feel like I need to be strong for them, but it's so hard. I wish I was there with them and I feel like I am losing precious time with them, as they are getting older. I don't know what to do. I call them and talk to them, but I feel like it's not enough. I am in school out here and I live with my fiance here, so it's not so easy to just pick up and move back home. I just need some support and I am asking for prayers for my family.

Does anyone know if a better RA forum than this one? I always loved to come here. I would read a lot & post some. Now it's so hard for me to read the posts.
