I'm asking for advice before anything happens. My mother is ill and has been for years. I've known most of my life that she will not live to be really old. She's only 55 now and not in good shape. I worry about her everyday now. She could still have a few years, but to be honest, it wouldn't be unheard of if something happened to her within even a year. The thing is, even though I know something could happen, I don't think I could deal with it. I fear that it would send me into a state of constant anxiety and possibly depression. I just don't know how to make myself ready. Any advice? I think the reality is setting in that I could NEVER see or talk to her again. I just can't wrap my brain around that. I'm not ready to let go. I don't know how anyone could ever be.
