Sick sister, worst pain of my life

My sister is 10 years old and I am 20 and has been terminally ill for 9 years of her life. I have been mourning not having a “normal” sister for the past 10 years. She is predicted to pass away in the next few weeks/months. This pain is so deep and unimaginable. It sometimes feels like this can’t be my life. I now live 4 hours away from my family and that makes it better and worse at the same time. I could use some words of encouragement/support. xx

Dear Lauryn

It’s so sad to hear of your story. Hopefully you will find some posts on here that you can relate to. I cannot imagine how hard it is for you.
Your journey is going to be an awful long one and I hope we, as a group, can help and support you in some way.
I find when I’m struggling or hit a low I come on here and post my thoughts. I know nobody can change the final results but it helps that everyone here understands, and allows us to say exactly want we are feeling

Please stay in touch and take care
