Hi, need advice
Mar 7, 2006
My name is Jen, and I am 23 years old. My mom has been living with lung cancer for 2 years now, and just recently my dad was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He goes in to have the Whipple procedure hopefully soon. I was reading some online information, and I realized that my dad probably has only a year to live. My mom, should have been gone a long time ago, but is still hanging on. Her health has unfortuanately been slipping lately, and I realize that she probably does not have long to go either. I don't mean to sound like a pessimist but I just want to be honest with myself.

Basically I was wondering if anyone had any advice to give on how to deal when you know there's not much time left to spend with the ones you love. My parents are my life and I don't know what I would do without them. I feel like it's a countdown to the end and it just doesn' seem fair that they have to leave before they've even gotten a chance to see me grow up and become an adult. None of my friends can relate, and I feel like a burden bringing it up to them. Any advice or words of wisdom would sincerely help. Thanks.
