• Guilt

    Asked by Tinya on Friday, January 24, 2014


    My sister has CLL AND I feel guilty, my sister has cancer not me, yet I feel so horribly lost right now, I wish I could be with her all the time, I wish I lived closer. I don't want to place my sadness on her, so I haven't told her how scared I am that her life has been shortened. I realize we al only have the moment we live in, but with her medical problems and now cancer I feel like I am going to loose her sooner than anyone thinks, I just don't feel hopeful about this situation. It's hurts so bad the emotional pain and fear is almost unbearable.

      I will take much of the advice you all have given me and like I said yesterday, I am very grateful for the input. I am just really afraid and have no control over the outcome. Next weekend I am planning to spend time with my sissy, that's if she feeling up to it... This is weird though because no matter what the big "C" is always looming.

      Tinya, just remeber NONE of us get out of this World ALIVE. Death is always looming for all of us.
      I hope this can keep everything in perspective for you but remeber you are still in shock and so is your sister. Give youself PERMISSION to go easy on yourself.

      Just reach out to her when you can without breaking down and let her know you love her. She likely understands but I felt hurt when my sister didn't call as often to cheer me up or say I am thinking of you. I know that they were busy and working when I was trying to make it though the days of chemo and when I did get to see them they were able to see that I was still the same person just living with a terrible new condition. Be strong she is likely feeling lost too and may help you through it too.
