We were given the crushing news that our mother has only weeks to live last Thursday. She's been amazing and fought this disease since 2003. I am overwhelmed with grief, I am finding it very hard to cope with being anywhere with people and have been experiencing panic attacks, nausea and dizziness. I am so angry too. These are all of the same feelings I had when my Father died very suddenly 15 years ago. Is it normal to feel this distraught, before death occurs? We've known since 2010 that her disease is terminal. I just can't stop crying. I try and be very cheerful and bright when I am with our Mama. Has anyone else had these feelings?
