Susan - thanks for explaining anticipatory grief. In two words you've summed up what I've been experiencing over the last year, since we learnt my husband's cancer couldn't be cured. Sometimes I feel so guilty for finding myself thinking about what will happen in the future. Your advice to give yourself permission to look after yourself is really true - I've found it gives me the energy/resolve to be strong for my husband, myself and our family on most days, and helps me accept there will be other days when it's ok to have a good cry.
