I am very fortunate to still have both of my parents alive and well (they're 47 and 54), but I have such a tremendous fear of them dying...I always have. I am extremely close to both of them...they truly are my best friends, and I just can't imagine living without them. I feel as though when they die, I'll miss them so much that I'll just want to die myself. How do you prepare yourself for something like this? I'm scared I'll literally go crazy with grief. Even the thought of losing one of them makes me cry, and almost makes me panic. How do you deal with something like that?
I was 12 when my father died of a heartattche, so we never saw it coming. It was dec. 19, 1984 and my grandfather his dad died five days later from the same thing. So it was a double hit. I am now 37 and still miss him to this day, so be very glad you have had them this long. I do have memories not alot but some, he was in the army so he was gone alot. Just enjoy then while you can, I hate that he never got to see my 3 wounderful boys, or walk me down the isle at me wedding, but i know i will see him again one day. Dont waist time thinking about what and when it might happen enjoy then while you have them. They could live to be in their 90's you never know. Good luck, with learning how to handle this fear of something you have no power over.
