How To Prepare Self When A Loved One Is On Deathbed?
« on: June 20, 2018, 04:22:39 AM »
It is not easy to prepare ourselves when our loved one is dying. How do we cope up with the emotional stress that this experience ensues? For me, I think it is harder to prepare self for this kind of sad event than grieving for someone who has passed away already.

I dont think we can really prepare.  No matter what, when they leave it is hard.
I hope you are writing this for future and not going thru it now.

If you're going through this right now, I'm so sorry. There's nothing that can really prepare us for the loss of a loved one. Take advantage of the time you have left with them. If there's something unspoken between the two of you, say it now. That kind of regret will stick with you, believe me. I don't know if you're religious, but turning to God has helped me in the past. My thoughts/prayers are with you.

I have to agree, there is no way you can prepare  yourself for someone dying even when you know they may not have but very little time left. You still feel the grief  that comes with it. I'm with the rest here and hope you are not going through this now, if so, you are in our prayers.

I kind of understand why you have that username. We humans try to mask our negative emotions with something positive for us not to feel really down. I'm also with the others here that I'm hoping you are not going through such experience as all of us don't like to experience that.

Thanks for the kind thoughts everyone. My grandmother is counting her days already. Her mind is still sharp but her body is really frail that she cannot walk anymore. In fact, she can no longer eat solids as she doesn't even have the strength to chew her own food.


I'm trying my best to remain positive and so I made that nickname.

I truly hope you are not facing this situation right now  If you are, I'm so sorry.

I agree with the others - I don't think you can ever truly prepare yourself for someone's death.  If you are religious, you might find some comfort in your Higher Power. 

You might want to consider joining a grief support group.  Some of them might help you cope with anticipatory grief before the death as well as the grief that follows the death of a loved one.  Learn on family and friends who are supportive and who will allow you to feel all of your emotions. 

The death of a loved one is an incredibly difficult situation to deal with - one that you should never have to face alone.
