Hi. I'm new to the site. My aunt has cancer in her abdomen & lives in Hungary. The doctors give her a few months to a year to live. I'm going to visit her soon, and the closer it gets to the trip, the more I want to cry. I'd like to get the crying out of my system before I get there, but I'm afraid I won't be able to stop. When I talk to her on the phone I am positive and tell her I'm praying for her, but my gut when I'm alone is like "my aunt is dying" and I can't shake it. She is 49 and I'm 32. She is like a kindred spirit, we can be 5 yrs. old and free. I want to have fun with her and be a 'rock' & not a 'weeping willow'. Any advice?
