I'm going to my Aunt's funeral Tue and Wed this week. My Aunt was 85. She was diagnosed with inoperable Stage IV crc about six months ago. Her passing this quickly was a bit of a shock to me. I am also Stage IV crc, diagnosed in May 2012 (about three months before my Aunt). I'm younger than she was (49 years old) but I am dealing with the same afliction that overcame her.
In addition to greiving my favorite Aunt's passing I have anxiety about going to her funeral given the crc connection to her.
I don't know why I'm nervous. I think I'm simply afraid of the emotions I may experience. Not just my emotions but my family member's emotions as well.
Keep me in your prayers.
Love to you all,
ps. picture is me and my Aunt
