Despair

Mom update

I visited Mom in the hospital yesterday. I'm not sure she is going to survive to Wednesday to go home. For a woman who fought weight issues all of her life, it is really difficult to see her as skin and bone; there is nothing left of her. She does not have the energy even to eat. I think her body is shutting down. Yesterday, she admitted to me that she is afraid. I did my best to calm her fears.

I don't want to turn this around and make it about me, but I'm having a very hard time coping with this. I have made an appointment to see my family doctor to obtain a referral back to my old psychiatrist. I just need a little extra help in dealing with this grief.
