  • 2) You're grappling with your own mortality.

    Taking care of someone who's sick inevitably brings up questions like What happens if my mother/father/sister/aunt doesn't get better? Will the same thing happen to me one day? and Who will take care of me? As normal as these thoughts are, they're also upsetting. To help you work through them, keep a journal for writing down your thoughts and fears daily or every few days. This can help you realize that you're nowhere near being in your loved one's shoes. Doing things you're enthusiastic and passionate about and being present in the moment, such as taking extra time to enjoy your morning coffee—how it smells and tastes—also helps draw a contrast between the two situations and reinforces the fact that you're in a very different stage of life.
