Feeling guilty

Both my daughter, 30 years younger and my brother, 10 years younger, are struggling with some serious medical issues. And here I am, with this unearned good health, considering my age.
No point thinking of the stuff beyond mortals' control.
Keep doing the needful & be by their side whenever they need awaiting your time that will come when it is supposed to.

@sspec You're right, as usual. 馃

I felt something similar when my mom was critically ill. If I could give her my life so that she'd survive. As if it wasn't necessary for me to keep going if anything happened to her. It's tough. But, don't be guilty for what is beyond your control. On the contrary, being well enables you to take care of them. When they see you in good health it can lift their spirits. They want you to be okay, because they love you, too. I wish them both a speedy recovery & you continuous health. Hugs

@Asmae Thank you. That helps.

I understand how you feel, but your role is to be there for them, be the hand with the strength to pull them through. It is not easier than their struggles, just a different kind of trial. For whatever my prayers might be worth, you鈥檒l all be in them. 馃珎

@JustNik To me, they are worth a great deal. Thank you.
I really hope things get better for all of you. But please don't feel guilty.
@Mamapolo2016 I pray and may god bless you. 馃

I think they call that survivor's guilt...........

Think of it that way : at least you can help them better if you are in good health yourself

Shit happens! It doesn't necessarily run in your genes. Keep smiling and bless your good health.

This is a really bad thing to feel guilty about

It is lucky for everybody you are in good health

And I hope things improve for your family

@LightOnFire Just that while I know it wouldn't help if i was down too, it just seems wrong that I'm not running marathons, but I'm not in pain much and not looking down the barrel of cancer.
