Feeling helpless

My grandma was diagnosed with terminal lung and has just been told she has days maximum weeks to live and I'm struggling to cope. I know my grandma has had a good long life but to see her struggling and in pain every day makes me so angry that such a lovely person has to endure this. We are respecting her wishes to let her stay at home but trying to be there for her both physically and emotionally  is breaking my family down. I feel angry, sad, scared and alone even though I have my family around me  I know there is worse to come. I really feel for anyone going through this as it's the hardest thing I've had to go through in my life by far,

Hi Nicky, I am so sorry to hear about your grandma. Cancer is such a horrible thing and watching someone you love so dearly going through it really is hell. 

I am currently at the start of this journey with my father, he has a different type of cancer, however I am sure when this time comes for us we will all feel angry, sad, scared, alone and confused, and it's hard, it's really hard. 

I'm very sorry that i cannot offer any advice, but I wanted to reply to say that here is a good place to express your emotions, and that if you have questions, fears or need someone to talk to, this group is here for you. During these tough times we have to support and look out for one another.
