Hi, I've been struggling with whether to take a leave from work to be with my father during his last weeks/months. I need help with this decision because I know putting all your time into a very sick person is not always good for you. I thought work would be a nice distraction but now that I know the end is near I just want to be with him. I am just so sad and think about him during my work day. I don't know what to do.... the leave would be unpaid and depending how long I take I could manage financially. It's just a matter of if I would emotionally be okay being with him because I don't want to get depressed. And when I go see him or talk to him I get so sad.
