Things are going a little better. I have new insight from talking an hour to a Hospice counselor who leads the caregiver support group I attend. I didn't really understand denial. He helped me to see that this is what my niece, nephew, and brother-in-law have been dealing with since the PSP diagnosis August 19, 2016. I told the counselor I felt I had not had any denial at all but just jumped into the diagnosis with all of my energy, trying to solve problems, help everyone cope, and felt the pain and grief immediately. The counselor said she is my sister--not my spouse or my parent. I don't live there 24/7. He said everybody handles these things differently--and if it had been my husband who'd gotten the diagnosis instead, I may have gone into the denial phase. I didn't completely grasp this before. It "shouldn't" be all about me anyway. I have been advised to get more balance in my life and not focus all my energy on my little sister. So, I'm trying to do things for me. My sister now has a Lifeline, a good walker, and volunteer drivers and meal preparers. Her husband has more grasp on what she needs. I'm very thankful that he now has accepted a grief counselor to help him deal with this. I'm sorry I really don't have a question to ask today. I just needed to say things were a little better even though my heart and our hearts are forever broken.
