my grandmother was diagnosed with bone cancer a while ago and we have been really close since she's lived with me my whole life and I know that when she does die, that I will be so incredibly sad that I just wont know what to do. When i even think of her dying or of death right now i get really sad and confused and scared and I just am so scared and worried and am going to be just all tore up inside. I just dont know what to do. Im about to cry just thinking about it.

omg...guess what- believe it or not- I know what u are going through- my uncle (which was like the father I never had), died of heart faliure (he didn't get a donor in time)...till this day, (this happened last March)...I'm still grieving/crying/confused as to why it happened to him of all ppl- but if your grandmother were to die, there's couseling (it didn't really work for me)...but it usually does- but jus enjoy the time that u get to have with her now, because it hurts even more, when u never had the chance to say "I love you", or something that u wanted to tell that person for so long, but jus never got the courage or time to do so...then you'll be even more sad when that time has "expired" (jus like me)

a lot of people seek solace in spirituality during times of grief. consider maybe attending a support group at church, or reading about bereavement. i know it's difficult to deal with the death of a loved one, but there are a lot of avenues to pursue.
