I have had some boughts of high anxiety and fear for some reason it has taken a hold of me at times. I wonder if anyone else has that when they are watching a loved one in their last days on this earth. I have cried. I have taken walks. I have been hot all over my body and I know that is a stress response. Lord help us all of us who are there to the bittersweet end of our loved ones life. The pain in the chest is so hard. I wish I could make it go away. Thank you to all that answer and send hugs. Your words are so comforting and the love in this site is the greatest. Blessings.
