If you were dying, would you want you to visit?
My mother-in-law is dying and I'm not sure if I should go visit her. I mean, we're not close. I've been more of a caregiver than a friend or family member. If I drove all the way to the hospital (which is about 1/2 an hour away), I don't know what I'd say. What do you say to someone who's dying? Sorry you're dying? And I don't know that she would really want me there for more than a few minutes. So I'd drive 1/2 an hour to spend a few minutes with her?
My wife is with her, and her sons will be there later. I really don't know what to do.
Loneliness is not about being alone; it's about not feeling connected.
