So, my grandma doesn't have a lot of time left. She can't really eat anymore and she can't see. The cancer has eaten away at her, sapped the strength out of her and we all kinda know what waits around the corner.
I don't really have anyone to talk about it with other than my boyfriend, but I try to keep it all in because whenever I do brush the subject and try to seek support, he just repeats the same platitudes like, "it's hard when family is ill" and "people move on" etc. And it makes me want to eat my own words and never talk about it ever again.
It actually makes me regret seeking his support.
My grandma isn't old, she's way too yyoung to be passing now. She's not an 80 year old lady in a rocking chair. She used to swim, walk miles and paint. But over the past year, the cancer has taken away all that. And it's hurting my entire family and my mom is very broken about it.
Is it just me being overly emotional? Should I stop seeking support from him?

It's natural to be upset. Be upset for as long as you need to be. It is a part of healing from pain. However, you should spend as much time with your grandmum as you can. Till date, the thing I regret the most was not spending enough time with my granddad, when fell ill and died last year. Not being sad when your grandparents are dying is not being 'strong'... It's being a coward.1

He either is not able, know how or wants to provide support. Seek out support groups.
I'm sorry to hear this.0
