Remaining Strong

My sister is in stage 4 lung cancer. Sometimes I find myself responding by withdrawing. Sometimes this withdrawal entails not answering the phone (when I know she’s calling), and calling her later. Other times it means cutting the phone conversation short. A friend asked how hard it is to have a conversation with another person. Sometimes it’s hard. I hope, that as this situation continues, I will be strong for her and for myself, as well.
