I have known my ex husband for over 40 years and he is suffering terminal cancer.
He is much loved by our eldest grandchild who is unhappy with me at the moment
My ex and I only had one child and he and his family are not communicating with me although my ex requested that I visit him in hospital which I have been more than happy to do. We have been friends since I was 18. The family dont have any concept about this long term friendship.
I feel on my own and wish I could trade places with my ex to make my family feel better. I feel guilty that the loved family member is ill and I am not
How do I deal with this and how do I deal with my son and family
What can I tell my teenage grandaughter?
