My wife and I meet with the “terminal illness” psychologist today. This was the hard reality session. He makes the point that there is an average time to death for my disease, and we should make plans with that in mind. Of course we should hope for the best, but don’t assume it. He stresses the need for wills, medical directives, powers of attorney, etc. Fortunately, we did that years ago, but decide we should review and update as necessary. He encourages us/me to come back to discuss what we/I plan to do in the time remaining to have purpose. Probably because of the ongoing nausea and heartburn, I need a break. My wife sees this and we decide to postpone any sessions for the time being.
