Don't know why I am so very sad

12 years ago

I just heard from my son that my ex is ill. We were divorced - not amicably - about 10 years ago. There has been a lot of water under that bridge.

But now I hear that my ex has spinal tumors, probably metastatic cancer, and I feel so sad about that. I would not want to live in the same state as this guy but I don't want him to have to go through anything like this. I wouldn't wish him pain or any of the other symptoms he has been having.

I don't want my children to have to see their father suffer either. As much as it makes me cringe when they go visit him, I would prefer that they do that to losing him.

Am I nuts?
