Every time I think of my parents age

I start to panic. My mom is 85 and my dad is 88. I’m so scared that they won’t be around forever. I can’t imagine life without them. I’m sick with worry.

Feelings of anxiety about elderly aging parents is pretty normal. I know it’s difficult but try not to panic about it. Enjoy the time you have with them.

I see my elderly mom every week or two, to deliver her groceries to her house. I’m filled with anxiety whenever I visit her at her house in case I bring COVID-19 cooties with me from the store. I don’t even hug her because I’m worried she might catch something from me, and I try and stay 6- ft away from her. When I had to drive her to the eye doctor last week, I wore a mask in the car because of the close environment. Maybe I’m just being excessively cautious. I don’t know. :worried:
