Bad timing

Today, I just came out of a two-year long depression. I'm finally starting to feel normal, so of course I get a message that my grandmother might have less than a year to live. FML

It's great that you're feeling well! Now you can go to the park with grandma, play paintball with grandma, ride a boat with grandma, swim in cooked macaroni with grandma, play video games with grandma, have a mani-pedi with grandma, etc.

I commend you for coming out of your depression! don't let this hold you back. we will all die, eventually. and, as awful as this may sound, it's sometimes good to know approx. how much time you have left. the last time I saw my grandma, I was mad at her and didn't say I love you when I left. biggest mistake of my life. make a point to make this a positive in your life. do fun things with her and enjoy your time together ❤

@Yudith is absolutely right.

So get the most of that time with her! As a French author, Anne-Dauphine Julliand, who lost her children very early because of a grave decease wrote it: add life to the days when you can’t add days to a life.
And you never know what might happen. A French woman just wrote (in the French edition of Slate, perhaps it has been translated) how she spent her grandmother’s last days. Doctors told her she would die within a few days, at most weeks. She decided to take her grand-mother out of her nursing home and went on a tour of Europe with her in a camper van. Her grandma lived three more years and died with a smile on her face.
