Her lungs have been filling with some fluid, she's been vomiting up fecal matter, she's in constant pain, even after the maximum amount of painkillers (without just killing her) have been given. She's always been so tough, able to overcome any illness, except this one. She isn't expected to make it through the night.

I feel surprisingly cold to the whole situation. Deaths just don't seem to get to me like they should. Everyone else in the family have been mentioning how bad they feel for the negative thoughts they have had about her, and often have spoken out loud, but I don't feel any such thing. Though I do not dislike the woman, though she has been fairly generous and kind to me for my entire life, I can not deny the fact that she is/was not the most pleasant woman. When I have truly needed it, she has almost always been there for me. Yet I feel nothing for her death. No sadness, no happiness, nothing. And this is not the first time that a death of someone close in my family has failed to bring about any emotional change in me noticeable either by myself or others around me.

I've been told that this is not normal.

[COLOR=orange]Electrical shock therapy would fix Grandmother's ills easily. It is all a question of, "Do YOU want her cured?" If so, then I will be more than happy to administer the treatments myself. :nodding:[/COLOR]

Probably easier though.

Because I didn't think it was really worth posting anywhere else.

I'd say it is, though your emotional disconnect would probably say otherwise.

That's not particularly unusual. There came a point for me where unless it's someone incredibly close to me, it doesn't affect me all that much anymore. To be honest I'm quite glad of this, because it does make it a hell of a lot easier.

I'm in the same boat here. My dutch grandmother of 80+ years is now likely to be placed in a nursing home after contracting pneumonia and falling. A month earlier, she fell, broke her wrist, and gave herself a nasty rash.

Normally, death doesn't bug me either, but I know I'm going to really miss her when she's gone, and right now I think it'll be a miracle if she lives past new years 2012.
