I lost my dad 3 years ago to cancer and have been processing my grief slowly since then. I recently joined a school support group which has been helpful. Recently though, my partner's father has been sick with cancer and I'm terrified. All the memories of hospital stays, unknowns, and my own early grief have been popping up in my mind. I love my partner and I fear the day he has to experience the grief I deal with everyday. Does anyone have advice on how to support someone who is grieving while you yourself are grieving? I seem to not be able to remember what I wanted or needed in the early times before and after my dad's death. I also don't know how to support myself around these triggering topics while supporting my partner. Thanks in advance
