When someone you care about is seriously ill and may even die, it is natural to think about what your life would be like without that person. You may also experience feelings of loss and grief, even though the seriously ill person is still alive. This is called anticipatory grief. It is a normal process of trying to prepare yourself for the death of your friend or family member.
