3. I believe I've read that siblings are the closest genetically to one another.

Re thinking you might be dying:
As I've grown older I don't panic when a sharp pain near the heart leads me to think a blood clot might be going to my heart, or some such thought of the body going fatally awry.

Although I've lived many years I still have the will and a reason to live, as I believe my adult children benefit from my love and support for them.

Now that my daughter has suffered a stroke and is still in the recovery stage, I believe she, always more dependent than the others, will need and benefit from my love and support and presence.
I'm aware that one day I won't be there for her and the others, so will be there while I can.
