Q: For many years, I took care of my disabled sister (she had severe cerebral palsy), and while I also had a job, I did almost everything for her. But a few months ago, she died peacefully in her sleep, and now I feel depressed and absolutely useless. How will God get me out of this? — D.L.
A: I’m sorry for your loss. You should be commended for your devotion to your sister. You were probably a big comfort to her and other members of your family. If you would like to use your free time in a more productive manner, you could use the skills you developed helping your sister by volunteering at a local hospital or hospice. Alternatively, you could perform some other type of volunteer work, take some courses at a community college, or investigate a new hobby.
