my friend’s good friend was diagnosed with cancer. he has been in intensive care many times, and has gotten better. but yesterday she got a call from his little sister (who she babysits/hangs out with, the families are very close), and his sister said he was back in intensive care. today, she was informed that he is going to die. this boy is only 14, and he and my friend are extremely close. apparently he doesn’t even recognize any of his family or friends. i don’t know how to help my friend during this difficult time…yesterday we talked and she is extremely depressed.
my other best friend told me that for now, we can’t have any drama having to do with us. we have to be strong and not focus on ourselves and our own pain anymore. but i can’t just turn off my pain, stop SIing, i can’t just automatically become this strong person who’s going to take care of everyone. i don’t know how…
