So say you have this friend who’s always had a lot of problems.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Say you have a friend who’s in her mid to late twenties who still lives with her mother and still can’t drive a car.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Say your friend who’s always been sick now tells you that she’s been having seizures and is forgetting things that happen.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She even forgets the last few times she talked to you.
She tells you her hours were cut down at work because she’s has so much trouble functioning.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She also tells you she can’t take a shower alone in case she has a seizure and that her doctors aren’t helping other than giving her medication.
Then she says, while crying, she can’t do this anymore.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She says she’s a burden to everyone and wants to give up.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â She’s tired of fighting and is too unhappy to bother anymore.
You tell her she needs to do whatever she can do to make it through this and get the help she needs.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You tell her she’s strong and you know things will eventually get better.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â You wish you could do more…
You are also afraid how much you can handle this but afraid to not do anything either.
