I can hug, I can kiss, I can touch, caress and shush, but I cannot comfort a terminally ill person! I always feel useless because I can't take away their pain! I want to help, I want to make a difference, but what am I to do!
My friend has MS, I can't help her, and one day she'll die a slow and miserable death. What do I do to help her get through episodes? How should I act like she's going to be ok when my heart breaks over and over because I know she wouldn't? And as selfish as I am, how can I make it easier on me! I am a very bad friend, I could never cause comfort and I'm only capable of inflicting pain, so why do they keep coming back!
