When You Just Can't Help

Recommended Posts

I'm used to trying to help people get rid of their problems, but I'm afraid I've come across a problem I just can't fix. My friend from work told me he's HIV positive. I guess all I can really do is continue to be his friend. It's a shame I can't do anymore. Life sucks sometimes.:(

. . yeah, I find myself in the same position . . being so used to having the right answers for others when they need and then hitting a brick wall with the shit that you can't say anything really about . . . I actually am in a situation sorta like that now with a close friend . . . Its not nearly the magnitude of what your friend is gonna go through, but its the same type of incurable pain that no matter how hard you search, you can't find anything to soothe it with . . .

These things happen, but believe it or not, the fact that you still remain their friend despite these life-changing experiences, they will treasure the friendship that much more.

We're not god, but we can be there for them and help them when they need it :)

Wow, sorry to hear that. :( But even in a situation such as this, you're not completely powerless- you are only limited. While you can't do anything about his disease, you can still be there to support him and help him get on with his life.

Tony Im sorry...dealing with any terminal illness as a friend or family member is ahrd. My advice to you is to continue to show support and consideration as a friend. At times like that I bet he feels like he is completely alone. Make sure he knows that he's not;)
