A friend is terminally ill?

I watched my father die slowly from M.S. It was more than I could bare.

And although he's gone and out of pain, I find I can't be around sick people as easily as I used too. I lost another friend to Hep

B a few years back, she went hard. I don't think I can do it again. I feel terrible because all I want to do is run. But my conscience won't let me.

    Sab is delusional.

    The old testament (aka. the real bible) states that eating shrimp and wearing polyester is as bad as being gay and that the Sun rotates around the Earth - Glorified Stupidity.

    It's natural for you to want to run away. It's a painful experience and it must feel like such a weight on you that's making you depressed. It's natural but I think he/she'd want you to be there for her and I'm sure she'd be there for you if you needed someone. Depend on friends outside to support you when you're feeling down so you can support your friend. It's okay to feel like this. It's normal. If it gets to be too much you can take a break. Friends understand. You're there to be there for her and brighten her day and she doesn't expect you to be there all the time. I'd be grateful to have a friend come to brighten my day if I was terminally ill and I certainly wouldn't expect her to stay the whole time; that would make me feel guilty.

    I have a lot of friends who are terminally ill, it is hard at times but put yourself in there shoes. How would you feel if you got sick and all of the sudden your friends and family didn't want to be around you anymore?

    Have you ever read the book "The Four Agreements"? I highly suggest it. It's awesome and I think will hopefully help you with this as well as many other things in life and how to go about them. I know it did for me.
