My FriendMy friend was diagnosed with MS about 8 years ago. About 6 years ago he moved away. We kept in touch a little, but not as much as friends in the same town do. Last year my friend visited for a wedding. He couldn't walk very well and was very tired. I have had some heartbreaking things happen to the people i love, but this cut me deep. The person afflicted WITH ms HAD always been the strongest of our group and most athletic. I want to help this person, but don't know what to do such a distance away from him. I recently found out he is highly depressed and doesn't believe he will ever have a relationship with someone due to his condition.
What should I tell him to do? Reach out to MS chat groups. Try and motivate him to accept his situation and work with it?
I am frustrated because this person was there for me when I had something tragic happen in my life, but I feel helpless now for him.
