Visiting Your Friend Who Has Been Diagnosed.

It’s important to note that sometimes people don’t want to have company because it feels so big to have to have people over. It feels too big if you don’t have that support system–no one to answer the door, offer a beverage, make small talk that you don’t feel like making etc…

HOWEVER, if you can be that support system for someone, you are a true friend and you will be helping a lot–even when it feels like you’re not. It is not ever required of you to be there for someone. This is an act of giving. If you can give an hour, then your friend who is ill can count on you to be that support for one hour.

Let them know. Show up. That’s all.
