I have a friend, her husband’s cancer seems to be escalating. I don’t know how else to say it. He had a successful surgery a year ago but now has some metastatic spots that seem to be popping up with a vengeance. It’s been a lot of bad news in a hurry.
It’s hard, things are moving fast and she’s of course overwhelmed and I think in denial.
She’s also a person who is not good at talking about “stuff”. I’m good with that. As our mutual friend told me, her journey is hers alone, you can’t be in her journey nor can you relate to it. Wise words.
Saying all this, how do you try and support a friend who’s life is spiraling?
I sent a nice text and I’m bringing over dinner.
Any suggestions for dinner? I’m terrible at this.
I feel like I’m failing as a friend. She’s a good friend but not one that I would reach out to all the time.
