Reply to "concerned caregiver"

Dear Mary:

Your situation, as is each of ours, is very unique. I can tell you are very attached to your dear friend. Yes, you need to see your doctor. You need to take care of yourself...

I started out this response by asking a lot of questions. I had to wonder what is wrong with your friend in a physical sense. It sounds very serious! However, I do imagine that he is mentally very sound. Have you discussed these things with him?

This is a very hard time for you. It may be, that your friend is not thriving any more. There are some things that we have to think about when health issues are as they are... Sixty-two pounds at 32 years-old man is a serious health problem. And losing weight on the top of that is worrisome... Don't you think his mother loves him?

Meanwhile, keep your thoughts in a journal to review when need be. There are so many things that make sense in a different light of a different day. In the meantime, breathe deep and try not to worry. We're here for you...

Love and Hugs from Glenda
