Today my best friend called me to tell me that she has got colon cancer and it is incurable.Noone knows how she got this..but she was just to healthy..now i have a question...what do I do? She is in New York and I am in seattle.I try to call her everyday to cheer her up..but my best friend is dying and since 1999 I have lost several people whom I loved and needed.The death of Brad on 5/22/09 is still haunting me.My boyfriend Brad committed suicide.i found his body which was in the yard at our rental home and it will be 4 months and I am still in trauma.Brad left me with limited funds and no money really and I am on really shaky ground.We sold the motorcycle and cars to pay for the funeral...what was left over...was given to me.I still have enough to last me for quite some time..but with this of my best friend...I am in a very bad depression.Today i cried.I really cried.How can i be strong? Why is this happening? As for colon cancer...do you know that there are not any systoms.It is a silent killer and to all women and men over 50.......please watch your diet.Dont drink nor smoke..but get tested which is what i am going to do on Monday.This may sound like rambling but what can I do? How do I cope with a dying friend? Who do I talk to? There are no support groups that I can go to? If your best friend tells you tht she is dying and wont last until next year...what would you do? Please help me...vader.
