How to help?? - October 21st 2012, 11:38 PM

Is there a different way of helping someone through depression besides just constantly letting them know you are there for them and you love them?

There's a guy I'm friends with and he's had it pretty rough. His parents are divorcing. They went bankrupt and lost their house and everything. Hes been sick for months and no one knows why, they ruled out cancer though. (THANK GOD) And on top of it all hes going blind due to a heredity thing. He can't even see to do his schoolwork very well.

I love him as a friend and I hate seeing him like this. He likes that I care and randomly show up at his house for no reason. He likes when I decide to bake for his family and such. But he's still just really down.. Any advice on how to help him?

If he's going blind, help him see enough beauty to last him a lifetime. If he's sick, help him feel like he's not. Every moment he is with you, make it into a fun memory.

No matter what, I am here for you.
