People ask me if I pray and I say yes. At night I pray that I don’t wake up in the morning and in the morning I pray this is my last day on earth. Sorry but you asked. I know there are people worse off than I am but enough already.
I’m the kind of man that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says oh crap he’s up shirt
I really needed to see this. I’m in that tough spot now, and sometimes I think what would happen to him without me? I pray things can get better, but I’m stress to the limit trying to help him and remind him of important life responsibilities and also to work towards his recovery, it feels like I’m now in such a negative spot in myself. I really hope if it doesn’t turn around soon because I don’t think he understands what this has done to me, I hope I can be strong enough to walk away and not feel guilty or sad thinking if he is okay. I’m the kind of man that when my feet hit the floor each morning the devil says oh crap he’s up. At the same token, it is ok to not be ok. The mentality that people should look for someone worse off to make themselves feel better is honestly in itself heartbreaking.

If someone is in excruciating pain or battling a major illness it is exhausting to have people constantly tell them it could be worse, stop complaining. I guarantee you it is not helpful and does not ease the pain. Rather it would be kinder to say “that must be difficult. Is there anything I can do to help?” If they respond with no, then simply be there for support and offer to listen if they want to talk or just be there. Thank you for putting it so succinctly. Going into my third week in the hospital so it was good to hear that. People mean well of course and many feel helpless so try to be encouraging but it can indeed get wearing. It needs to be acknowledged and made ok for people to just say. I’m not ok and that’s ok!!\
