The plea of the selfish blogger

I'm a selfish blogger - I fully admit it. This blog is about me and normally its about me going about something bad or wrong in my life...

And I don't normally ask people things on my blog.

Not today.

An online friend of mine (not AdultFriendFinder) was in unexpectedly when I signed in tonight. She's waiting for a job offer, so I asked if she had heard and she said she hadn't. She asked if I had made up my mind on my job offer and I said I hadn't.

I asked how she was and she said she was OK.... and then she said she was sleepy, so I asked if she was really OK and she said she wasn't really, that her cancer has come back and that she was going in for treatment later in the week.

Treatment will be a mix of radiotherapy and chemotherapy.

What can you say? What would you say?

I said that I wanted to give her a hug - which is what I want to do. I asked if she wanted to talk or whether she needed to sleep.

She needed to sleep.

If you read this - do something for me.

Don't think about Toni - I'm going to do that.

Someone you know, or someone you care for, is not so well or not so happy. When you have a quiet moment, think about them and if you can - call them, mail them, write to them.

Let them know you care, and that they aren't on their own.

Sorry to hear about your friend. I'm sure she is having a rough time with it all right now. *hugs to you both*

As far as what should/could you say? Just let her know that you will be there for her and help her anyway you can. Whether to listen and be her sounding board, bring her soup *don't know how close you two are*, or help her to take her mind off of things at least she will know that you care.

The only thing you can do is be there for her when she needs you

Bye everyone, it was a blast
