Members aviaticsquad Posted July 30, 2012 Members Report Share Posted July 30, 2012 Hi all,I'm at a loss for what to do and I would love some advice from folks who have been through or are going through this as well. My best friend's brain cancer has very suddenly taken a turn for the worse and they have stopped treatment for her. We're both in our early twenties. She has very little time left. I am flying to see her in two days and get to say goodbye. I am so scared and feeling completely at a loss. So, a few questions:1. Any tips for how to emotionally and mentally prepare for this? I've dealt with death of friends before, but its always just sprung on me - I've never had this foreknowledge of it. It's blowing my mind.2. When I actually see her, how should I behave? Some people are telling me that when I'm with her, I need to be strong for her to comfort her. Others are saying I should just share myself fully, what I'm truly feeling, and connect with her in that way. I don't know how to "be myself" anymore, it's not that simple. Any advice?Thank you.
