How Do You Make a Friend Who is Ill Feel Better?
- Potential Murderers -- How Do You Know If You Live Next To Them?
If society is becoming more and more vulnerable to these mass murderers, we need to know in advance where these potential killers are, and who or what might be the next target for their evilness. We discuss an insightful approach on the subject.
When you have a friend who is really in bad shape, we know for sure that he/she is having a depression as well. How can we help this friend, knowing that his/her illness is causing us harm too?
Having been there, we can start suggesting these practical tips:
CHECK THEIR MENTAL STATE
By now, you know for sure that physically and mentally your friend is in real state of shock. If you know your friend very well, then you know what words to say and which ones avoid . If she/he was a close friend, try to think from good memories from the past. This way you are activating or reactivating certain areas of her/his brain. Smiles give great results.
IF YOU CAN, GET A PUPPY INVOLVED
Or a pet, or maybe a little chihuahua. Your friend will feel better when you get a puppy around. Why? In a split of a second, part of those memories from the past will come forward: no worries, free time and enough fun.
BECAUSE YOU KNOW HER/HIS STATE OF MIND
Bring or print some humorous jokes from the net. There are so many to chose from. Just be careful with the political or religious ones.
CHEER UP AND GIVE THEM LOVE
How? Have you ever thought of a nice handwritten poem of yours? Or maybe from a child of your? attached to the 'Get well' Balloon? However, you know better that us those swing moods; What does he/she really loves: A book? A portable DVD? Those old pictures from school? A sign Hallmark card from friends?
GET INVOLVED WITH HIS/HER WORRIES
Maybe the bills are behind, or his/her family needs help. Just let them feel special. Do their kids need a ride to school? Just make a list with your friend. Show them how far you want to go. A big load will be taken away by approaching these everyday issues.
PRAY WITH YOUR FRIEND...
Or pray on your own for his/her wellness. We might be in their shoes one day. God forbids if we won't be able to be as strong as we are right now, writing these ideas from our hearts.
IF HE/SHE IS BEDRIDDEN AT THE HOSPITAL
Asks questions, and if you want to go deeper, check the medicines. Get a second opinion when you pay that pharmacist. I had a friend that was given the wrong medicine. He came to see me after four months and had lost 50 pounds. He told me he was going to sue. A year later... he was gone. His name? Joseph Malone.
