I do not have MS and I am not sure if I should be asking for help.
My oldest friend is French.We have known each other for 25 years and I am close to all her family. She was diagnosed with MS about 18 years ago and had been working and driving until last year.
Her parents have just written and told me that she has had a very bad year, where she was close to death, and is now non responsive. I am sorry if I am not using the correct terminology. I don’t want to offend anybody. The last time she was so sick she stopped her parents for telling me until she was recovering. But now they know she will not improve.
More recently we would see each other about every two years and not always write much in between so it was not unusual for us to be out of touch. But now this has come as a shock and I don’t know how to help them or her.
Will she be aware or have I lost her? Should I visit or stay away? I am sorry. I don’t really know what I am asking. I am feeling a bit lost and I know this is selfish.
I am not sure this is the right forum. Can someone point me in the right direction? Sorry.
Thank you Jo
