It's so frustrating to see a friend fall apart in front of you, and know that you can't really do anything to help. You can try to be there for them, and offer whatever assistance you can provide, but ultimately it's up to them to choose to accept it or not.
I am very scared that something is going to happen to a close friend of mine. She's already hurt herself and almost ended up in the hospital, finally refusing to go at the last minute. Yet there's nothing I can do. Such a horrible feeling of powerlessness.
I suppose there's no point to this musing. Just wanted to get my frustration off my chest.
