What else can I do?
      08/04/05 12:55 AM

Hello Everyone
I need some help/suggestions. A woman I've know for the past 10 years is preparing herself for a battle. She was diagnosed HIV+/ HepC in 1986. We meet and dated for a couple of years, now were just very close friends. We're actually more than friends. I have always let her know that no matter what our situation is, she could and can always count me for anything. She still hasn't told her father or son about her medical problems. I've tried and tried to help her eliminate some of the stress in her life, but she always seems to do the opposite. In the next couple of months she'll have a liver biopsy and will probably start the interferon treatment for the HepC. I personally don't think she is strong enough to handle the treatment, but it's not up to me. Her doctors wanted to do the biopsy last year but for whatever reason she didn't. I know she's terrified. I really don't know what else I can do. Any and all suggestions would be helpfull.
