- Friend was DX
My boyfriend (who I live with) just got a sad call this morning. His father who was diagnosed with ALS a little over a year ago has passed early this morning in his sleep. This all happened so suddenly I can't even take it all in. My boyfriend just cried while I held him and now he is gone to go be with his mom. I'm just in a state of shock right now and I didn't even know what to say to my boyfriend except for I'm sorry and I love you. I just can't believe this has happened it's like it hasn't all sunk in yet. I knew his dad didn't have much time left but I didn't know it was going to be today. I knew his last doctor's appointment wasn't a good one but I never asked my boyfriend about it because I knew it upset him to talk about it. I just don't know what to do right now I can't go back to sleep because I hate knowing how upset my boyfriend is right now. Tomorrow is my birthday and I'm supposed to celebrate tonight and tomorrow and I don't even want to knowing how much pain my boyfriend is in. This is so awful and I just don't know how to deal with it. I know I should be here for my boyfriend but I just don't know what to do or what to say I couldn't even imagine if this had happened to my father. Please help I need some advice or just someone to talk to.
