re: helping a friend

HI Megan... i know what you're going through, having out my friends through similar probably far too many times. (I'm 24/f with spastic diplegic CP, have my BA, former world-class equestrian (honestly!)... ). feel free to email me if you want some more insider's perspective on all this-- i could easily write a small novel and not begin to cover all the minutia of the dynamics you probably know so well. meantime, keep smiling, and just remember that you can only do so much for someone else-- try not to carry his world on your shoulders, it gets heavy :)
