One of my friends is having lots of problems with her ongoing depression and stuff. Another friend was recently diagnosed with MS. It hurts that I don't have a magic wand to wave that can make them better. They're far away, so I can't even give them a hug, or sit and listen, or do *anything*.

I always feel the need to solve all the world's problems, and hurt that I can't. Is this normal, or do I just need to get a more realistic perspective on things?

It probably is normal.

It is normal. (Either that, or we're both abnormal.)

I'm feeling helpless with regard to our friend with MS as well. I'd love to DO something, but being far away and having to take a small child with me if I tried to travel make me feel pretty darn useless. Offering moral support and a willing ear is the best we can do right now, I think.

Now I feel bad that my friends feel bad...

Seriously, it's just good to know you're thinking of me. :)

Hey! You are *not* allowed to feel bad that we feel bad!
