Default Lost a friend who helped me deal with my chronic illness

I lost a friend who helped me deal with my chronic illness (rsd aka reflex sympathetic dystrophy). He also happened to be my psychiatrist who passed away last wednesday from a rare chronic stem cell disease. He tried for 14 months to beat it but just couldn't fight it any longer. I feel so sad and lost without him. He has helped me since I was first diagnosed with my rare illness and I don't know how I am going to find another doctor who will understand what I am going through. He did understand and I will miss him very much. My heart and prayers go out to his wife and family. I feel so badly for them most of all. I just needed to talk a little. I've been so down since it happened and still haven't been able to grasp the reality of it all. It just happened so fast. Thank you for listening. I know I can always count on my NT family for compassion and support.

RSD,
So sorry for the loss of someone who really appeared to be very compassionate and caring. Sad.

Pray you will again soon get another doctor to guide and give you the strength needed to cope with all you are dealing with.

I understand how important a good friend can be to hang out with us who suffer chronic pain. I too lost my best friend who made life more bearable and could hang out no matter how down and out I felt. I pray that you and I may find another empathetic soul to lighten your/our load.
