I'm glad to hear you'll get to just float in a pool and relax a bit.
I think a lot of people just don't know what to say or do, and yes, it's difficult to see someone that makes you think about your own mortality.
And some people don't think they're strong enough. Or they have other things going on in their life, and feel like it's "just too much" or they can't be supportive enough or something. I think sometimes they mean well but feel if they can't give more, they should just be quiet.
Whereas you would be quite happy to just have a simple relationship.
Eh, I don't know. Just wrambling. I'm sorry you're up late because you can't sleep because of pain.
