    I have supported friends by just simply being there for them, telling them that I care about and reminded them of who they really are. I have texted quotes or positive messages of encouragement to them. I have invited them out again for an outing, even after they said no to a previous invitation. I let them be where they choose to be, but do not give up on them. I recognize the negativity as part of the disease and not my friend.
