Some background info: I'm living Israel, and a childhood friend of mine (very close) have been diagnosed with AMN 2 years ago (at the age of 24).
We served together in the army, and he used to be very active, we used to walk hundreds of kilometres with heavy gear, play soccer and had a very active lifestyle.
But since he was diagnosed, his situation deteriorated quite rapidly. If two years ago he could run for a kilometre, and a year ago we were able to walk for a distance together - now walking for 200 meters is a challenge, not to mention walking the stairs.
I'm sure you've been all go through those hard challenges,
but his state of mind got really bad, his 5 years girlfriend left him when he was diagnosed, and his confidence went very low, he's soon might leave university because he cannot focus at studies because of everything he's going through mentally.
He's afraid he will never find a girl because of what he has, which annoys him the most.
And I'm trying to think hard how to help him with that mentally, how can I raise his spirit?
I would appreciate any comment here, how do you deal with that.
