So I have a friend who's suffering from a condition known as cirrhosis that will likely take their life anytime between several months from now and several years from now.
The thing is, this condition, unlike for example, late-stage cancer, isn't an unavoidable death knell; with the right procedures, this condition can be very much treated, if not outright cured.
But unfortunately, this friend of mine cannot afford these treatments any longer, and absolutely refuses most forms of help from others, especially money based help, simply because they think that taking other people's money to make their life better is being selfish, and that taking what they can't give back is against their moral code.
Worse still is that they've had a pretty miserable life overall (to the point that their miserableness had led to their condition), and they insist that their life would continue to be awful without this condition. In other words, I feel they're basically trying to commit "suicide by inaction".
I really don't want to lose them, and I feel more powerless than ever. Is there anything whatsoever I can do to get them the help they need?
