    as you can't relieve your friend's financial distress or his wife's medical situation (I feel so bad for them all), it still makes a huge difference to have someone who will listen, not judge, and care. It doesn't solve the problem, but it makes bearing the burden a bit less trying. It also means that your friend knows that he's not alone (and as a long-term unemployed person who has a number of friends who just don't get it, I can attest that sometimes, that's enough.)

    Believe me, you're helping even if you're not able to actually alleviate the situation.

    Knit, purl, or get out of the way!
