Several people on my friends' list are going through rough times. I wish I could do something more than tell them I'm sorry or giving cyberhugs. I once had a convesation about how you can truly have a friendship with someone online, when you've never met. I said the feelings are just as strong as those for RL friends.
The nurturing side comes out and I just want to wrap my arms around them and make the pain go away. Unfortunately, I feel helpless.
They are in my thoughts regardless of whether I can be there or not.
