oh wow. I think the first thing you have to understand is we aren't sad. We're not going to sit around and cry all the time. We aren't lazy. We have times we just can't find the energy to move. Sometimes we get angry for no good reason. Sometimes we just don't show any feelings. We will have to take medication for most of our lives, because we have a chemical imbalance. Its no different then a diabetic needing insulin for their whole lives. The best thing you can do is understand there is a physical problem that we didn't ask for, telling us to buck up isn't going to help. Encourage efforts that are made with praise. Be sure they know you love them and care what happens to them.
The beset thing to do is schedule an appointment with a parapsychologist for yourself, I say para because they charge less and are fully capable to help you with this.
Aside from learning what to do for your friend, you'll also learn what to do for yourself to remain positive and model hope for your friend.
Best to you. Keep me posted.
