One sad story

I met Milica my first day at college. We were together in the group, and also a neighbors. For a very short time we became the best friends. Since we didn’t know many people in Belgrade and everything was totally new, two of us spent most of the time together. So, this is how I met Miljana.

Miljana was Milica’s relative. She was older then us, Law student. Absolutely fantastic girl! Funny, smart, wonderful! One of the best students. The most positive girl I have ever met. She showed us the town, introduced us with her friends, we went out together… From that time onwards she was like our older sister and best friend at the same time.

After some time she told me that she had a very difficult life. Her father had a drinking problems during her high school. He almost broke out their family. But she fought against it for years. She was talking about problems he made to her mother and younger brother, about his therapies…it was long and painfully…but despite that, she managed to study, to help her mother, to take after his brother… and she was always full of hope and believed in his recovering…

Two months ago she called me crying. She said that her father was very sick. He had cancer, and he was dying. But it wasn’t all. Just a couple weeks went by and they found out that her mother was sick too. They both were in the terminal stadium of illnesses. She was desperate, hopeless. She came back home, to take care of them. And we all were in shock!

Her father died first. It was a week ago and her mother died two days after, the day she graduated… She is still at home. We don’t know how to help her. Is there any way to help? She tells us that she is all right, she just need a time…
