A Sister's Struggle: Was She Heartless or Just Practical? 🤷‍♀️

A woman's sister is diagnosed with HIV, and she tries to comfort her with a practical approach, focusing on insurance and treatment. However, her sister and family find her reaction heartless, causing an emotional rift between them. The woman insists her response was based on logic, not hatred or resentment, and just wanted to help her sister. After some reflection, she apologizes to her sister and promises to be there for her during this difficult time. As the internet weighs in on the situation, some find her response cold, while others see it as a different way of showing support. What do you think? 🤔💔

"YTAH Are you for real? Your sister was just told she has a deadly disease, and you are saying, 'It won't kill you' to make a copay? What happens if she can't make a copay? What happens if she is treatment resistant? You are horrible. My friend died a couple of years ago because someone gave him HIV and was treatment resistant. You are gross." 💔

Choose empathy or step aside. Don't argue with suffering.
