Words of advice to would-be comforters:

"Things could be worse" is NOT comforting. Not even a little. If I'm feeling bad, hearing about how horrible it could be does not make me feel better about the current predicament.

I think I prefer non-verbal support. Be there for me, give me a blanket to cuddle with, maybe some hot chocolate, and leave me alone to read whatever book I'm drowning myself in. A simple "I'm here for you" will suffice.

And Megan, thanks for being here!
