Here is the issue: I have several friends and family members that have become insane ever since Devin has gotten worse. They have been worried about his walk with the Lord and some keep sending us herbal solutions to his problems. Some of asked to have a healing ceremony. I can barely stand it and I find myself getting more and more rude about it.
My sister asked about his walk with the Lord and I asked her how her walk would be if she had 5 malignant brain tumors and you were dying while you had two small children. I also told her to lay off because Devin is very private and he does not need this right now. She did it anyway as did another friend. Devin is getting upset and he asked me last night why he was the only one afraid to die. I told him that it was easy to not be afraid when your back is not against the wall and death is not staring you in the face. I also told him that I thought people did it for their benefit and not his. They are so uncomfortable that they are saying that to help them deal with his situation. I just think that whether Devin has accepted Christ is his business and between him and God. Not him, God and anyone else.
So, with all that said, how do I get people to stop? My Gilda's group said not to touch it and let Devin deal with them. I am just getting very Momma Bear about it. He has started just rolling over and pretending he is asleep but he feels guilty afterwards.
