I need advice and it kinda relates to this post.

I love my girlfriend very much. We were talking last night, and we got to the subject of death. She told me that she's sure she's going to die young. She said she can feel her body breaking down every day. That sometimes she wakes up and she can barely move. That breathing is getting more and more difficult every day. That sometimes she can barely make it up the stairs without her legs giving out. I love her very much, and it kills me to know that she's in that much pain. Her inhaler doesn't help the breathing, and she refuses to take pain meds (which I understand because I'm the same way). She said that even sometimes when we're doing stuff, it hurts her quite a bit. She swears that she still loves it, and that she really does not want me to stop, but I guess I'm just not sure if I can hurt her with a clean conscious. How can I make her feel better? How can I deal with the fact that if we do stay together for a long time, that it's likely that she'll die first? I've been thinking about it all day and I just don't know what to do.

Dude go back to the doctor and aske them to check her immune system. This **** sounds like some sort leukemia or cancer stuff. Take her back and figure stuff out then.

She said she's been like this since she was in 6th grade, and we're Seniors in high school. So I'd be surprised if it was that. But I am still going to eventually try to encourage her to go back to the doctors. She says it runs in her family, which is the reason she's not worried, but it hurts me to know she's dealing with that.

Has she been to the doctor to find out what's going on? This sounds serious.

Yeah. They didn't find anything.

Could be placebo, see if you cant do anything about that.

everyone in her family has it so she thinks herself into having it aswell
its a mind sickness
"if you think you have a headache, you'll get one"

I don't really know how I could tell her that. Besides, the fact that everyone in her family has it makes it likely that she also has it. Not saying you're wrong, I just... idk

maybe she is just a hypochondriac and depressed. Be there for her, love her, and encourage her to seek medical help.

Might be an allergy or something immune related. I suppose it oculd just be psychosomatic as well.

The hypochondriac/depression thing is a possibility. I'll keep the others in mind when I try to convince her to go to a doctor later on. She's scared of doctors though, due to a few near-death experiences in hospitals on procedures that should have been relatively routine.

It's hard to watch someone you love suffer, but I think it would be harder for both of you if you didn't stay with her. Also, if she says that it hurts, but she still wants to fool around with you, then I think you can set aside your conscience. This is what she wants, pain or not.

I know. I'm going to stay with her, but in any case, idk if that's something I can push from my mind. It's just not really in me to knowingly cause someone pain, especially if they're someone I love.
