Kinda long but I'll try to keep it short. I have a friend who I have been friends with for about 10 years now and throughout highschool. She got into a car accident last year and she cannot do things on her own anymore. She needs her family to help her, I've tried helping her a few times but she won't let me! She gets angry, upset and she doesn't even like to talk to me anymore. I feel sad because I miss her so much and she will never be the same. My other friends are also calling me a bad friend for not going there lately but it's because she doesn't want to see me. She rather be alone and I don't know why! How can I explain this to the rest of my friends who think I'm trying to avoid her? I would help her if she would let me..Answer Question
I would get all the friends together and everyone go over kinda like a intervention and sit her down and tell her you all love her just the same and not to be ashamed it was not her fault she is still the same person inside she probably fells she burdens everyone I hope everything works out for her

You are a dear friend to want to help her. Tell the others just what you have told us, that you want desperately to help but at this time she won't let you. She may not want for you to see her in this condition. As time goes on, when she is used to being like this, then maybe she will at least welcome the company. For right now you must respect her wishes. She has so little control over her own life right now, that for her to exert a little control about people visiting or not, is very important to her. It may come across as being angry, and it is partially, anger that this has happened to her, but partly it is asserting herself- having a tiny bit of control in a life that she no longer controls.
