Dear Haikusue:

My oldest and dearest friend has been battling her weight for years and has had many health problems because of it, including type 2 diabetes and severe joint problems. I am worried about her! I want her to be healthy and happy and I feel like the weight is holding her back.  She never dates, she stays home every weekend, and she is up all night on live journal. She has no life! I've tried to encourage her to eat better and get out an exercise, but she just tells me to mind my own business and stop acting like her mom. How can I help her without nagging her?

Dear Bestie:

Concern or judgment?

It's not for you to define

How her life is lived
