In brief: Difficult world....
When someone close is sick, communication between the healthy person and the sick person becomes strained, because the well-person feels the sick person is overburdened.
The best answer is to sit down and have a straight discussion over feelings. Do not the sick person take you on a guilt trip, for which you are not responsible.
