I can imagine, though, how doomful that is to have had someone you once loved die of from complications of the same disease you've got. Poor Ben was probably counting the days. But he took such good care of himself.

That definitely shocked Ben out of his self-pity.

Just my opinion.
I can see that - sometimes it takes something to shock us and to make us realise what we still have, what we still have to fight for and to love and I see what you're saying - Michael doing this makes Ben go woah ok this guy is here for me and worth living for and loving right now and taking steroids doesn't help that or make me nice or any better than the healthy lifestyle he had already been living.

It's so nice. I'm proud of him for living his truth.

I don't remember anyone else saying that - what part did he play? I didn't watch it though so even if you tell me I don't know who it is

Well so far I saw him in episode 3 and it was a small part he played the father of a girl.

So far, I'm really liking Fiona's suggestion.
