Honestly there are two friends in my life who have terrible luck with this. They both seem to have issues stemming from health related problems. But the health problems aren't even related.
It just doesn't seem right.
I spent 4 hours today driving a friend back and forth to a specialist (and waiting during her appointments), because she couldn't take herself. She is single and has no family nearby. She fell and hurt her arm/wrist and found out today that it's much worse than originally thought.
She was scheduled to have surgery on Thursday already (completely unrelated female issue). Then Sunday she fell. Monday she went to the doctor to have her arm checked. He referred her to another. They decided she needs surgery on this.
I can't tell you how bad I feel for her. She will have to be off work for 8 weeks or so. She can't drive during that time either.
I will help her as much as I can. I know that she has plenty of other people/friends in her life that will support and help her too.
But still...why do these things happen over and over to the same people. Like she hasn't been through enough lately (so much more going on too that I won't get into).
