Selfish Rant

3 Oct

I have spent the last week terribly sick.  I have either the worst cold in the history of the planet or pneumonia.  Unfortunately, I cannot go to the doctor to find out, so I am just resting and trying to get better with OTC drugs.

But being sick has made me realize something.

I have always thought myself to have quite a few friends.  I have plenty of people who care about me.  But when it comes to the times when I need somebody here for me, I don’t have many friends.

I spent the last few days bedridden, sick and in pain.  I would have killed for somebody to bring me soup or come watch a movie with me.  I would have killed for somebody to ask me if I needed any cough medicine or juice.  But not a single friend did.  (Well, except for Tommie, whom was already planning to come to see me, and was nice enough to make me dinner last night.)

Now, I know I am complaining and probably seem self-centered.  Sobeit.  But I am just kinda frustrated.  All I wanted was a friend to offer to bring me some soup and watch a couple movies or something.  Because being curled up on the couch coughing my lung out for days on end gets kinda lonely.

    Did your other friends know you were sick? I’m sorry you’re feeling so awful and also so alone – I really hope you feel better soon! Thinking of you x
