I Had a Rough Weekend. But I Have Really Great Friends.

You can read about why the weekend sucked here.

I just want to say that even through my I-can't-take-this-anymore-please-God-make-it-stop moments of this weekend, I was still feeling very blessed and looked after and taken care of because I have two very good friends at law school who stepped up and were friends in every sense of the word, showing, frankly, reckless disregard for their own health and wellbeing since they showed up at my apartment bearing supplies, support and offers to do anything I needed.

Ashleigh showed up at 11:00 pm with Gatorade and Saltines and emailed a professor for me to get me an extension on a paper due tomorrow. Heather was here the next day with Pedialyte popsicles, soup, and ice, and then made another run late that night to a 24 hour pharmacy to pick up my prescription. And they offered and were willing to do three times that if I hadn't been afraid of getting them sick, despite having their own finals to prepare for and papers to write. Plus, don't even get me started on the countless text messages, phone calls, and what can I do's. Thank you, thank you, thank you. It sucks being sick. And it sucks even more when you're 2000 miles away from your mom. But if feels really good to know you have really great friends.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate you both and how grateful I am that I found you here.

And don't you worry, should you start vomiting too, I have plenty of left over Pedialyte popsicles and prescription suppositories with your names on them. I will rush them right over. You're welcome.

I must say, in times of sorrow we know who our true friends are; how good of you to recognize the blessing in your pain.
