I was suppose to go to the zoo. Instead, I went to the hospital. My friend was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer on Thursday. They think it has spread to her liver and her stomach as well. I went up there to visit her to see how she's doing. My old workplace doesn't give a rats ass. She called them on Wednesday and told them she thought she was having a heart attack and that she couldn't work. They said "so you'll be in at 8:30 tomorrow morning then?" Again, she tried to explain that uh..heart attack means not working. They said everyone has been really sick around there and that it wouldn't be fair for her to take time off work. That was no excuse to miss, so see you on Thursday morning at 8:30 and they hung up.

They disgust me.

She called 911 and was taken in that night. Her heart is fine, thankfully. It's everything else that needs fixing. I got so upset after visiting her that when I picked up my lunch on the way home, I took one look at it, saw the order was wrong and just threw all the food and everything out the window of my car while I was driving and crying. I was just so angry. I threw it all out and went home.

I'm taking her up to our old workplace next Friday so she can pick up her things and get out of there.

People disgust me.

I am so sorry to hear that, darling. I'm glad you're there to support your friend. Remember that - even when some people are utter unfeeling assholes, you are there to counteract it. Do take care of yourself, first and foremost, and take care of your friend.

All the love. ♥

<3. I don't know how much good I'll be at balancing out the crap. I'm pretty wobbly under normal circumstances, let alone in situations as serious as this. I'll do my best though

Lord. :| Well, thank goodness she is getting out of there, and that you already are.

And, I totally agree with what Lindsey said. You're an amazing person, and an awesome friend to have. She's lucky to have you to cheerlead and support her, even with all the crap.

They are asshats. They just brushed her off when they finally broke the news. And I think you give me far too much credit, I'm terrible at this stuff, but I'll try. Hope things are well with you.

I'm terrible at this stuff

You are really, really, not. You are one of the most loyal, generous and reliable people I know. And I am definitely not just saying that, it's the truth!

Things are alright here.. I miss the old days of chatting to you & watchin Bollywood clips on YouTube. D: Damn this employment lark.

(Though! I heard Hrithik Roshan is a judge on some Indian dance show "Just Dance", and I thought of you. XD)
