The most stressful thing in my life right now is that my friend is hurt. I think I may have too much empathy for my friends. Last week my friend was hit by a truck as he skateboarded to school. He is now in the hospital with a fractured skull, a collapsed lung, and two broken legs. Because he can hardly open his eyes and talk, I can’t even visit him. I am “dealing” with this by constantly checking in with his mom, making meals for his family, and crying a lot.
