Friend caught in skiing accident. Please read.

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Feb 23, 2004.


  1. One of my friends, Heather Richardson, was in a ski accident during the course of last week. She has suffered a fracture skull and shoulder. I learned about it from the teachers today at school, and of course, they are very skimpy on the details. She wasn't my closest friend, and neither was I to her. But we were friends. We were in the same karate class together for 7 years. This is really hard on me. Whats harder is that her best friend, who's one of my friends (at least I think. We fight almost all the time.) doesn't believe that I care for her. She thinks I just want to talk gossip, and thats not the case. She's also convinced men just don't care about emotions, and I'm pouring my heart out about this. I guess I'm rambling now, but I'm nearly reduced to tears over this. It's not that I thought it couldn't happen, its more of how it hit someone so close to me. So please, keep her in her prayers, or whatever sort of ritual you practice. :(

    Wow, dude, I'm sorry. That sucks. She's in my prayers though. Best wishes to her, yourself and anyone else it affected.
     
  4. I'm really sorry to hear that. I wish her all the best in her recovery. Anyone that knows you would also know that you care about Heather. Chances are that your mutual friend is just taking her frustration anger out on you. Don't even waste your breath on her - just keep focusing all your thoughts on Heather.

    Not cool. There have been several accidents at the ski resorts around here this year. I am always a bit concerned as my son heads up the slopes.

    Sorry to hear about your friend. I assume she wasn't wearing a helmet. They might not look cool on the slopes, but they should be required attire for skiing/snowboarding.
     
  12. wow, sorry to hear that, FF.

    as far as her "best friend" is concerned - screw em. they're not worth your time.

    now for heather, i hope she gets better asap. maybe you could go and see her at th hospital or something? :)

    gluck hope shes ok!
     
  13. Harsh, sorry about that. Hope she gets better soon.

    Hope your friend Heather has a speedy and complete recovery!

    As for the rest of them....what do they know....!
     
  15. Wishing a quick and complete recoverty to Heather. As for her friend, don't worry about it; talk to Heather and let HER know you care, don't worry about what one of her friends thinks.

    I hope she pulls through!

    But do me a favor.... and think about the reason I had blocked your IMs last year and your thoughts & comments & jokes about Maurice Gibb and his untimely passing.... maybe your insensitivity in the past is stopping her from giving you the details.

    just a thought :meh:
