So my best friend of 16 years ended up in the hospital today. For years he has failed to take his health seriously. He works a desk job and all of his hobbies are computer based so he uses that as an excuse to never exercise. He hates his wife's cooking so he always eats fast food. He has had a bad knee and ankle for well over 5 years because of lack of exercise they can't support his weight. His work is only 1 mile from the train that gets him home but he takes a cab every day because his knees hurt too much. He's 27 and when forced to take stairs he double steps each one!
Well today he collapsed in pain and was taken to an emergency room on the other side of the city from me. And all I can think of is that I hope this is a wake up call to take better care of himself! Maybe I'm cruel for thinking that. But he has done this to himself despite my relentless invites to cooking classes, and walking activities.
Maybe I'm a bad friend
