We've been friends for 21 years and I love her dearly. I feel bad even talking about her but she does something that bugs the h#ll out of me. And I don't know how to go about dealing with it. Every medical issue I've had she says she has the same thing. Every surgery I've had the focus became about her and how she needs a MRI too. But she hasn't had one since 2002. She's been prescribed PT and never does it. Tells me she has all the same problems but she's always worked, and goes to school full time. Never limped or walked with a cane or lost the use of her arms. Basically it's INSULTING! Saying she's the same minimalizes everything I've been through. I don't understand why she'd want to have my problems, are you kidding? I thought maybe it's just me and I'm too sensitive, she's really not doing that. So.. This summer a shoulder issue came up for me, bone spurs, torn rotator cuff and I started PT. My friend has never mentioned a shoulder problem before. I wondered how long it would be before she had it too. Well of course she does! I reached for something yesterday and it hurt my shoulder and it made a snapping noise. And she said she probably has the same problem I do. This is driving me nuts, I can't ever talk to her about my pain or difficulties. Her reply is always " Oh I know I ....I I I" I don't want to dump this friend and I don't know how to tell her nicely to stop it. She is so not there for me! Anyone else ever have the same problem? And how did you handle it? Sorry so long guys!
