What really gets me about this whole thing is that nobody but me helped her when she fell. Nobody! The teacher had to deal with two boys who were causing a huge distraction, and didn't notice until my friend and I called out to her.
I have a very strong emotional connection to all of my close friends and family, and I have two reactions when they get sick or are hurt. One is to stay with them until they feel like they can deal with the world as a functioning human being, or, if I am not able to stay with them, I get extraordinarily tense to the point where I feel like I need to rip someone's arms out of their sockets to relieve the stress. I wasn't able to stay with her today, and was forced to use the second reaction, but couldn't find a way to relieve the stress, so I've just bottled it up for release later. Absolutely crappy day.
