Default He will be in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

My friend's ex roommate tried to commit suicide. I think it was 2 years ago.

She (my friend) never really talks about it. Honestly I don't think she cares much. I've never met a guy, and somehow I forgot all about it.

Today I was thinking about him and I met with my friend. I asked her how he was doing. She said he was still in the care facility, unable to eat on his own and in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

Her facial expressions were strange while she was telling me this. As if she was trying to hide a smile, while telling me about his misery. And lately I notice this a lot in people all around me. I think people are so evil and miserable, that they get happy and feel good about themselves for a minute when someone else is in even worse place.

I pray I don't become like that. I hope I am mistaken about my friend. I am not trying to be judgmental, but just very attentive and observing.

Yeah I think people are never happy for each other. The world is very conniving and "dog eat dog."

my ex U.K gf suffered from OCPD...she could walk only short distances...
so she was in a wheelchair...so in a way let me tell you all my opinion about folks in a wheelchair...my gf was always negative about BEING in a wheelchair,often complaining about people she saw who could walk etc..i wheeled her around all over the U.K==Tesco,Asda,Sainsbury,even music festivals like Bearded Theory in Derbyshire,in the 2years relationship we were together i felt pleased and proud to wheel her around,but in the long run i could not take her depression in full face and we ended up in arguments and finally we split...she loved me to the core,she probably still does..i lost total contact with her for few years now...so be it...she was not an esay lady to deal with,lots of ex lovers==i was nr.20 she said..oh?how is it?that when i for instance wheeled her around in a supermarket or where ever...the people we met were mostly talking to me?instead of the person in a wheelchair?do they feel conscious or hesitant talking to a wheelchair user at all?they are often not able to look them straight into the face==why not?
wheelchair users are very vulnerable and emotional sometimes about their conditions,a lot of normal people look down at them with pity...I think that's wrong attitudes...misery and depression is around all over..I sometimes recognize it,some people hide behind a mask and face life into a not fully as they really are...or wanna be...
my 2 cents on this posting really...

correction to my previous posting==my ex gf suffered from COPD which is a pulmonary disease where one has difficulty breathing and must use these medical puffs to make the lungs decongested etc...OCPD is something totally different...sorry for my mistake

Try not to worry about the mistake. You're not the first one and you won't be the last one. Heck, I've made some doozies myself so you're in good company.
