Yesterday was sort of a rough day for my partner in consensual wombatting. One of his best friends from high school was diagnosed with schizophrenia a couple years ago and stopped taking his meds over New Years. He was hospitalized for 100 days the day after we got engaged. Yesterday we went to see him.
It was a good visit, and his friend is doing a lot better and was really happy to see us. But GreenHunk was just really down for the rest of the evening. I can't imagine it's easy to see one of your best friends go through something like that, and feel like there's nothing you can do to make it better.
I want to cheer him up tonight. But we have like almost no money right now because our 6-month car insurance bill was due this last paycheck. So I'm coming to you, dear GroupThink. Help me think of something really awesome to do for him!
