Guess it's time for an update. Got back Sunday night and have been busy with work until today.
Sadly, it doesn't appear to have hit her yet, either that or she just doesn't care. My friend cooked healthy breakfasts and I cooked healthy dinners (we were usually out doing errands during the day, so couldn't make lunches). But even though we cooked so much healthy food, she was sneaking and snacking on unhealthy food. And she brought home cases of diet pepsi after work a couple of the days and drank so many of them.
My friend got her to go for a walk around the block a couple nights before I got there. However, halfway done she was whining. When I was done there, we couldn't get her out of the house other than to go to work.
As much as I love her mom, I care about my friend so much more right now..she's working her ass off. She spent a month up here in the bay area working her ass off to get their old house her alcoholic father trashed before being forced into rehab in Texas fixed up so that they could sell it. Shes doing so much now. Cleaning, doing laundry, fixing the yards, cooking, and looking for a job on top of it. Shes even postponing (and maybe even canceling) her plans to enlist in the air force to help her mom through this..and her mom doesn't even try...ugh
It sucks having no ability to help. Even if I could do anything, stuck 4 hours away..never felt so powerless..
