I need a hug.

Let's call them Subject A and Subject B.

Both are in hospital. I've known A longer than B, but overall probably spent more time with B - certainly enjoyed more of the time i've spent with B.

A has ended up in hospital resulting from a bacterial infection which may have been triggered by his excessive drinking. He is still in hospital because of his drinking.

B is in hospital through a quirk of fate. She is still in hospital through bad luck.

B should have more of my sympathy because i care about her more and because she hasn't done anything to make her situation worse. Sadly, through geography, A is taking all my worry and concern right now because i see the impact that this has on his family - who mean a hell of a lot to me.

If i was asked to describe A, I would describe him as rude, abrasive, brash, abusive,inconsistant, vague stubborn/pig-headed, chauvenistic(sp) and not very bright. If you talk to people who knew him before he started drinking, he is described as smart, friendly, funny, stubborn and considerate. Alcohol sucks.

Don't feel bad for being there for the people you can reach. It's still shitty that 'A' is suffering, and I guess if he's an alcoholic then it's not entirely his own fault. Regardless, it's not his family's fault, and it's great that you're concerned for them.

Thanks. I'm hoping both people will have full and swift recoveries. We'll see.

Best wishes to you too!
