A sufficient realization of love will dissolve it all. | Emmett Fox  
I have to take a medical withdrawal from my courses.

My remaining courses, anyway.

Because my spine is pretty messed up. I'm twitching now every time I'm told, "You do realize you're lucky not to be paralyzed or have broken your neck, right?"

Yes, I know, but YOU DO NOT NEED TO TELL IT TO ME OVER AND OVER AGAIN, PEOPLE.

Phone calls are really good. As I have nothing to do that I'm ALLOWED to do atm.

I don't think I'm up to phoning right now, but I will get you those things I promised!

:( Oh hon, I'm so SO sorry. *HUGS*

Being 'lucky' doesn't make this any less crappy to deal with, people ought to shush.

I don't think I have your number but mine is 705 768-3918. I can't always talk but I CAN always text or e-mail or whatnot (I am not sure what kind of phone you have, sorry).

In any case please know I'm thinking about you and wishing you better health soon. <3

Good grief, I'm so sorry. I'm crashing in commenting again I just... wow.

I've been away from DW for an age - I started a new job and was an anxious mess for a while and i'm only just now getting caught up with all my corners of the internet - and now I'm reading all you've been dealing with and I just don't even know what to say. I'm so sorry you're going through all of this. I wish there was something concrete and immediate that I could do, that I could just teleport over and hug you. :(

My work hours are pretty standard issue 9-5 kinda jazz - some days I work till 7 - and I'm in EST. Kind of kicks chatting in the daytime in the teeth but I'm around evenings and I can't text during the day (though idk how much that hurts your eyes rn). I know we don't know each other super well but we don't have to be deeply personal or anything. We can just talk about fandom junk and avenger butts and I will read you fic or funny internet lists or things if you want. (I legitimately really enjoy reading things aloud to other people so if that would help somehow - I'm your person.)

If you are still looking for books I will GLADLY send you anything that looks like it would interest you off my shelf. Any genres you like? Comic books okay? (Also forget about paying shipping, I got that, just tell me where to send it).

I hope that you recover enough to be able to do things like spending time on the computer more soon. Just nudge me if there's anything you need that I can give. <3

longer response to come, but for now, I hug you.

*hugs in return*

This is so, so late, but. Since I can read some, now, do you think you might still send some books? I've raided kindle for everything free I could find and looked interesting, and I can't do TV or the net for long -sounds from TV hurts my head, as does the light from the computer screen -and I'm so bored that I've literally cried.

Absolutely!
I have a heap of books in a box I can dig up, I'll find it this weekend and send you whatever I find that I love. I've got. Hope you'll like my old favourites. I would also gladly donate to a 'things to read on your kindle' fund too.
Is there anything you wanted to buy but couldn't for the kindle?

Kudos for not punching people who tell you that you're "lucky" in this situation. I'm sorry you're losing a whole semester to this. :( It's probably better that you focus on healing now, but I know how much it sucks to have your education derailed even for a short amount of time.
