    If you are going to feel guilty, do a thorough job of it?

    Sometimes language makes it more difficult, not less…

    Then he ends up going to court over this and has no idea how to plead…

    I’d say he did enough of hurting himself in his confusion.

    No, that made perfect sense, Sarah. A frustrating amount of sense in fact. I wish Mark luck with that.

    Feelings about feelings are some of the hardest ones to deal with. I know exactly what Sarah means.

  11. @Joe — He should feel guilty about what he did at the LARP. But that’s not what they are talking about. Marc was apologizing for ‘making’ them take care of him and help him when he’s broken. And *that* is what Abby is saying he shouldn’t feel guilty about. There’s nothing wrong with needing help, and if people offer their help you sure as hell shouldn’t feel guilty about accepting it. And in this case, they aren’t even offering, they’re saying ‘we’re helping whether you like it or not!’

    This is completely separate from what he did at the LARP, which, yes, he should feel guilty about and make amends for.

    To court? Seriously? Over what? A tiny push? Some people in here treat Marks outburst (that was wrong) as if he had beaten Damien into the hospital.

    The only person he beat up enough to have to go to the hospital was himself.

    Speaking of hurt, it’s sounding like time for another dose of painkillers.

    Should I feel guilty about not having to read that twice?

    @Joe:

    She’s not saying he shouldn’t feel guilty for blowing up. He should feel guilty for that. He should NOT feel guilty that his friends are there to support him as he pulls himself back together and comes to terms with his issues.

    Uuhh… So painfully bad-timed line there, mr. I-Just-Broke-My-Hand-Recently… 🙁

    Props to the friendgroup for this. It’s… for extreme grief and trauma. Like, older generations sometimes understood “Don’t let your friend be alone right after they lose their spouse.” It fits here too.

    I know this is neither here nor there, but I just realized how buff Mark actually is. I mean, I knew he was sporty but he’s actually pretty big. Good thing he ended up punching a wall and not someone else.

    I bet there is a Kadabra under the table hitting them with status effects moves.
