Um, I’m going to say that if she’s been sick that many times, then yes, she’s WAY overextended. In college, I would get the flu for a week (full on, down for the count) after every semester. Between 16-18 credits, my extra curriculars, work, maintaining grades, social life, etc, (then tacking on interviews for internships and jobs) I couldn’t have taken on an extra thing.

No, it’s not a big deal to send an email, but if she has a desk top computer, she has to be at it in order to send it AND be thinking of it at the same time. Difficult? No. Easy to forget? Yes.

I know you really want help with this, but she sounds REALLY busy. AND if she hasn’t been in a wedding before, she probably doesn’t even understand all of the stuff she should be helping with.

Also, don’t discount your Out of Town BMs, theres actually a lot they can do! (2/3 of mine are 2000+ miles away.)

Good luck, and hugs!

Sounds pretty catty on her end, although I can understand how stressful it is to be sick in college. I definitely do not think sending an email was too much to ask, especially considering how much time many college students spend on their computers. I think the best thing to do is try and make amends – you definitely don’t want this to continue all the way until the wedding. Don’t assume to know what the other has on their plate or else it can get really frustrating – I had that problem at work thinking people were incompetent when I just didn’t know what all they had going on.

@Riot: Hi, I didn’t read what the PP had to say, but I just wanted to show some support. I don’t think asking for a file to be emailed was too much…she is 21 not 5, and the maid of honor. I hope things get better for you and she grows up a little. Being sick in college sucks but even when I was dying with the flu and couldn’t get out of bed to feed myself if I had an assignment due  (and this is like an assignment of sorts) I got it done.

I hope everything turns out fabulously.
