Wow, this sounds like quite the situation.

This story resonates with me (as right now I am going through some very uncomforable health issues) and, if it is as bad as your friend has said I think you just need to be there for her.  Not pester her or anything, but definitely let her know that you are around.  Maybe just send her a random text saying you hope she is doing ok, or ask her if she wants to get a cup of coffee or something.

In other words, I think she would appreciate some gentle reminders that you are still there (the worst thing that could happen is if she feels isolated due to all of this).  Of course this is a personal suggestion, but that is what I would want if I were your friend. She will come around when she feels up to it.

Hope this helps!

I myself am terrible at remembering to do things with people, and unless it’s aspur of the moment dinner, or a mutual friend drops by from out of town, I’m usually so beat by the end of the day, I’m fine just hanging out at home, and leaving my friends, most of whom have SOs to spend time with them.  That said, I’d see nothing wrong with sending a quick text once a week with a joke or something small to make her smile, as i sounds like she’s got  a lot on her mind, and also, like me, she might be worried inviting YOU to do something would seem A) invasive knowing you’re planning a wedding, or B) worried you really don’t know her/like her well enough to want to do anything with her.

Just message her either online or texting now and then, letting her know when you’re doing things you wouldn’t mind her joining in – she might start to feel comfortable enough to reciprocate (and return your cothes 😛 )

i totally agree with @wbninja: and @Isilme. just send her a text every week or so to show your support.
