Walking, sometimes referred to medically as Atypical Pneumonia, requires the prescribed medical treatment, however, your side of the question is personal. I suggest you do some errands or household chores for your friend as she is not capable or should refrain.
According to The National Library of Medicine, take these steps at home:
Control your fever with aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen or naproxen), or acetaminophen. DO NOT give aspirin to children.
Do not take cough medicines without first talking to your doctor. Cough medicines may make it harder for your body to cough up the extra sputum.
Drink plenty of fluids to help loosen secretions and bring up phlegm.
Get a lot of rest. Have someone else do household chores.
I am thinking of going to get my Masters in Library Science ...?
I have several friends and family members that got degrees in library science. It's one of those fields where everyone seems to be very happy with their decision. They work in the school districts, for universities, and for national archives.
Why is my "friend" such a horrid person?
If that's the angle a person wants to go off reality at, and it's habitually what they do in continuing succession - it could be a horrid thing, a needful thing or something else - but any which way, if that's not something you can cope with, then just put it in perspective;
From your point of view this individual is horrid - so in some way they would find the nicest day of the year, the best of any circumstances and the instance of any luck, fortune, good will, high spirits or anything making life okay, into a dreary, glum reason to despise the world and the people in it - even to the extent where they're abusive, callous, ignorant, maybe even unlawfully incriminating themselves through such hateful acts.
You should therefore try not be like that if it has no advantage for you, especially not if is just tit for tat rebuke, back answering and taking the bait - Rather it is possible you are 'seeing the light' and that you can have the nicest day of the year, any day, all year round - just a state of mind, and that this person is a means by which you find your good nature and high spirits - but they have gone too far if it always falls upon you to put matters straight - So, a taste of their own medicine is usually enough to right a person from this kind of maligning sleight of life.
Whether or not you need to, use[/assign] all your spare time and any period usually spent with her - e.g. visit business premises all day every day for a week or two - get application forms for jobs, ensure you go to places she is banned from too. Also visit the library and at least get to know the layout of the building.
If there's any time left for you to still socialise with this person, be sure and have bought local and national newspapers, scan the job sections and begin writing letters of application.
You of course do not need to send any of these applications off, and if you do, you have the pleasure of turning any offer down - it is more an exercise in using your time as an example to someone else.
It should come to light and when you are asked, no matter what line of enquiry she uses, direct, underhand, devious, or whatever - the answer is simply - "I'm looking for available work, I need a proper income, I expect one day I will not only want to fund a personal lifestyle choice, but it will mean the considerable outlay for a property and transportation" - and be sure to tell her: "I'll move anywhere I have to, I've really begun to see a much clearer way - blow the cobwebs off and begin in earnest with something truly worthwhile...."
...And she should be staggered, taken aback and despondent with a level-headed neutral rejection of anything she brings to your social to & fro. She is after all in some sense, limping to this friendship with something either inadequate or inappropriate...
Then take a deep breath and politely ask her to make space and time for you to finish, if she doesn't mind too much, to just leave because you have a lot to finish and an early start tomorrow.
This is all the revenge you could possibly need - not actually doing something to her, just redressing the balance of your affairs - she is not welcome to push you around in the course of your life and successful endeavours if she is only going to be disrespectful, so she is leaving, 'evicted' and invited back only on condition of some civil, respectful behaviour.
