Wow, sometime I must take a week off work and really read this posting in detail !
Seriously, such an exceedingly long posting really is hard top handle.
Your "friend" really doesnt sound much like a friend, but likr someone they used to call "neurotic", and though each of the sad stories she tells can indeed happen to someone, it seems very unlikely that all of them would have happpened to just one person. And the stories seem specifically designed to elicit sympathy and to manipulate others, and to change to fit the occasion.
Its hard enough to remember the truth, let alone to remember false stories.
Its wise not to agree to get involved with someone like that, or to allow them to manipulate you ( and when they're really good at it, you don't even recognize when its happening ).
There sound like elements of what gets called Confabulation, too.
Only a good deal of very highly skilled psychotherapy from a very experienced shrink might help such a person to sort herself out, and then only if she recognized that she really needed and wanted to change.
