I'm sorry. Yes, i've had friends like that. It could be that she's preg and so consumed with it that she can't focus on anything else. It could be that she simply has seen u as her rock all this time and can't see u any other way. Yes, there could be many reasons for her not being there for u. I've had friends in my past who've turned out to be not such good friends and unfortunately u only find that out when u'r in need of their friendship most. U can't decide that friends aren't worth the trouble tho or that no one is worth the trust u must place in them to become close to them. It's just a matter of taking a chance on each person. This illness is hard to explain to even ourselves. It's hard to see by even the closest of family/friends and when u 'look so good' it's hard for others to believe we aren't well and to feel we deserve the sympathy that listening sometimes evokes. Don't give up on u'r friend. She may have a lot of things going on that she hasn't confided in u yet. She may not know how to deal with and accept what u'r telling her. Illnesses are scary..to us and those who love us. Confide in those u feel u can...don't keep it all to u'rself. She may not be the one u can talk to for now tho. Yes, it hurts so much to see that those u thought u could count on aren't there for u, but there may be many things going on with her that u don't know right now and she may be keeping them from u for u'r welfare as well. I hope u'll be able to talk to others and have that close friendship u need now, even if it's not her at this time. There are times when friends have to go different ways. They'll usually meet back someplace later in time, but there are times when we all just have different life experiences that command different paths and that doesn't mean the friendship is less important or valuable...just maybe on hold for now.
Yes. I've been rejected by friends AND family, including my own mother. I just don't bother talking about it anymore. YOu all here know more about ol' Uppity than any of my friends, do.
The world is made up of people who want everything to be perfect. And when then are confronted with not-perfect, they don't want to hear about it. That, unfortunately, is just the way it is.
Confide here, tell us what's going on. We'll be blunt sometimes, and maybe even rude, but we're always willing to listen. At least most of the time..
