I was sick for over 2 ears and friends were sympathetic but when I opted for surgery, some of those same friends couldn't deal with it. I was shocked, they did not walk in my shoes, they didn't know what I put up with on a daily basis. How could someone, a friend, question a decision I made on my health? It dumbfounded me. I am now 7 years post op and I can tell you that those who weren't happy with my decision are no longer friends. Lying in a hospital recovering I decided that as a part of my new health I needed to clean house and started with dropping those who didn't support me.
