I have lost a lot of friends after becoming sick. I used to be the 'trophy' friend of sorts, pretty and popular, smart and engaging (still all of those except popular!), but making people uncomfortable is just something we do. The upside is that it shows us who our real friends are. It's depressing at first to be able to count the number of true friends on one hand, but who wants to be surrounded by a large group of people who never cared about
you in the first place?
Right now I have my fiance, a friend on the other side of the country, two a few hours from here, and lately a friend of my brother's who helped me through my latest procedure. That is what I've gotten up to in the past year and a half. I get depressed sometimes, but it makes me realize how much I love them.
