Just wanted to say that geekgirl is so right – I lost a bunch of friends but I found the true ones and they were ALWAYS there to support me. They never let me slip by and they weren’t selfish. It meant the world to me. My friends helped me get by and I hope your friends are supportive, kind and understand. What’s more – I hope they never assume they understand what you’re feeling. I know it upset me when friends compared my situation to losing a grandparent and talking about themselves. I know its human nature to want to relate but then I felt like I was comforting others. Sorry its a bit off topic! But I want to make clear that there are so many great supportive people!
