one of my closest friends has gone......... she's not died but has taken herself away from people in her life as she is so unwell....... my partner walked away 7 months ago and I would have gone to pot had it not been for her (and you know who else your here) but i feel like she has died. the message yesterday was a very long "I'm sorry" i know she need her own space.... my trust issues are crushed right now... i'm so scared...

I'm so sorry @letmein

I had a very good friend who helped me overcome my alcohol addiction only to suddenly walk out of my life because I couldn't give him a lift in the car for a walk that would have taken him 10 minutes.

For a long time I felt rejected and upset by his behavior, but now a few years down the track, I can see I have other strong friends and family and I accept he must have had his reasons for the rejection.

It hurts at the time, but there is a future for you.

Take care xxx
