    I wondered if everyone finds that it’s very hard to find a friend to talk about this? Even my closest and best friends are so uncomfortable and don’t know what to say? So the chsnge the subject .. Walk away … Or simply pretend the dobt hear me! This truly is added to the pain

      Hi Jabet, I wanted to say to you that I have dealt with this for so many years now….and yet we feel that need to receive comfort from friends we love. When I do discuss this I often times regret saying anything. Their reaction is often hurtful. Either they are silent or say something like…sorry to hear this. Maybe they do judge us on some level. I guess the saying about not understanding until you’ve walked in someone else’s shoes may apply here. I say less to people as the years have gone by. With My acceptance I feel less of a need to share this pain. This came after much time. You are not alone in your pain as their are so very many of us now. Take good care, Lynne
