I Have had AMAZING support from friends and Family , Like I never expected. BUT Other friends (and Yes family too) Dropped me like a Hot Potato just after Dx. They were all "Oh I'm Sooooooooo Sorry, keep in touch, let me know if we can do anything.... etc, etc" Then..
NOWT! Even some of the Brogue Brigade (God Squad) have labelled me persona non Grata. Hmpph!
Some of my best and longest term friends (I thought) are now a far distant memory, and before ANYONE says it...NO I didn't email them with my complaints, gripes, worries and symptoms on a daily basis. Just tried to keep up the same old relationships. Oh well. I guess everything is always changing. Thanks for listening. Luv Julia XXX
