Almost all of us came here because we were hurting and looking for support, so it's only natural we develop friendships at DS. And I guess, in addition to our friends lists, we all have an unofficial list of special friends, the people we really trust and feel close to and have developed some kind of relationship with. But how do you deal with it when close friends leave DS for whatever reason? Sure you can exchange e-mails, but they usually seem to slowly drift away. And is this loss ineveitable?
