I have never wrote on one of these before, but I am feeling very guilty about what happened with one of my friends and I want to see what people think. I have been struggling with infertility for years now and it is getting very, very old. I confided in a friend about it and she was generally supportive. However, then she got pregnant, which honestly was difficult for me. The thing is is that she sends biweekly updates about her pregnancy to a whole large group of people (weird, huh?). I asked her nicely a few times to not be included, which she then turned to me not being happy for her. I finally got tired of it and replied "unsubscribe" to one of her updates. She comes at me that I am not being supportive of her and doesn't want to be my friend. Am I? I just feel that since I am in this awful place and she should be in a happy place that I should be able to ask to not be included in those emails. I don't really think it is being unsupportive of her... I think it is maintaining my sanity. What do people think? Has anyone had friends like this?
