I haven't heard from my "friend " Amy all year. We'd been friends since middle school. I loved her like family. We'd been through a lot together. Her divorce and second marriage, the loss of her Dad then years later her mom. The loss my mom. But after losing Jack she simply disappeared. I don't get it. Doesn't she realize how much worse her actions or lack there of made things for me. I not only lost my husband but my life long friend. The two people I trusted most in the world gone at the same time. Only she is still among the living. I kept wondering what I did to deserve such treatment. But deep down I know this is just her and now that I look at things a little more objectively I see how she's treated other friends and I guess I shouldn't be surprised. But I am. We've been friends since middle school. I contacted her a couple times and each time she said how sorry she was and how bad she felt about not staying in touch. How she was so embarrassed. But then she turned around and didn't stay in touch again. How many times can you apologize and then do the same thing. I only hope I was a better friend to her then she was to me. I think she must have seen a post I placed on face book about the day because surprisingly she sent flowers with a card saying how she knows I won't ever forgive her and how she thinks of me. I guess the flowers will help her sleep at night. I'm really at a loss. Not angry, just mortally wounded. I guess our friendship was more important to me than to her. Have others lost friends like this?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
We are surely all familiar with that lie that Trich tells us, "just one hair" "just pull one", "just one more". It's a lie that's hard to disbelieve in the moment, and it's only after we've indulged in the impulse that we realise we fell for it again. I created a similar thread over on Trich World a couple of years ago (the Trich social networking site) and it's still popular! So I thought I'd...
