So called friends One thing

cripps Member Posts: 412 Pioneering
had a really bad day yesterday in one way trying just to keep cool because of the weather and in another way trying to keep cool when my so called friends tried to belittle me and get me to react about my disability. Now I’ve seen there true side I’ll never have contact with them again. What is wrong with people that they seem to think that just because bodies give up that brains do too. Well I’m back on my own with the cat by my side and already i feel better. One thing i do feel good about is having a family on this forum where everyone can interact and just be themselves.

    Hello @cripps Sorry to hear this, had this myself. Remember you are important and they should be left alone.

    Walk away like I had to. Do I miss them no.  The other thing recently met people similar..  Got a phone landline put a block on only calls I want to speak to.

    Walked away again.  Feels good.

    My friend to be hurt and abused be mis- treated is all wrong.  You need to move on.  Even though it is still hurting.

    Understand all that.

    Always here to support be a friend

    Always here to listen and so I hope all the community.

    Take care

    Thanks for your support, so right to move on friends like that are not friends in the first place, it will hurt but I’ll keep hunting for real friends.
