I have a group of friends- 3 girlfriends, their husbands are friends with my husband, and their kids are friends with my kids. It's like family, we've been friends for 13 years.
This year has been particularly bad for me health-wise, and one of my friends just doesn't deal well with weakness. She has been kind of mean about it. I'm just at a lost as to how to deal with it.
Admittedly I'm not always myself lately, but this is hardly my choice. I wish I could turn off the cranky switch. But instead of being understanding, she's being really short tempered about it, bringing me to tears more than once.
I wish I could say the other friends are circling the wagons and protecting me, but they kind of look up in the air and do their best not to get involved.
And that leaves me friendless when I need my friends the most. It's breaking my heart
