Re: Friends abandoning you
Thank you so much, Sera--this is my first time posting in a forum like this and getting a response means so much, especially one as kind as yours. It really made me feel a lot better, and less crazy. I agree that she knows, on some level, that she is doing something not quite right. But she's always been stubborn, and she (subconsciously, I'm sure) ends up making me the one who says sorry.
Actually, my biggest source of support here is their mom, who has been with us every step of the way. And now that I've seen what kind and helpful people post on these forums, I will be sure to stay active. Thank you again for your insight--it really helps me straighten things out in my head and think about how to deal with them.
