Sadly, it CAN kill friendships ... It's one hard way to find out who your true friends are. Several of my (now former) friends stopped calling, returning calls, and answering letters during my two bouts with the beast. The same thing happened to my mom years before when she was fighting it. It was before the Internet and personal computers were in wide use, so it was a lonely and painful experience. It's a great blessing to have a husband and friends now who wouldn't withdraw if there's ever a recurrence. I got through those times only through the grace of God.

I apologize for the "outburst," but just had to come out with it. I'm just so grateful that you are not the type to quietly disappear when support is needed. Yes, it's awkward and painful to be around someone with cancer and not know what to say or how to help. But at least you can BE there. Just that much is powerful medicine.

I don't think it's a bug---because Tapatalk is a pared-down version of the forum platform, they decided to leave some stuff out. The snowballs are fun, but it's a small loss for the ability to read and post on iPad.

Tomorrow is my first training day with NoFrills.
You will do wonderful, Christmasstar - have fun with your training!!

I know, it is a hard way to find out who your friends really are. I have walked through the whole cancer thing with a few friends and watched them also be abandoned by others. But true friends will not leave when you need them no matter how hard the battle becomes.

Hi, Sugar! My afternoon isn't going too bad, thank you for asking. I'm just taking it easy - doing some research for work and reading a book Seawaters mentioned, Zoo. How is your day going? I hope it is a MERRY and relaxing one!
