My friend LAS is in a lot of pain right now. She is coming up on the one year anniversary of surviving breast cancer (Dec.12th?) and the one year anniversary of getting sober. (And still hoping her fertility hasn't been cacked by the chemo so she can find an egg someday.)
Sorting out the friendships, and the ex-friends, and the crappy family issues is really really getting to her. So give her a written hug. If I could fly out there right now and give her a real one, I would. But all I can do is send her some words.
Take care hon. Life gets better, really.
