I also feel like I am abandoning a friendship that I severed ties with in 2006 because it was quite unhealthy and not reciprocal. I don't feel like giving you the details, but just believe me when I tell you that I needed to do so. Well, she has been calling because her father passed away. I am extremely sad about his death, but I can't reestablish a relationship with her. She has always tried to make me her mother or therapist. We have known each other since we were 10 years old. However, the relationship became quite unheathy to me. Her calls have been whiny and manipulative. I don't mean to sound harsh, but without giving details this is where I am.
When I told my psychiatrist that I made dinner, he was supportive. However, he told me that it would be better if my time was spent exercising instead of cooking. I feel discounted and angry as this was a good step for me.
I also want to be healthy enough or feel good enouth to go to the Grease sing-along this Friday. I've been looking forward to this for months.
