What to think...? - December 6th 2009, 02:46 PM

My friend's just been diagnosed with CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome) and I suppose it explains why I don't see her in school very much. Only thing is it doesn't explain why she doesn't communicate with me out of school - this time last year she was my best friend, now we hardly ever talk. It's like she's forgotten all about me... I just don't know what to say or what to think...

Holly Grogan, my friend, died 16.09.2009.
Goodbye, Holly.
May your smile light up the face of heaven.

Hey, My Bezzie went through the same thing =]

Don't take it personally! People that suffer from CFS find it really difficult to communicate, they find it very tiring to hold a conversation or meet up with people.

Bear in mind, that if your friend is taking time off school she must be doing school work at home, that leaves her even less time to communicate with you. She may also be trialling different drugs to help her out - this could have some unwanted side effects; such as moodiness, and wanting to be alone.

I know when my friend had CFS she suffered from most of what I've talked about above, but think about the fact that she also has to come to terms with this new condition she has - it cant be easy =]

I think if you want to communicate the best way would be to drop her an email? That way she can easily reply in her own time. You can see how she is feeling and give her all the gossip from school =] Maybe on a good day you could go over and see her?

Just send her an email, see what way of communicating would suit her best =] She was your best friend, don't let an illness pull you apart =]

As an idea, you could put together some pictures of you guys together? Remind her of the old days =]

I hope this helps,

I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.

I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.
