Brian, I think we need a personal problems thread!!!
Anyway, I couldn't find another place to post this but I could really use some advice & opinions from an objective viewpoint.
Some of you know my father passed this past Saturday, Dec. 3rd.
My problem is with my "best friend" of 5 yrs. I'll make this as short as I can. I spoke with her the weekend before & things seemed fine between us. I informed her that my father was not doing well & it didn't look good. She sent an email on Sat. Dec. 3 evening that she needed "an emotional break from me & hoped I would understand".
No other explanation. I was still at the hospital & since my dad passed late, I didn't see it until Sunday morning. My DH told me about it before he let me read it.
I thought this was pretty crappy. I have been there for her through everything from job problems, death of her cat, death of a friend, death of her birth-mother, her FIL's death & everything in-between. The one major event that has occured to me during our friendship when I needed her the most, she bales. BTW, we were supposed to go spend Thanksgiving with her & her hubby, but my dad went into the hospital so we didn't go since it was out-of-state.
I sent her back an email that said I didn't understand, my father had passed & thanks for being there for me! I'm crushed, heart-broken & angry. I feel abandoned by her in my time of need of a "best friend". My trust in her has been broken. I'm seriously considering ending the so-called friendship. I feel this is beyond repair. I think this has shown her true colors.
My DH is saying I'm being a bit hyper-sensitive since I just lost my dad & I should hold off doing anything right now, but again, I feel this was one of the worst things she could do & beyond repair in my eyes.
Any advice/opinions would be appreciated. What would you do???
