Update on "Friend"
January 6, 2009 3:56pm CST
Some of you may remember a recent discussion I posted about breaking away from a woman who had been my friend for a couple of years. I just discovered that the reason for some of her odd behavior is that someone has turned her on to drugs. When another neighbor informed me of this today I was not completely surprised because my daughter was here over the weekend and told me of her suspicions when she noted the change in the woman. Needless to say, I really hate to hear this because she has been through so much, but even I cannot solve everyone's problems. My daughter stressed that I should keep her out of my apartment and that is what I plan to do from now on. She will be the second friend I have lost to such a problem. Have you ever had something like this happen?

Oh dear...that's pretty awful and a real shame that now you have to avoid your friend. Why do people do this...drag others down with them I mean? I know with people I have been with...I have picked up their bad habits...how come they don't pick up my good ones??? It's a mystery to me.

Can you try to direct her to find help from professionals? I have not followed you other discussion, but if this friend is causing you problems in your personal life than you are doing a good thing that you keep her out of your personal life. But being a friend implies helping her in times of need. She seems that she needs help to kick out this habit. (c) ronaldinu 2009 - the more people I meet-the more I love my dog
