what is a true friend?? to me that is someone who takes you almost the same as a marriage voe. they are with you through thick and thin, sickness and health, rich and poor. i have two true friends, one is my beautiful wife, the other is my friend david in alabama. with out them life would be impossible for me, for i am disabled with cancer i can not get around on my own, my family has abandoned me, i was adopted as an infant though so it is alright for them to say they do not owe me anything. thank god for my friends, they take me to the doctor,and feed me everything that i can not do. with out them i would be in an institution, may i be able to repay them before i die. do you have a true friend.

i can understand him not wanting you to see him. i felt the same way about my women but we are together now and i am so glad, she is one of my true friends. i wish you luck in finding your man. but do not be mad it is very hard to lose your health when you are a young man. it makes you feel so unworthy.

you will, i am 44 now, and i do consider myself quite lucky. sometimes i feel guilty, but it is a two way road, when i was well i had helped them when they were down. i still help when i can. you have to take a chance on people most will burn you, but the ones that do not make up for all that. my wife loving wife, left me three weeks after i was diagnosed with cancer. she took all of our money and my truck, left her 17 year old boy with me and split. two years later i looked like i might get well, she started calling me to say she was sorry, she made a mistake, she thought i was going to start up my tree service again lol. i just laughed to my self, how dumb did she think iwas or who good did she think she was. me and her son my step son are still close, he is in the air force now. a rule i follow is never give what you can't do without. good luck you have one friend here, lopaka

you're right... everybody needs atleast one true friend... when i was doing my schoolings i had one big circle of friends who would give their life for me... i can say they litterally loved me more than their parents.... after school, i entered my engineering schools where i met three of my friends... they were so into the subjects i thought i can also become one big brainy in my college... but everything turned out upside down.... they used me properly and left me wander as nothing.... for the first two years... they took me to so many places.... they laughed with me.... i had some difficulties with my love life.... they pretended that they're sorry... the problems i had in my personal life reflected on my studies... i started having arrears... i lost interest in my studies.... they nevr bothered to ask how many arrears i had or have... they never bothered to help me in my studies.... infact they had a night out on the day i had four arrears in my crucial semester.... because of that four arrears i lost my eligibility for the campus interview.... they got placed and worst part, i came to know from my other class mates that they're recruited by so and so companies.... thats when i got engaged to my fiance.... he had same problem with his friends... they used him for his money.... and never helped him in his studies..... he was supporting me and i supported him... i think true friendship is what i have with him.... we love each other and we are true friends.... he said change your group of friends.... and he made me sit with different set of people in my class... i noticed how much good he has done.... i really love this new gang of people... they really make me feel that i belong to their set... i love them a lot.... i should mention about my friend nive... who helped me a lot in my studies.... such a sweet girl, even if i call her at 2am and a day before exam... she'll help me.... i love this female a lot.... next is shahina.... i have never told her how much she means to my life.... words are not enough to express my love for her.... narkis, very innocent girl.... shabnum, you can speak anything to her, she really keeps her ears ON.... gitu, sheeba... two sweet girls who gave me company during my project work though they dont belong to my team.... i really love my friends now.... but sad part, in another months time we'll be back to our native.... will really miss them, keep in constant touch by mailing them, sending gifts and all.... i dont want to forget or miss these girls.......
