  • OMG, it is so nice to hear from everyone! Jacqui, Monique, Heather, Erin -- I hope you are all doing well and had a happy new year. And thank you for the advice. Yeah, I'm sick of her. Enough of this. If it was really worth making an effort with this woman, I would have known that without having to ask. I was confused because 2 friends IRL told me to talk to her -- but neither had ever had a m/c and one is pg right now, so I didn't really feel like they got it. Still, they made me feel so petty for wanting to cut Jane off. So I'm glad I asked the people who would really know -- YOU!!

    Lots of
     
    to you all, big hugs.

  • Sounds like not "true" friend in my book...

  • Since I'm always ready to jump in with unsolicited advice (hey, but you asked, so it's solicited, right?
     
    ) here goes:

    I am so sorry to hear about your m/c. I can only imagine they are difficult for anyone, and devastating for someone who has gone through as much as you have. (((heartfelt hugs))) I wish you nothing but success in your ttc journey. +++

    Secondly, I agree that this woman is not a friend, and not just because we love you so much we'll always tell you you're right no matter what LOL. It sincerely sounds as though the effort of this friendship has been yours and the whole deal has been pretty one-sided. YOU taking care of HER, YOU being considerate of HER. True friendship is reciprocal. I wouldn't approach her about it; few people can honestly take stock when being told of a flaw, and her likely response would be a defensive one. I would just write it off as a bad friendship "debt" and move on, cordially but not investing anything further of yourself.

    xoxo
