Hello, was wondering if anyone could relate or had any thoughts.
I had my tbi when I was 16yrs old. Am now middle-aged. My friends went on to have kids, careers and husbands. I didn't. My journey has been very very different. I have kept in touch with a few old friends who I am fond of and see about once a year. However another one has just surfaced after well over a decade of not a word. I used to make contact with her but was quite unwell at the time so I backed off. At one time I sent her alot of info about Headway and brain injury as she didn't seem to get it. She lives four hours away by train. She has invited me to stay but
1.) I am a bit annoyed that she hasn't pulled her weight re keeping in contact. Any effort has been totally one way (the odd call to say 'hi. I hope you're all well etc.' Ie nothing heavy.
Her landline has been 'broken' for months. I actually think this is an excuse! (She has given me her mobile though.)
2.) I will be very fatigued indeed
3.) I am worried we won't get on and I will be trapped! I am worried that I will get annoyed with her or have a melt down. Her life is totally different.
Should I bother maintain this friendship or just move on?
Any thoughts would be welcome
