I'm a 49 yr old female who has found her soulmate 29 years ago. I was diagnosed with Ra Nov 4 2014 and I have the full love and support of my 23yr old son, 19 yr old daughter and my husband. NO DRAMA in my family life....My problem is my 36 yr old friendship with Kim, a childhood friend. We have been best buddies since 1979 (grade 8). Our friendship has survived the death of my 2 baby boys, a ms diagnoses and the tragic death of my sister. I supported her through her divorce (this divorce involved her husband commiting incest) , the death of her father, etc. The problem is that for the last 10 years, she has been complaining about one of her friends. She had me believe that her friend, Connie, was a "lazy self absorded, pathetic loser who took advantage of sick leave at their job"....Guess what? I have learned that Connie suffers from RA...When I informed Kim that Connie has RA, she said "ya ya...I know..what a faker...fake illness" . I then told her that I have RA...she went silent . I can not bare Kim to "bad mouth" me...My husband says to end this friendship..I just want to cry...
