If I have learnt anything in this last couple of years its how wonderful true friends are. When I first got diagnosed with RA in 2007 one of my so called friends dropped me so fast I almost had a nose bleed. No more emails texts or phone calls, no more anything. Anyway my other friends supported me and have been with me through two divorces, births of children. Hospital stays and ops and recently helped me through my mothers passing. Friends are definitely worth their weight in gold. I will always treasure them.
