I have heard that there are time's in one's life that you will learn who your real friends are. It's not a pleasant experience but at least you know. When I got pregnant with Roger at 19 I had a few friends drop off. When I got married the first time a few more, a few more when I got divorced (like divorce is catching), then some more when I remarried. I have to say I think the most drop off came after Roger was diagnosed. It's like since they don't know what to say they don't answer the phone or try to contact us. I mean come on guys he is the same kid he has been for almost 12 years only now we know why he acts like he does. But hey if that's how ya wanna be fine your loss not ours.
