Right now as I am typing this sentence, someone who loves you and needs you is missing you terribly.

Fix that.

Figure out who it is, call or email them, and apologize for not spending enough time with them recently. Tell them you love them and make no excuses OR explanations for any absence or distance. Instead, tell them to come over and spend the night with you this weekend or ask to come over to their place and do the same. Bring chocolate, beer or wine, junk food of some sort, maybe even ice cream. Insist that the only appropriate attire is pajamas. Take them their favorite magazine, coffee, or rent their favorite movie.

If you have little money to spend on these things, that's okay. Wake up before they do the next morning and make them breakfast, then clean up their kitchen so they don't have to. Do it anyway because you love them, and make sure they know it. Reaffirm that you love them and need them, and that you would be a wreck without them.

Make this your new ritual.

Yes ma'am. I'll even crumble some of them up for the gravy to go on the biscuits, but they won't be angry ones.

the only people that would be missing me are doing so on their own accord. I try to get them to hangout but they're always busy so fuck 'em if they don't have time for me....I'm done wasting my time always trying to hangout with people that don't want to hangout with me. I have plenty of other friends to hangout with so no loss on my end ;)

Yeah, and that's really on them. Have to agree with you on that one.

I live here, you live here. You knows where I lives...I know where you lives. Let's put 2 and 2 together...

I want biscuits, too, dammit.

Mos definitely! D is working overnight on Friday, so if there's any running around or whatever you want to do Saturday afternoon while he's sleeping, I could be available.

If D's working overnight on Friday...SLUMBER PARTY!!! We've got the space fo sho, and WiFi! Unless of course you've got other plans...*sniffle*

Friday night is for me, that's why I suggested Saturday afternoon when he's going to need his alone time to sleep from working the night before - know what I mean?

I actually have a friend who had been missing for the past several days. Her roommates didn't know where she was, she hadn't shown to work in a week, her phone was off, and when I called her parents, they had no clue she had even disappeared. I kept texting her, even though she wasn't answering and I was really worried. I was on my way to the police department when she called me. She has been in the hospital for severe depression and attempted suicide for the last 8 days.

If I had done some of these suggestions, maybe she wouldn't have hurt herself.

A person's choices are their own, Lyssa. They're responsible for them and them alone. it is possible that you might have seen some signs and called some things into question, but there's nothing to do about that now - except to remember to stay in better contact with her in the future, and be as supportive as you know how to be.

I know you are feeling some very conflicting emotions right now, but the truth of it is this - if a person is on a crash course to destroy themselves, there is nothing you can do about that. She's obviously not one of those people, and is getting help for herself now. Be patient with her, and help her wherever you can by being the best friend you can be.

I send good energy for you both!

Though it is hard, don't beat yourself up about your friend hurting herself. You can't stop someone from being destructive, but you can now offer your love and support. I'm sure she will need it. I am glad that she got help for herself that is the first step.

Yeah, but you do what you can!

This is such a great idea. You know you are such a great friend. I hope I will seeing you this weekend, right? Sunday for a get together.

This time I will actually be able to stay longer than a damn hour, lol, and so that will be great. I don't get to hang out as much as I'd like.

Love ya!!
26th-Sep-2007 08:56 pm (UTC)
Of course you'll see me - like I'd miss an opportunity to get time with you!
27th-Sep-2007 04:43 am (UTC)
Well, I miss YOU and everyone else around here!

My trip to the ATL never materialized this summer. I was disappointed about it too!

I hope all is well with you!

Then don't be a stranger, 'cause we miss you too!

Hey - it'll happen when it happens, and not a moment sooner.

We're just fine, and Willow (I call her Belly) LOVES her Aunt Deby's blankets!!
