Thanks for the comment on my blog page. It takes me awhile to get back to everyone.
I am getting tougher in my old age, so things like that may affect me for the moment, but I don't dwell on it long. Sometimes I wish I hadn't wrote it, but did feel something like betrayal or something --my story in writing was my therapy.

I will probably remember it for a while but have forgiven my always thin friend who doesn't REALLY understand the depth of an formerly overweight persons (emotional) pain. And then I also realize I was REALLY a different person than the person she had seen in many years and she was in shock! lol

Insensitive? yes. Unforgiveable? no. emoticon

Congrats on your new job! I see you are an RN! that is great!
I work for a hospital system in my area. I am not in direct patient care though. I am on the non-clinical side of things!

Congrats! emoticon emoticon
