Hi, I just joined and can't seem to find any current posts. I'm having trouble finding out if anyone else has experienced this sort of thing: I completed chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer in 2019. My parents and 2 sisters shut me out of their lives. Never asked how I was. I guess I should be grateful. We were never that close. I have a wonderful husband that went to all my treatments and 2 other sisters that I am close with. My biggest issue is something that happened recently. My so called best friend said that I had had a very treatable cancer and was never in any real danger of dying. I was just getting in my car to leave her house when she said that. I don't know why she thought it wasn't serious. So I wrote her a letter explaining how her words hurt me and I included information about my cancer that I printed out. She called me later and was furious that I would "correct " her. I look back now and realize she never came to see me when I was going through my treatments. How could I have picked such a wrong person for a friend?
