My Best Friend

I’ve just recently lost my best friend of 20+ years she passed away on Easter Sunday. She was so much a brave lady. Beat breast cancer. Then it was found in her bones and liver. They gave her 2-3 months. She had 3 weeks. She got to spend those 3 weeks at home with her children and grandson, which is a blessing. But I didn’t get to say goodbye to her. As I have MH issues which agoraphobia. And I now feel so guilty that I couldn’t see her to tell her that I loved her. She was my best friend but we were more like sisters. I miss her so much :broken_heart:

I am so sorry to hear of your loss
I losty best friend in Feb after a short illness. I did’nt get to say good bye as he did’nt want to see anyone in the final stages. I wrote him a letter which helped me a bit. I try and remember how lucky I was to have such an amazing friend. Thinking of you 🩷

Thank you. For your reply. I’m sorry you are going through this too. Everyday I wake up thinking I must message her to tell her something then remember I can’t. And the grief starts again
