end of the year coming up and I want to get on keeping an excellent friend who i havent seen in eight years and haven't talked to in four years. She hasn't done anythingn wrong, I went through a tough time eight years ago and she was a great source of help and friendship. Once I started to feel better and things were going better, and I didn't feel depressed/anxious anymore and the meds kicked in, I felt comfortable being by myself for the first time in a year and just wanted to spend time with myself. So the next time I ended up calling her, i was having differnet problems, and once again she was a great friend and helpful. Same thing: once I feel better and things are going well, I don't do well with calling at all. Or writing. And she's sent me birthday presents and cards and I mean to get back to her but don't. So I want to get my priorities back on track and she is one of them. She had sent me a card to say sheh was thinking of me and I want to do the same in return and it's been about two months since she sent it and when I was home for Chritsmas I actually saw her across a room at an event, didn't recognize her at first, then did when I realized who was staring at me afterward but felt way too awkward to say anything. And she saw me and saw that I saw her. So now I wantn to apologize to her in a letter or card and hope that our friendship is still okay. Like I said in my letter, I need a boot in the butt every so often to get back on track and this is it. So instead of meaning to get hold of her but doing other things instead, I"m making contact. Any advice on what to say or whether you think our friendship will still be there would be great. Even if you have negative things to say about me, that's cool. It all helps.
