    Agree with all the excellent advice already given. This has happened to me
    as well so I understand how bad it hurts and how terribly disappointed you
    are w/your friend, with good reason.

    You handled this exactly right, stand strong, stay true to yourself (as you are
    doing) and move on. People change, it happens. I divorced my 1st husband of
    10 yrs over this, he developed into a person I did not like or respect...finally I
    had to leave, broken hearted but just could not compromise my moral values
    any longer. Your hurt will ease w/time...sending you a big hug...


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I dont know you, I only know what you have typed here, and my personal (unprofessional) opinion is this -

    Only YOU can allow someone else to take advantage of you.


    as you said, YOU have been there when SHE needed you,
    YOU said now isnt a good time to visit, but she still came, and you allowed it.

    no, it doesnt make it any easier, or feel any better, HOWEVER the pain today is a good lesson, and it will help you learn in the future.

    The lesson you have learned in this episode ? PEOPLE SUCK, write off the cost of the tickets (which didnt cost you a dime, only your time) write of this 'Friend' unless you want to keep supporting her through everything, and dealing with the Drama - Hell dont just write off the friendship, RUN FAST AND FAR FROM THIS POISON and go cuddle up with your bully.

    @Texas Carol - thanks for the advise and hugs
    @rarhett - appreciate your words, too. I totally own up to my part in this. I've always said, it really does take two to tango. Some of it is your fault and some of it is mine, never 100% either side. It might be 80/20, but as an adult, I know I allowed this to happen. Lessons learned. Hard, but I'm thick headed.
