I seem to have lost a dear friend today. We both recently started working 2nd shift again so I called him when I got off work to see how he was. I haven't talked to him in a while and thought it was just scheduling until he answered the phone.
I was informed that I had my bike club, old fraternity brothers, and a host of others to hang out with and that he didn't want to be one of them.
My friend is manic depressive and has withdrawn quite a bit in the past year. I've been worried about him since he questioned the existence of God when the power went out at a restaurant depriving him of an order of chicken wings. I am/was one of the few friends he has left. I'm seriously worried about him and now it looks like he has decided to write me off.
I don't know what I will tell his wife the next time she calls to talk. I don't expect many of you to understand or agree with this, but I wouldn't feel right about continuing to talk to her behind his back.
