Today is a beautiful day out here in the desert. Yesterday, I was outside doing yard work. Enjoyed being outside. Today is a rest day. Feeling good. Just pulling myself out of a depression. A very wonder and dear friend of mine will not talk to me anymore because my fat finger clicked the wrong emoji on one of her Facebook posts. I sincerely apologized many times but she will not forgive me. Another friend of hers made a comment about how rude that was. My friend said that it made her look bad. I am hurt because she should know me better than that. I would NEVER do anything to intentionally hurt her. I changed the emoji immediately when she told me. She went all through my cancer with me. We have been awesome friends. I just do not understand how she can just throw me away like this. It still hurts. 😥😥😥. She is a deeply religious woman and a great person.
Any suggestions? It has been 2 weeks. I do not feel like I should approach her as she said that she is done with me. She has fought with her children at times about serious stuff.

good morning, I have been able to get outside and started my mental health by getting my vegetable garden up and running. it has taken me a month to build, get soil in. it was hard work but I need to do it for me. I have paid for it by the pain in my hands do to arthritisin both hands. I felt that I have done something by me, for me. so now I am waiting to get my plants in and see what happens over next couple of months. reality is I have to deal with my HIV doctor, and her profeesional statements. Lord, this brings back the 1990's HIV/AIDs issues and the fight you had and now have to do to protect me and being treated like I am a thirtd class person. so now, my mental health is not good. the one thing is that they(MD) wants to you honest but will not be honest with you until you read their notes. I can see distrust. oh well, have fun all.

@bspires Hi there
I don't have the full story but your friend seems to be a bit extreme... Maybe is she freaking out with all that is happening? It's complicated to rationalize a situation where someone is too hurt or depressed to see things clearly. I know that I'm having a hard time trying to stay at home, I feel anxious and very lonely... You said that you already apologized many times so now give her some time and space. You can't force someone to forgive you, even if it is messy and stupid. Try to focus on positive stuff like your yard work and have faith things will get better.

Sorry, but she has proven herself to not be a wonderful and dear friend. Wonderful and dear friends accept mistakes, accept apologies, and don't hold them against a friend. I may seem harsh but, at age 79, I've had this experience a couple of times as we all make mistakes sometimes, nobody is perfect, and if the people in your life don't understand that then they don't need to be in your life.

Well here in Iowa she never put us on lockdown. She is opeoparts of the counties Monday. Mine is one. I haven’t been to work in 3weeks cause I’m high risk. So unless I have my dr write me more of my copd 3rd possible 4th stage cause haven’t did my 6months breathing test. And staying why and then had to write me release paper. Which I do not agree with at all. I still would like to wait til end May first June. We had two more confirmed cases today in my county. So now I’m gonna be send to work so tell me they care about kid and hour treatment. I’m scared not gonna lie we had onepisitve case probably a lot more My dr I can’t really b cause they are doing texting there. Plus my daughter is medical assistant or my dr. As Nd so fss a r my lung dr hasn’t return so what would you guys do????

I am 79 years old and at very high risk for coronavirus. I was diagnosed with COPD (emphysema, progressive even under treatment 8 or 10 years ago - I forgot exactly when). I do my breathing exercises religiously and have invented some of my own that my pulmonologist is now passing on to his other patients and he says that I have done a magnificent job retarding the progression. He says that by now he would have expected me to be on oxygen therapy but apparently what I've been doing has prevented that, at least so far. I now wear a mask; three were supplied by my pulmonologist, two given to me by my dentist, and I have had a number of them that I bought years ago at American Science & Surplus, so I'm covered. However, despite all the protections I'm not taking any chances. I have no-contact delivery of necessities like groceries and I don't go anywhere. I have plenty to keep me busy at home, I keep in contact with friends and relatives via telephone, and don't feel at all like I'm isolated.
