I wrote recently about online friendships and friendships in general. But at this moment there is no denying that there are definite degrees of friendship. I just found out this morning that a friend of mine from work has been diagnosed with leukemia. They took him to the regional hospital last night and he was then moved to MD Anderson. Now at work, I would say that I am in his close circle of friends and we have hung out a few times outside of work. But when it comes to something like this, being a work friend or an online friend isn't quite the same as being the personal kind. We will be on the second or third round of notification and while that is understandable it still makes me feel disconnected at a time when I want information.
I'm going to be my late to my first session. I need to pull myself together and finish getting ready.
Life is weird.
