Nowt as strange as folk

as the saying goes.

I mailed a friend yesterday as i hadn't seen her around for wee while, i asked how she was and that i hadn't seen her around (online i meant) I got a terse reply back saying that none of her "friends" could be bothered checking before and it's been a great learning experience or something.
Lets call her Joanna, cause that's her name.

Now at first i felt really guilty, i know i hadn't contacted her, it was her birthday when i was down in Newcastle, she was actually meant to be running race but was no show. Anyway, i was rather busy that weekend and I've not exactly had best time f it myself since then! So surely she could also have contacted me? works both ways surely?

I tried and tried to talk to Jo and get her some help but she just wants to blame everyone else quite frankly, Karen and Phil were 2 people who got a lot of blame for her problems, even though i pointed out she is grown woman who makes her own decisions etc.

Not like we haven't been down this road before, she went AWOL before then when we bumped into her at a race she ignored everyone, i actually went up to her to congratulate her on a recent race she's done and hugged her but she stood stock still, mumbled and walked off. I still gave her another chance though!

You cant help people until they are willing to help themselves.
