Being with Friends

One of the worst things about my illness was that I grew apart from my old friends. When I was sick, I just didn't have the time or energy to socialise with anyone and I felt as though I was completely alone. I know that a art of the reason why I am so happy and enjoying life so much now that I am so much better is because I have made some truly wonderful friends and am able to socialise again. I have also started talking to a few of my old friends again and am incredibely grateful to have them back in my life.

Since becoming well again, I have grown incredibly close to my gorgeous cousin who I have always known, but have not always been great friends with. Jemma is without a doubt one of my best friends and I really o feel as though I would be completely lost without her. It really makes no difference at all that she is 5 years younger than me as I really couldn't be any closer to her than I already am. I hae always been really youndg at heart anyway and I really do feel as though I am still 16 anyway.

And then there is my other best friend, who I have only known for about two months. Jozzy is one of the most wonderful people I have ever met and I feel as though she is here for me no matter what. We actually met because she was seeing my brother for a little while and even though it is unfortunate that things didn't work out between her and my brother, I am still incredibly grateful as I wouldnt have gotten to know her so well otherwise. When we are together, we never run out of things to talk about. She sent me the following cute picture the other day;

Life is so much better now that  I have these wondderful people in my life and I know that I would not have been able to develop such strong friendships with these girls if I was still sick. Throughout my recovery I really have started living again and it feels as though these two wonderful friends as well as the other people I have deveoped good friendships with) are just another of the many positive things that have come out of me getting better.


Jemma sent this to me the other day which although a bit cheesy, sums up our friendship perfectly :)
