I just found out today that one of my oldest friends was diagnosed with stage 4 ovarian cancer. I knew she'd been in the hospital for a bit, but had no idea why. She's in her early 30s; way, way too young for this.
I don't know if this is going to affect my anxiety, but I feel sure it will.
And fucking hell I feel bad about that. Because obviously my issues are nothing compared to hers. And mostly I'm just upset because we've been friends for almost 20 years, and I know what her odds are. We're not as close as we used to be, but she's still very important to me. (And again, I feel bad for being upset, because I'M not the one who's sick here!)
I don't know how to keep this from driving me crazy. And that seems incredibly selfish to think about right now. I really have no idea how to proceed with anything.
