    I thought I finally had some true friends,

    but they are leaving me one by one. They don't even have enough respect to tell me to my face. I heard through a mutual friend why another friend left. He said there's no hard feelings. Really? I feel like I'm at the end of my rope and nowhere to turn to. No one believes I feel...
