Mornin' penis people....just have to get something off my chest here...sort of relates to 'bromance' and drama queens... any advice is appreciated. I know we live in stressful times, as this is the first 'real' recession many of us under 45 have been through in our adult lives. Personally, I am holding onto my job by my fingernails and take it day by day. My problem is that some of my close friends..men and women who have been reasonable and supportive for years and years.....are going totally batshit on me :frown1:. It is getting to the point where I dont want to turn on my cell phone, and when I do, I have at least 10 drunken or psycho voicemails and text messages from my friends whinning/complaining/bored/professing their love...bemoaning the lack of love/depressed, etc. We all go through stuff...and I want to be a good friend: but some of these people are so high up on the cross its not funny.... and reasoning with someone who has been drinking since the crack of noon is like trying to herd cats. Like I said, this is not just one or two people...this is like... ten of them. If this was just a casual acquaintance I would just drop them...but these are long-term friends. I have tried to listen, but after a while their arguments get circular; and any advice is shot down with "you just dont understand"..yet they go on and on and on and on and on Thanks for reading this...its been eating at me for the past couple months, but seems to have gotten really bad since the holidays. Anyone else dealing with this?
