My spouse is now in memory care. We have friends who stayed by our side.
Do I resume friendships with those who made a casual inquiry about our situation?
We’ve been friends for years, but I don’t think they could (or didn’t want to) be involved socially. The irony is I really enjoyed the wife’s company.
It’s not that I feel resentful, but I’m sure she will reach out once they hear he is no longer at home.
As we age, there are fewer friends around, and I don’t want to ignore it.
Am I being petty?
