this acctually happened to me and my friends. I just wanted to get this off my chest
(#) XxPerfectTomorrowxX 2011-12-20 04:05:43 AMI believe I've heard similar stories before and it's beyond me why anyone would lie about cancer. That's an awful, low thing to do. My mother has cancer. It's something serious... For someone to make it up to get sympathy, friends, attention, etc... is ridiculous.
She was a really close friend of yours though for more than just the 'cancer', I hope so you need to evaluate just why you were friends with her to begin with and if that's enough to stay friends through a major lie like that. Also you need to talk to her because she needs to know that a lie like that is not harmless and has harmed you, and your other friend. If you chose not to be friends with her in the future (I wouldn't really blame you) then don't allow yourself to feel guilt over it.
She got herself where she is, not you.

You need to talk to her, is she worth being friends with after what she put you through? and if not then by no means should you feel guilty, If so maybe you should find out why she lied, it might make things a whole lot easier and allow you to get past this.
Cancer is an awful thing to lie about, both my aunts had it (thankfully they recovered)and my friend's mum is now fighting cancer for the second time. However if your friend does apologize and truly wants to make amends i hope it all works out for you.
Author's responseI Haven't cut in a LONG time. Even though I've wanted to I haven't. I honestly don't know. If I do become friends with her again I know I won't be able to trust her. I just don't want to see her on her own. I've tried finding out why she lied she "doesn't know" which to be honest I think is bullshit. As it says in here I lost my grandad over the summer to cancer and my best friend lost her grandad last year.
Thanks for saying that. I hope your friends mum recovers.
I hope it works out too. For her sake.

I still don't know why she tags along with us though. My parents have told me to still be decent to her because she must feel like shit. But I don't want to forgive her.
She put us through hell and she still hasn't apologized so why should we forgive her?
Sorry just annoyed
Author's responsei know how you feel.
