Friends....How many of us have them?

friend
noun
1.a person whom one knows and with whom one has a bond of mutual affection, typically exclusive of sexual or family relations.


Where exactly do adults find friends? 
I mean as an child, you find a see another kid on the playground with the same pink sneakers you have and you ask them if you want to play.....And its instant friendship

But as an adult, certainly as a woman, where do you go or what do you do (without looking like a uber creep)to find a friend? I mean where do women over the age 25 go to foster lasting platonic relationships with other women?

As professionals,you spend lots of time with coworkers who often make connections with but also as professionals, you can't really open up as your true self.

There are former love interest,they often know you best, but this could open the door to complications with present lovers.

Or the friends we have had forever, the ones who have one more harm than good to us, but we keep them around in attempt to be loyal....


Do we forever rely on toxic 'friendships',or remain social hermits for the rest of our days?

While I don't have all the answers ,or maybe any some days, I have my story
On February 19th at 12:30pm, I had 19cm/ 3.06 pound fibroid and 8+ pounds of excess skin removed in the same 6 hour long procedure.... Days later I had to have 2 blood transfusions due to the loss of blood in surgery and after.  Apparently things got scary (I didn’t know,I had a TON of morphine in my system ).

Chapter 6 .....Silvia

And just like that.... I had a date.

The scramble began, I had to cram 6-8 weeks of recovery plans in a matter of 10 days....

Oh, and  I mention this is my final semester of my degree?
So yea on top of working full time, trying to navigate through my interpersonal relationships,  and processing whatever is about to happen, I had to navigate what this could possibly look like for the last of my education.

I was extremely emotional at this point and probably closer to my breaking point that what I honestly wanted to admit..........
I was scared.
Scared of the pain, the recovery, the incision, hell how my body would look and feel because I had honestly just adjusted to the initial weight loss and of course dying.
While both procedures are fairly simple, its rare that they are done together....So I had no clue what to expect but that I was going to be in pain...
I got my tribe together for surgery/recovery plans, bought plenty of wine (they like red wine),and started really proc…
