I know this better than most. Mainly because I’ve endured life changing, scary and gut wrenching medical challenges. What you figure out in these times is who is really there for you. So there’s a blessing in that. The people that step up in these times are the real deal. They are reliable. They will be there for you time and time again (no matter how big or small the challenge and amount of support needed).
I am very grateful (lucky) to have an enormous support network. I think of it as lots of mini support groups. First there is my family, they are simply the most important people in my life (and my number one support group). Then there are my best girl friends – I’ve talked about them here before. My work colleagues deserve a mention too. My tribes (blogged about here before) as well. Finally there is the small but very strong group of male friends in my life. Today I want to talk about them.
