I have felt the course of my orbit shift within the past few months. I have begun to orbit around “Jack”. He and I have been spending a lot of time together. We talk on the phone too and send countless text messages and e-mails.
I have neglected virtually all my other friends nearby. I have been to see friends who have not been well, or who have said they were feeling low. But almost other social events I have pulled out of in order to be with Jack.
I guess it’s mainly because it has seemed of great importance to make the most of this time we have before we tell everyone. As soon as the news breaks, pressure will come. Maybe it won’t be as bad as I am anticipating – it’s just I remember how awful it was before. So it has seemed very important to be with him and to know him inside and out.
