I agree with Sad in AZ. Hopefully nothing happened to her hubby. But I understand how you could be jaded, too!
I did a lot of facebooking at one time. Had a lot of "friends" and kept up on it regularly. Then, one day out of the blue, I just had enough and shut it down. I was forgetting about my real life friends and needed to get back to the real world.
I hope everything is ok with your friend.
