My friend suffers from depression and I feel very sorry for her. But recently I have got to the end of my tether. I arrange to meet her and then, at the last minute, she cancels, either making excuses or saying she's being pursued by the 'black dog'.
Over the past six months we've made five plans to meet and on three occasions she has cried off. Last night was the worst as I'd asked other people round to meet her specially, then got a text saying "something's come up". I feel so sorry for her but get fed up being so often disappointed.
Yours sincerely, Helen
