I have a neighbor, to my right with whom I like being friends. She and her daughter are acquainted and have spent a lot of time with the neighbor to the right of me, of whom I was told is a hardcore drug addict. Yesterday, my friend asked me to stop over. Bobbie, whom has the substance abuse problem was there. I felt very uncomfortable in her presence. I was sitting at my friend Denise’s kitchen table, when Denise’s daughter, Melissa and Bobbie came out of Denise’s bedroom. Bobbie stood practically right behind me. I was wearing my crossbody bag and was becoming nervous. This morning, I woke up thinking about this situation. I finally concluded that I would tell my friend Denise that I will not come over unless Bobbie is no where around. This morning, Denise asked me to come over. She told me that she wants nothing to do with Bobbie and neither does Melissa. Denise told me that Bobbie told her to “watch me”, and proceeded to tell Denise that I am spreading my friend’s business all over the buildingnoth to do which is entirely untrue, and Denise knows that. I am on the receiving end of mega drama, and am in the process of weighing out whether or not I should continue in my friendship with Denise. I really like having Denise for a friend. She has been clean for four years. People try to label her as a drug addict, but to the best of my knowledge, the only medications she takes are the ones of which she is prescribed. I have no reason to think otherwise. I stick up for her, when people try to call her a drug addict, b/c she and I are very good friends. Denise told me that I am her best friend, and that I am the only tenant in this building that she can trust. I hate to just throw this friendship out the window. She said that she is no longer allowing Bobbie to come into her home. That is on Denise’s end. That is entirely up to her, but I want nothing to do with Bobbie.
