Have you ever had a friendship that began as a give and take friendship and then became one-sided?

I’ve got one of those right now. Someone I considered a good friend knows next to nothing about my life & I know everyone about that person’s life. I’m not sure how it happened – although it’s been gradually getting to this point for a couple of years.

During the past month, I’ve probably spoken to this person for 10 hours and I’m not sure that they have any idea that I’ve been having a hard time with the whole “visitation & the XH & wondering if I was alienating the kids” thing. I tried to mention it, but the subject was quickly diverted back to the other person & whatever that person needed to talk about at the moment. This friend knows about DD & the diabetes diagnosis, but not much else about what’s going on in my life.

I’m not sure if I should just interrupt & blurt things out or just let things continue. It’s tiring.
