Best friend taunting me about my condition

My best friend and I have known each other for about 4 years now, but something's seriously bothering me. She's always lying and telling me about something that someone does that she doesnít like, when in reality she's talking about me. She might say, that girl is always complaining and describe something I talked to her about. And then I won't realize it until later when it's too late to bring it up. I donít understand why she isnít direct. This time was the last straw. I had cold sores that I was really self conscious about a few months ago. Now they're gone but she's talking about a guy she met with.. She would not, for the life of her stop talking about how she might have herpes. She wouldn't let it go, she said it like 5 times and kept talking about it when I said I felt she'd be okay. It was obvious she wanted me to tell her about my condition because I feel like she'd be worried about all STDs, not just herpes. I think that's her way of making it clear that she knew, and a bit of a haha, I haven't gotten it. I felt really made fun of and felt like she got a big sense of power over knowing something I didn't want to tell her. Do you think your friends would do this? I donít know if I should stay close with her.

Re: Best friend taunting me about my condition

Welcome, Mia500. I edited your post because we may be read by children.

First, no, friends do not do this to each other.

Second, I also suffer with fever blisters. Every year in school I would get an outbreak the week we did STDs in health class. I hated it. It didn't matter that the health teacher explained the differences. There is no way I could be friends with someone who made that comparison. But that's me.

Your friend does not seem to be good friend material, at least not a good friend to you from what you've shared. Have you asked her directly about her comments?

She doesn't sound like she deserves your friendship
