I'm tossing up about what to do and wanted a second opinion.
I recently had an ectopic pregnancy. I was very sick and things got a bit scary when my tubes ruptured and I had to have emergency surgery. It was a horrible experience and I was terrified. Everything was pretty rushed and, while I'm sure it was not as bad as it seemed, I was genuinely concerned that I was not going to make it out of surgery (I was highly, highly emotional at this stage and that may have affected my better judgment).
While I was waiting to go into theater I had a few moments to myself to think.
I had a thousands thoughts going threw my mind but one of the things that really hit me was my regrets. I don't have many regrets but the biggest one, and something that really bothered me since, was a few friends over the years who I have lost contact with. They were really important to me when growing up and I don't want to look back in years and still have that regret.
Its been almost four weeks since the surgery and I've been contemplating getting in touch with these people. I just don't know how to go about it or what to say. I don't know whether I should say why i'm contacting them out of the blue - most of them I have not seen or spoken with for over 10 years.
So, I guess what I'm asking is WWYD. If you were in this situation would you contact these old friends and say what has prompted you to contact them?
