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?

WWYD - Reconnecting with Old Friends

I would contact them again but probably wouldn't go into details of why I was wanting to get back in touch with them. I would just say that a few things have happened lately that had me thinking of how much I missed our friendship and would liked to get that back, or something along those lines. Good luck.

If you really want to re connect then yes go for it - life gets in the way sometimes and you do lose touch - just be honest and call them and say something like " I've been thinking about you lately and really missed our friendship and I know it's been a while but id love to catch up for a coffee if you are free "

My Dad's high school best mate just died. Dad had not spoken to him in over 10 years. He had considered getting in touch several times but never did. He really regrets it now. I think there is nothing to lose in trying to reconnect if that is what you want. Good luck!
