My husband is currently struggling with friends who have been less than responsive upon learning about his CSA. They struggle with knowing what to do or say. My husband writes them off as uncaring. He doesn't seem to understand that they are relying on him to say what he needs. I know I don't always know and struggle constantly, so who could they possibly know??
It's a give and take. Sometimes it's more give. Sometimes it's more take. Friendships are not always 100% balanced. Sometimes you have to walk a friends through "how to be a friend" in the way that you need it.
Don't give up on your friend. At least, not until you have had a chance to talk with him first.
