DEAR DEIDRE: MY oldest friend has become harder and harder to get hold of. We have been friends since we started school and are now 26.
For years, now, I’ve only seen her only occasionally. She’s only really interested in work and her dog.
She congratulated me when I told her I was pregnant but didn’t ask anything about this or show any interest.
She no longer gets in touch and it is always down to me. I keep texting her but she rarely replies and didn’t come to my baby shower in the spring.
My little boy is now three months old but she didn’t reply when I asked if she’d like to meet him. I haven’t heard from her since.
I feel upset that I have lost a friend and don’t even know why. My husband says I shouldn’t worry – but I can’t let it go.

DEIDRE SAYS: Some of our friendships do come to a natural end and it seems here your lives have diverged.
If your friend doesn’t relate to babies, she maybe didn’t realise how special your invite to meet him was.
You may feel extra- sensitive after giving birth, but do see a GP if there’s a chance you have post-natal depression.
Let that friendship go and focus on friends you will make through your son.
