Have you ever been with a friend who is so absorbed with a problem that they are almost not aware of anything or anyone else?
This happened to me recently when my mother was here for the summer holidays. Most of my friends made a huge fuss of her and were interested in her life and what she was up to at present. But one friend hardly acknowledged her when we went round to visit. She was so busy rethinking every detail of her problem that by the time we left I don’t think she even knew my mum’s name let alone a single thing about her.
How does this show up in your hands?
