  • Mood:

they'll be there for you

Wow, I've been in post mode lately. But I just had to share this news story off BBC Health:

Friends 'help people live longer'

Researchers in Australia found evidence that having close ties to family doesn't affect length and quality of life, but having a network of friends and acquaintances does.

Fascinating implications for importance of "family of choice" vs. "family of origin" IMHO. I hope to see more research and reports on this topic.
