Anon or the flying monkeys will find you
well basically for the past few months I have been pretty much down in the dumps. for the reasons of loosing relatives to cancer and alzheimers, along with worrying about my placement ( i had one secured until a few weeks ago then I was let go for no real reason )
I feel some what ashamed that I have been taking this out on some of my friends, rambling at them or just seeking attention. One in particular who has been a very great friend to me has received the brunt of this madness and hasn't told me to leave him alone which is somewhat a testimate to how awesome he is. But now he seems rather cold and a bit indifferent to me, I know I am still his friend but I do not know what damage I have caused to our friendship.
The bridge isn't burnt down but is in need of some structural reinforcements. If that metaphor makes any kind of sense I will be amazed.
Any ideas how I could show that I am thankful for him and my other friends?

How often you speak to him about your problems? The indifference he shows might be him thinking "..here we go again". I mean I'm sure he;s supportive but if someone tells you their problems which are the same day after day it kind of loses it's impact.
If I were you I'd try and cheer up and act as you did before this mess happened, don't bring up the same issues you have with your friends, just be yourself and don't let negative things get to you.

treat them to a night out for some drinks or something they'd enjoy and tell them/explain what you've explained to us

I agree with some of whats been said. Why don't you get together for a few drinks and have a laugh and try and put some of the more heavy issues out of the way for the night.
It will remind this guy why hes friends with you and should help get things going again!
