Woman, 48, Colombia: Longtime friend talks only about herself lately

I have had a friend for over 30 years, since senior high school. I have almost always listened attentively to her problems, but lately I have felt that she calls me up to tell me about herself and does not ask me how I am or my family.

Honestly, I am very disappointed. Even though she has been a good friend, she is a very selfish and unthoughtful person. Last year, I was very sick and the doctor recommended for me to avoid bad news or negative people, and subtly I told her about the situation, but after three months she continued calling to complain.

I am fed up with this situation. Should I just ignore her completely and maybe even avoid her from now on? Please help me. What's your advice?

Thank you for helping me out.
