Cristina I think that she feels 'guilty' because of the vow they all made, but at the same time it also feels oppressive. In the end, as Joanne or someone points out, maybe they're not such good friends after all, if they can't share something like this with each other, because the expectations they have for each other have become stronger than they can actually bear.
