Two weeks before I was diagnosed with panic disorder, I fully pushed my friends away and lost all of them. I was having 4-5 panic attacks a day and it was so tiring and I was ready to give up. Couldn’t work, drive, sleep, sometimes eating was hard. After a week of the attacks I finally tried to open up to my bestfriend of 6 years about how I was feeling because I really didn’t want to lose her and she told me i was making a big deal out of nothing then compared her life stressors to mine and then told me all I ever do is talking about my self and she just seemed disgusting by me as a person. I was already going though so much, and then This just made my heart literally break. I feel so alone, I have no one to call or text but at the same time I feel like being alone is best because now I feel like I might not actually be a good friend.

    I am so sorry this is happening to you. You do not seem like a bad friend at all, and having that much stress put on you is hard to deal with by yourself. When trying to reach out, your friend instead tried to make you seem like a bad person. These are signs of a very toxic relationship, and I know it's not easy, but it may be better to break things off with her. And aside from that, you should maybe see a doctor for your panic attacks or reach out to someone about it who's willing to listen and do something about it. You ARE going through something, and it IS a big deal. Never let anyone make you feel otherwise or compare your situation to theirs. I hope you can find help or find someone to talk to. If you can't speak to anyone, I am always open to talking if you want to. I hope your situation gets better, so sorry for what you're going through. ❤️

      I am currently talking to a therapist and on I’m medication, and we just stopped taking. Haven’t talked her her since that day. It’s just been on my mind. Thank you so much for your comment. It really means a lot to me❤️

    Hi. First off, I’m so sorry you’re going through this. Having a mental disorder does NOT make you a bad friend. A lot of people don’t understand what anxiety/panic is if they’ve never experienced it but that doesn’t mean your friends couldn’t try to learn about it or sympathize with you. Honestly staying away from these people seems like the best bet right now. Focusing on yourself and learning how to cope with your disorder would be a great way to distract yourself from all the negativity.
