Do you ever not respond to friends because you feel like you can’t and then they keep texting and it goes on too long

and at this point you’re riddled with guilt and you’ve ignored texts saying like “please let me know if you’re ok” and you have no idea what you’re supposed to say because nothing you say will excuse you just shutting everyone out for a week?

I think most people can relate, on some level, to losing touch with those around them when they're feeling unwell. I would hope your friends of all people would be forgiving of that.
Yep 😬 I've done that many times over the years resulting in many lost friendships. Such is the nature of being mentally unstable. In the end I just cut everyone off because it was easier than managing expectations. I don't recommend that strategy though, unless you're able to be happy without friends.

i'm the one texting incessantly. Being cut off from my friend makes me very anxious. I know about their mental health struggles so when they're not keeping in touch it is extremely worrisome for me. :(

@Buildingadoor it makes me sad that I might be worrying my friends like that but I’m just doing the best I can.
We all should be allowed to shut out the world once in a while. If they're real friends they'll understand.

The noise of the world can sometimes be disabling..
