I panic whenever I see my friend what does it mean?

Posted , 4 users are following.

hi guys umm I am new. I just wanted some advice on what's going on. I recently had a fight with my best friend. Ever since I can't look at her or even just her name without panicking. I can't control it. For most of this year whenever I have been around my friends my chest hurts and I feel sick. I can't really explain it. It's just this feeling of panic that I can't stop.

    Why would they make you feel like that? Do they judge you too much,are they hard to get along with,do they support you when you need them? Do you consider them trustworthy friends that wil be there when you need them? You shouldnt feel uncomfortable about true friends,you have heard of toxic people in a persons life. Are they ? Just trying to figure it out. M ust be some reason.

    Well my best friend kept lying and then started being really rude and mean to me, I have told her we are no longer friends but she won't leave me alone. I understand being upset by the whole thing but I just can't stop panicking when I am around her. And I don't know what to do because she is going to hang around me every day.

      She just makes you feel really uncomfortable because of what happened in the past,hard situation to be in,Im sure I would feel funny if that happened with my best friend and i had to see her all the time. I guess,just speak when spoken to,be civil but back away. Sooner or later things will get better,probably just takes time.

    If I were you I would see a therapist or a psycologist. I kinda feel like that too sometimes, but i think it might just be social anxiety.

    I can relate to some of what you're going through. I recently broke off a 12 yrs friendship because I was having very high anxiety when around her. For me, it was all her drama and problems that she constantly talked about but did nothing about. It caused me a lot of anxiety and I could not deal with it. I apparently am an empathic person and I take on the emotional feeling of those around me. I began to be nervous and anxious anytime she called me or wanted to get together. It has been less than a week and I do feel better, but grieve the loss. You may have these traits or it could be unrelated, but for ME, I have to trust my gut.

      I guess she is close by and still comes to see you or call? Mine came by once, and fortunately I had some family visiting so she did not hang around.  She brought me a letter and a christmas gift which I threw in the trash.  I don't need more of the same.  stay strong.

    hi

    social anxiety isn't nice at all, if you look up anxiety adrenalyn and flight or fight response it will explain it all much clearer that i could, which could be what you are experiancing.take care
