I know from like a psych/ medical standpoint though what it is in general.

How does it make you feel when she has those outbursts? My bf tries to explain and it doesn’t stick with me. Maybe an outside perspective will help me understand.

Like I guess from my reading of that you’re comments were painful to her insome way too whether or not that seems reasonable to you.

My problem with her is that during her emotional outbursts, she's said some painful things to me directly. Even other friends have noticed.
She'd easily called me an idiot, and other bad names, all in the name of, oh, small talk.
Like, oh, don't be an idiot, stop saying stupid things, etc. And mind you, during our time in college, I've excelled at academia so these are very hurtful.

Thanks for your responses Esther, but I've made up my mind. She's dysfunctional.
I know she will contact me, but the tie has been severed.

I'm a type of person that endures, swallows, grudges through the pain, until no more.

I've completely ghosted friends before because it was literally, the last straw that broke the camel's back.

I've just noticed that with my friendships, silence seems to work wonders at getting my point across.

Hopefully it helps you both gain clarity around the situation and all works out for the best, however that would be.

Oh no I was just kinda antsy today anyway lol. I was curious about the outside perspective bc I know my bf gets frustrated when I’m overly emotional but like I should probably just ask him haha.

Thank you though 😊

But you’re right I may have over identified with the friend in the story. Whoops lol.
