Obviously just hanging out with me is too much. I'm feeling like a burden
Maybe he/she is feeling confused and low too But I'd say not making assumptions is the best.
It's hard to know what to say to someone who's sad. And unfortunately, it's virtually never the right thing. Try to be patient with the friends who are there for you, even if not able to give you everything you need.
That's the thing - she's not there for me. We had a huge fight during my last depressive episode and made up last week. And we talked about ways she could help me. Her request was just to tell her loud and clear if I need help.
So I did. I didn't need help, I just wanted company for a little while. To watch movie or something. Just to not be alone
Aw, I'm sorry. Maybe, as Fatima said, she's struggling too? I don't know...I do know how hard it is to not have anyone there when you need them!
I know that she is stressed because of her job. But in her reply she made it about me, that she didn't know how to help me, even though I didn't ask for help. She could answer that she's busy or wanted to be alone or something else.
And now I feel like she wants to be friends only when I'm “normal”
