I agree with the others...time & space. And definitely go see her. I went through this a couple years ago - best friend told me he never wanted to talk to me again, it was over, etc., etc., It's very easy to say those things over email, or even the phone. I popped over to his house one day & all was forgotten. It was just, "Hey, what's up? Wanna go do something?"
You've gotta figure, your bud's going to realize that she's going a bit overboard. Someone will ask her, "Hey, how's Kitty doing?" And she'll say, "I don't know, haven't talked to her - we kinda had a falling out." And that person will ask, "Really, over what?" And she'll have to say, "Well, she didn't call me back once. She got super busy with school & didn't return one of my phone calls." Hopefully it will dawn on your friend how over the top that sounds, or the other person will point it out to her: "Really? Haven't you guys been friends since 3rd grade? And you're mad cuz she didn't call you back once?" Even more likely, your friend will figure it out for herself.
I don't think "outsiders" realize how stressful & lonely nursing school
can be. I'm guilty of being inconsiderate to my friends d/t school, then calling them up in the middle of the night to vent on them about how stressed I am, or how I think I failed a test, or whatever. Most of them realize it's a temporary thing & that I'll make time for them once the chaos of school is over with & my life returns back to normal.
Good luck. Keep us posted!:icon_hug:
