    You do not sound like a complete bitch to me because I happen to be going through a very similar situation and I honestly don’t know what to do about it. My best friend moved to a town 4 hours away about two years ago but I continue to talk to her every day. She recently broke up with her first “serious” boyfriend (they only dated for a couple months but she claimed to be in love with him and still claims to). Ever since she has been in this state of what I call pure depression. She tells me constantly about all of her different problems and symptoms and how she is doing so horrible. She misses school all the time and she texted me one day that she was on suicide watch. She also tells me all the time about how she doesn’t eat, like ever. Of course I was and still am extremely worried about her, but it’s getting to the point where it’s affecting me. At the risk of sounding like a terrible friend, I just can’t handle hearing how horrible she is feeling all the time when a) there is basically nothing I can do and b) I have some of my own problems that are hard to manage when I hear so much depressing shit from her all the time. Plus, similar to your friend, she gets everything handed to her. Not necessarily by the school, but by her parents. They buy her everything and she just does not care about school, or just can’t focus in school. I do have anxiety, but not like her and not like your friend either. She just seems on a different extreme that I don’t know how to handle. Okay I just ranted a ton as well and probably sounded like a comepletely terrible friend but I just wanted to say that I can relate and you are not
