Managing Friendships During A Depressive Episode
They can’t come over at a moment’s notice
If you’re in a place when you truly cannot be alone, ask to stay with a friend. Or perhaps stay with your family. Expecting a friend to come over at a moment’s notice when you feel you can’t handle yourself just isn’t realistic, or a safe plan for yourself. Someone can’t really leave work or bail on date night with their partner because you need them to come over.
