Text anxiety!

But of a first world problem and I’m fully prepared to be told I am BU and needy but I get so paranoid about friends not texting or calling back! I absolutely convince myself that they have fallen out with me and I’ve done something to upset them, drive myself crazy trying to figure out what! I know this is wrong of me and I should know by now they’re not dropping me they are just busy but I can’t seem to help myself! Does anyone else every feel like this? Or do I need to just get a grip?

OP posts:

Am I being unreasonable?

I have the opposite. I want to reply to texts but I’m so overwhelmed at the moment that I can’t find the right words and I think everything I try to write hits the wrong note and then days go by and weeks and I feel horrible and guilty. I feel like I don’t deserve friends.

I check txt once possibly twice a day, it comes way down my list of priorites but then I don't live life glued to my phone.
