I am sorry to hear about the

I am sorry to hear about the problems with your friend. A betrayal by someone close can certainly be painful and traumatic. Unfortunately there is no magic cure for certain pain except for time. If you experience severe anxiety you might be helped by anti-depressants or there are techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) that can help you deal with anxiety. Even learning certain breathing techniques can help depending on the severity. Treating traumatic stress is best done by a professional and involves relieving the moment via CBT, but a broken friendship doesn’t generally cause PTSD in the clinical sense.

If the friendship ending was this traumatic you likely had anxiety problems before it even happened. So if you have anxiety problems in the first place seeing a psychologist to get assessed and then treated via CBT or seeing a psychiatrist to get anti-depressant medication is a good place to start.

Unfortunately there is nothing you can do to make your friend be considerate again. The more you try and make them normal again, perhaps the worse it will be. I know it is tough, but the best thing you can do is move with your life and find new friends. Even if acting disinterested causes them to want to be friends again, you may want to reconsider as it sounds like this person maybe isn’t the type of person you want to be friends with anyway.

Best of luck,
