[More:]So, without getting into too much detail, a friend is having big anxiety attacks. Her solution is to cut all her friends and leisure activities out of her life and focus instead on her hugely stressful, partly-the-cause-of-anxiety-attacks job, because, due to all these anxiety attacks, she's not able to get as much done lately.
Also, she can't tell very many people or get help very easily because of her job (legit, actually, not just paranoia.)
It's very frustrating and painful to watch.
