Your thoughts on this would be appreciated.
I have had a good friend for about 15 years. She was originally a neighbour but we have lived in 3 houses since and are now a 2 hour journey apart. We have kept in close contact via phone and text and pre COVID at least, we were meeting up about once a month or so.
Over the years we have shared and supported each other through thick and thin.
About 6 weeks ago she discovered something in her family very distressing, and I suspect she is quite embarrassed about. We exchanged messages for a good hour, she couldn’t talk as she didn’t want her husband to hear. I sent her a text the next morning and she said she hadn’t slept properly, no surprises there but was ok. I phoned the next day and she didn’t answer. I tried phoning everyday for a week and she didn’t answer. I eventually asked by text if she ok and was she ignoring me. She said she was ok but was throwing herself into work and didn’t feel chatty.
Since then she hasn’t answered my calls or messages.
I’m really worried about her and have told her this but I’m also very sad that I seem to have been ghosted. I really miss her, and knowing she is struggling with what started this off.
How should I approach this? Do I continue to send texts to remind her I’m here for her, do I phone regularly, or do I completely leave her alone and hope she makes contact when she feels stronger?
