Thanks everyone for your kind words. I am just going through a rough patch, and it really is good to know that you've 'got my back' (thanks, Karen, that really made me feel a lot better).
I know that when I need them they'll be there for me too, but it just feels really crummy when we're both feeling down and neither one of us can help the other.
This morning is a little better, but I am still really anxious and it is only 10 a.m. Hopefully this will pass. I had vague plans to meet up with an old acquaintance* this afternoon, and I was thinking I might make it my goal to make it happen.
*This is my old roommate who I made the mistake of getting sort-of involved with. I'm thinking hanging out with him might be good to clear the air or it could just be really awkward. We shall see...
