Why won't she talk to me anymore?

My close friend for over 3 years is distant lately. I stay in touch but she hardly gets back to me. And it's usually a day or two after I send her texts if she does. I don't want to seem pushy or needy, and I've told her that, I just worry because I know the last year has been tough for her. As her marriage seems to get worse, she gets more withdrawn. I know her and her husband fight, I can hear them screaming at each other. I tell her anytime she needs a visit or break. Bring baby and come over. I miss my friend and I feel it's not getting better.

Just keep being her friend. She will realize that you care and will probably need you if her marriage is bad. It feels like rejection but, it isn't. Good luck!

Why don't you ask her? Oh wait, nevermind she's not talking to you.

I got nothing other than depression.

 Just keep reaching out, she may be at a bad time and will need you soon.

Sounds like depressions and time for herself to me. But I had causal friends who I don't talk to anymore. 1 I found out that they r lying to me about something, 2 self center and everything have to be "me me me" 3 talk about nothing but their kids 4 bragging and bragging, about her husband getting his doctorate degree made me want to brag about my MD husband too but I'm trying to be humble so I stopped talking to her so I don't have to hear her brag. Lol

Like everyone else says, just continue to be there.

Are you concerned at all about abuse? Or are they pretty mutual fights?

This. Let her know you're available whenever she's ready too talk.

I will. We have a close relationship. I'll alway be there. It's tough knowing she's going through something and I can't help. Or she doesn't want me to know? I believe her husband is verbally/mentally abusive. Not physical. But that isn't ok either. I know she can yell back, but she just wants to avoid fights.
