Is it possible for a person to have seperation anxiety from their close friends rather than from a parent?

Oh my yes, it is even possible to have it with your pets, or your parents, anything or anyone that makes you feel safe or that you are used to being around and that you have a strong connection with and a strong bond with.

So a friend most definetely.

When my roommate used to leave , I would be lost for hours without her, I had to get on with my life, and try not to be dependent on her presence.

Seperation anxiety is much the feeling a mother has the first time she leaves her new born child. NOt having a child I've never experineced this particular example. But have experienced it with many other aspects in my life. Esp. with my oldest dog. She went to have her hair cut the other day, and I even sent a note with her, they realize that not only I was having it, but so was she and had her done in 2 hours verses the usual 7.

I can relate to this with my last affair.

I felt guilty, yet yurning.

But when we were together afraid of being caught. That is what causes the sickness feeling fmi.

The thoughts weren't so much because I was in love, cuz I wasn't with him, I was with my husband. It was obsessing on the things said, over and over and over in my head. It wouldn't go away til I saw him again, then the guilt, I finally had to make a choice for everyones sake.
