She had a cough, she claimed she had symptoms of the coronavirus but she was really over exaggerated, she was coughing, screaming, crying like saying she can't do it she can't do it and coughing more on purpose really badly but really it was a mild cough. She got tested negative for the virus in the end. The other day though we were walking back to my car then I think her heel fell of or something and she dived on the floor. She was screaming and crying on the ground saying she needs to go to hospital but she was fine, I could tell, for starters when she eventually got up and walked off she was fine but before she fell she was crying shes broken her ankle or something and it took like 40 minutes till she got up. All that happened is, I think she tripped over a curb in her heels and that's another thing I don't understand why she was wearing heels when she knew she'd be walking. She walks 30 or 40 minutes to work and wears heels which I dont understand how she does the but ok, she seems to wear heels for everything and she doesn't drive so she walks around pretty much everywhere in heels.

Anyway im getting a bit stressed with her, my friend was saying welcome to relationships mate and people just tell me having a gf is stressful. I don't say anything to her about it because I think she would scream at me about it, when she was overreacting about the heel thing I was just there comforting her and I helped her. Its just this relationship is really stressing me out but I love her so much and my mum loves her.

Just talk to her, see what’s causing her the distress, ask her what you can do to help. Communication is the best thing


Does she have anxiety? Health Anxiety can cause you to think the ‘littlest’ symptoms are worst case scenario?

Do you think she just wants more attention, as a girl i feel like that could be why?

Usually when faced with words like ‘overreacting’ people tend to get defensive as it has negative connotations. Open questions that allow her to share her authentic thoughts might work? Then at least you’ll know what’s on her mind when she acts this way.

I mean, some of us do get a bit like that but it depends, have you been distant with her whilst she did these things? As in the natural response to a person falling would be the second person to coddle up and comfort them. Just saying though, i'm no relationship expert :/

Authentic thoughts = true, unfiltered thoughts. Just give her the chance to be honest... look at it more like you’re checking in on her than confronting her.
Confronting makes people shut down. Whatever she’s doing this for, whether it’s for attention or anxiety or whatever, she’s unlikely to be straight up about it unless she’s given the space to

Hmmm, do you think anything happened recently in her life that would lead her to over exaggerate? Sorry i'm just running on my general knowledge here.

Possibly something personal or something like that???

Ah, I see, well I guess you should try what the other guy said about the authentic stuff then YK, and before judging her or anything let her open up about her side of the situation, I humbly wish you the best of luck!
