Grieving the loss of my friendship with my best friend!

Question: My best friend and I had a fight 2months ago and she moved to States without even bothering to tell me about it. She has stopped all contact and I feel like I have lost my closest friend. Everyone tells me it’s not like she died but I still feel as though, I’m grieving the loss of my friendship ‘coz I don’t think I’m ever  going to find another friend like her ever again. Am I overreacting? No one gets it. I just feel really sad. Help! Teentalker , 17-year-old
