Being an INFJ (or any other type) should not be confused with mental health issues.

I can provide weirdly specific advice on this. Speaking as an ENTP with an INFJ friend who I also have a great, special connection with (at least, as far as I can tell) who also plays Genshin coop with me and often leaves me unread (or read) for a day or two. Since me and most of my other friends are extroverted and socially very comfortable I’m not used to being ‘ignored’. So I have been hurt and confused by it in the past, but now I know her well enough to know she’s frequently overwhelmed and her downtime isn’t ‘free time’ but a necessary isolation to recover from burnout. So I just wait, and she always gets back to me eventually. We have a great friendship, but there’s times where it’s been tough. I know it’s probably hard for you to be totally direct about it, but you can help them understand that your introverted nature and tendency to be overwhelmed means you need to go into hiding sometimes (not just from them but generally) I’ll also add that gaps in a friendship are not a bad thing, and if you have as much of a bond and trust as you seek to think, you will NOT lose it, even if you don’t talk for a month or more! If your ENTP friend is being needy and begging you to play together then that’s unhealthy behaviour and it’s understandable that it’s stressing you out. You’re not responsible for all of their fulfilment and they may need to find other friends to help pass the time.. Just some thoughts
