Got drunk on Saturday and missed half of my best friend’s birthday

You made a mistake and apologized. The fact that you feel so horrible about it shows that you really care about your friend and that you care about not hurting her. Take her out for coffee/or something she would enjoy. And show her that you mean to make it up to her. Our actions speak louder than words. We all get drunk and do dumb things from time to time. As long as we don't do it all the time people tend to forgive and forget. Trust me i have done a lot of stupid things while drunk. And i still have friends. Alcohol also messes with your brain chemistry. It can make a small thing seem really big. Sorry that you are currently going through it, it feels like it will never end, but it does end and things do feel better again. Just take it one day, one hour or 5 minutes at a time. Seems like you care about your friend a lot. And seems like she cares about you too. Just be honest with her and everything will be okay.
Never hurts to stop drinking for a bit! I’ve experienced something very similar to this and I know how bad it feels. Just know that nobody hates you- that’s what I always struggle with when I get hangxiety.
