Because I’m not the one that wants to end my life. My Girlfriend just called me 20 minutes ago and said she was getting ready to jump off a local bridge thats about 120 ft high. She hasnt picked up the phone since that call. I only hope she was bluffing, but she has brought this up more and more over the last few monthes, including one failed attempt with Valium where I had to take her to the hostpital and have her stomach pumped. When they told her they were going to put her in a phychriatric ward she flipped out and had me sneak her out of the hospital.
She’s a big drinker too, doesnt do drugs ( well pot here and there ) and she has been very depressed lately mainly because she doesnt have a job and I support her fully. I live in Central America and the suicide hotlines down here are non existent for the most part. I really don’t what to do , or how to help her. Recently she totaled my car ( drunk driving ) and it really set us back finacially. She swears she learned her lesson , but continues to drink on a nightly basis, even though she doesnt drive anymore.
I recently caught her cheating on me also , although I don’t she knows I know, but maybe she feels guilt about that. I believe she must be bi-polar due to her drastic mood changes. One minute she loves me with all her heart and the next I’m a p.o.s. This goes on every day. I love her soo much and we have been together for 6 years, but She just doesnt love herself at all. I also recently found out she is bulemic and it was a secret she kep from everyone since she was 15 , shes 30 now.
What should I tell her ? What advice can I give ? Should we seek help and from whom ? I really think one of these days Im gonna come home from work and expirence my worst nightmare – finding her dead. I dont what to do , any advice would be greatly appreciated …
