My daughter's boyfriend of two years just broke up with her...you may think that happens everyday and she will get through this but it is complicated. Right before they went off to school last year he hit a little boy on a bicycle and killed him. It was an accident and no charges were pressed. He went to counseling twice and said he was okay. He struggles every fall and here is what is going on now: He is a good athlete and cannot perform at the level he used to, he chewed his fingernails so much that they got an infection, and he broke up with my daughter because he doesn't feel the same. I think he has PTSD and is struggling. I want to support them both. Someone told me that he was damaged goods and she would be better off without him. I feel he needs help. My husband thinks this is an excuse and that he just used our daughter. I really need advice...this is eating me alive.
