My girlfriend had a nervous breakdown 3 and a half weeks ago she was Very distant that day (only 1 or two messages when usually we are constantly texting) since then she's been distant we text often but she won't meet and when she does agree to meet up she cancels last minute I've seen her twice since her nervous breakdown 3 and a half weeks ago. She also "blows up" and The slightest comment she never turned up to her followup doctors appointment because she's worried about them taking her son away. I love her and I want to be there to support her but she won't let me. I fear she's going to have another breakdown and don't know what to do.

Welcome to the Forum, MatthewJAJ :) When I read your post, I was wondering what was going on in her life that led to the nervous breakdown. Not knowing that, it's hard to comment. It is unlikely that they will take away her child because of one nervous breakdown. This can either be handled with psychology, talking to a counselor, or one could go the medical route with pills. I'd try talking therapy first. Still, I'd feel better commenting if I knew what happened to her.

She's been through a lot. Work wasn't paying her telling they will pay her next week but never does. She hadn't been paid im over a month. Meaning she was over due on rent bills no food etc. (too proud to accept money from me) her abusive ex had been harassing and threatening her. She has no family was in care from young age those age the main things. Lots of other stress toop. My family says she has too many issues and I should leave her but that's not happening. I love her too much. As I said she just blows up at the slightest comment if I told her she needs help she would. I don't want to loose her. Even if I did tell her it's not something to say by text and she won't meet up with me.
