I'm sorry you're going through all of this. You're a great friend and you care a lot about her. I agree with the others. You've tried everything you could to help her. Please don't blame yourself :hug:

Midnight this is a toxic relationship. This person is abusing and taking advantage of you. Please do what you need to do to take care of yourself. Don’t feel guilty for putting this person off. She is asking too much of you, she is not taking care of herself by seeking out appropriate supports and her behavior has become abusive in nature. You have to take care of you. You can run a draft email by me if you want to. Just pm me. xo, j

thanks Zoe, friend said sorry, i asked her to promise that when she gets suicidial thoughts she will reach out to real life mental health places, i think thats better for her than coming to a forum, cause, like me, a forum cannot keep her safe in real life :hug:

she not responded yet

I don't think there is any real life help where she lives Midnights

they are very homophobic there
so probably have nothing in mental health

I found a article about a mental health support line thing that the country she is in started a few years ago, I sent it to my friend so she has something, I don't know the number of it but she's got more educations than i have so is able to find out at her end what the number is (cause google is being unhelpful about it)

its the right way to go, but I don't think they are very good there the helps
I read some stuff about homophobia there
and sending patients to religious leaders for help

which is why she might need help from international organisations

you able to say what country it is ?
