Ask Sis Dolly: She's changed

I don't know my girlfriend any more.

She does things I don't understand, she doesn't want to come to my place and she doesn't keep promises. She also fought with her mother and moved out. She didn't want to tell me where she'd moved to, but she phoned to say she's at her uncle's place. I don't know what to do.

Sis Dolly answers:

It sounds to me like there's a problem here. One reason for this type of change in behaviour could be mental illness. Another reason is alcohol or drug abuse. The reason I say this is because it seems like a sudden change that's not consistent with how she usually behaves. If you can find her, go and get a sense of what's happening with her. At least when you see her, you'll be able to describe what she's doing and saying and be able to get her the help she needs. Determine if it's something you're able to deal with while supporting her. If possible, chat to her mother, if she's someone you can talk to. The two of you can put together a strategy to help your girlfriend.

Find Love!
