This girl, ... she has greater issues than I can imagine. I just can't stop thinking about her. Im walking and I see her, and shes crying. I want to help. She says shes having a panic attack, and runs upstairs. And sits alone, and crys. She tells me she doesnt want to talk. I dont know what to do. From what I know, this girl has an intense background. She tells me she attempted suicide once. She was placed in a mental hospital. She attempted suicide.... her boyfriend left her. He knew she had major depresion issues. I dont know what it is about her. Shes one of the lowest girls I have seen in a while. Yet, I still see good in her. Shes not thinking about quitting all of her drug usage. But her eyes. What is it that draws me to her. I dont know, maybe I just want to help her. Be her hero. I dont know. Im just a lost soul, trying to figure things out, and piece them together.

if she has a drug problem you will not be able to understand the real person until she has stopped her use as it will be contributing to her behaviour. Its fine to offer friendship, but trying to make clear sense of someone in active use will not get you very far as the picture will change all the time.

she needs professional help first.
