Hi,
I've used this site on and off for years for myself, but just now I could really use some advice about a friend.
I think she's probably quite severely depressed but being 500 miles away at the moment it's hard to judge. She says she doesn't feel anything, she just doesn't care. She hasn't showered in four days, she saw her cousin get beaten up and didn't feel a thing and she knows she should but she just doesn't. And I do dimly remember that state, but the point where I was really depressed is all a bit of a blur in my memory. I can't remember if anything anyone did helped or hindered, so I don't know what I should do or not do.
She lives with people who will make sure she eats at least once a day and that kind of thing which I am very glad about, but I'll be seeing her next week and I don't know what's the best thing to do. I know how to deal with intense emotions, but that lack of feeling... I don't know whether to try to pull her out of her head or just let her be.
I just wondered if anyone had any thoughts.
