my good friend on mylot is in distress she lives in the states,and I had to call the police from here in Montreal Canada, because I am afraid for her mental health. She just got some really bad news. I am not at liberty to say what it is because I don't want to betray her trust. Now I have to sit and wait. I hope the police will call me back to tell me what they will do. I did what I know I had to do. She is alone in the house by herself. Anything could happen.

The police just left my house. I am so glad I have you in my life. I was here going crazy and could not get it together. i remembered my stress pills and they watched me take it. then they stayed with me till the pills worked and calmed me down. I am not crying and I am doing better. Adrian,is not answering his phone and I am worried sick. he does not want to live anymore. I am worried because I lost his mothers address and phone number somewhere on a piece of paper. I can't call anyone to go check in on him. I feel after taking those pills he may die. he said he is filled with so much regret and just wants his mother to walk through the door. I don't know what to do from here to help him. He is so sad that he was late and could not see his mother before she passed. thanks very much for caring about me. kay will be here soon. She was crying on the phone and was scared as well. I am doing well now after these pills set it. I love you with all my heart. thanks again..

It is good that you don't want to betray her trust. Sitting and waiting is really hard when it has to do with people we care about. The police did call you back cause I read ahead. Hehe Being alone in the house by herself I think that you did the right thing. You never know. Good for you!

If she gets too upset she could call the authorities in the area where he is, sort like what you did, and have them go check. Surely they can find him. If she can calm down enough maybe she can remember someone he talked about or something that she could call. Friends, relatives, favorite hangouts. I wish she could find that paper she had his mom's number and address on. I usually have a hard copy and one online of important info. Well, just thinkin'. Hope he's okay.

It is hard to just sit and wait when you are worried about someone. I am glad you cared enough to call and get someone to check on your friend.

Please you have to be kept in the loop, so you are scared with what she might get into or what might happen to her. If you know of any person close to her that you can also reach on phone to go to her, I think it will go a long way to prevent any problem, as police might delay their coming. Leaving one alone with such an issue is not ideal. Any possible and best step be taken fast. Good luck to your friend

Good call, Winter. Given her history, "d have done the same thing. I would rather risk a friend getting upset with me than possibly doing something to harm themselves. From her response here and another discussion that she started in your honor, I would say that she very much appreciates your help. You are a good friend for her. I know I critisized your advice strongly in another discussion and mainly because I am head strong and strongly believed what I was saying but I have to say that most of your advice to her that I've seen is spot on.

all the advice that I have given her is spot on and she has used everything so she tells me lol. She is okay now that is the main thing. She has gone to Georgia to be with Adrian.

That's so cool! I have been reading through her discussions via my e-mail and unable to respond and I could literally "feel" her distress mounting with her concern over Adrian and not being able to be there for him. It was frustrating to not be able to post and yet honestly, I'd not have known what to say. Like I said, she is very lucky to have you as a friend.

I had a situation when I was here in ON and Hubby was in AZ and an ex of his daughter's was harassing him. I called the cops, so that the idiot wouldn't catch him doing it. Fortunately I had two lines so I could be on the phone with him, and the cops. It all worked out.
