Please Help ASAP! - March 20th 2010, 07:28 AM

My roommate tonight said that she was going to drive 8 hours to her old home tomorrow morning. She has been very depressed lately and has mentioned that she has had thoughts of suicide. She insists that she does not want to die. I believe that because I, too, am depressed but am not suicidal. She says she needs to get away for the weekend and will be back. I'm afraid that she might get into an accident driving there since emotions affect your driving ability or that she might become so depressed that she will commit suicide. She also has PTSD though she has never said what caused it. However, there is a chance that this vacation would make her feel better. Also, I am unable to tell people here about it because the campus is very unwelcoming to people with mental health issues and almost kicked my roommate last year off of campus because she had anxiety issues. She transferred. I could really use some advice. Please help! Thank you.

Maybe you could offer to drive her back home? Or drive her half way and then have a family member of hers pick her up halfway. I think you should tell her how you feel though and that you are worried. Tell her you are worried she might not be safe driving and see what she says. I don't think you should keep her from this vacation though. I mean if she says she isn't going to die, then it should be okay. But then again, better safe then sorry. Just remember to stay calm because if you don't, she may become upset. Let me know how it goes!


Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.

I hope this post isn't late. But I say, you should talk to your roommate. I say you should spend sometime together in a peaceful place.


I came here to help out, so if you wanna talk or just need someone to bounce ideas or issues off of or something else then send me a message and I will reply as soon as I can.

Okay so I talked to my friend before she fell asleep that night and she woke up and realized that she wasn't able to drive anywhere because of her emotions so everything turned out alright. Thanks for all the advice and help.

That's awesome! Sounds like everything worked out. I'm going to close this thread now since it has passed. If anything new comes up feel free to PM me and I can reopen it.
