Ok, so I've been friends with this girl, Kayla, for about a year. She's an awesome person, really fun, all that. What worries me is that there's just this extreme sadness about her. You look at her, and she can be smiling and acting like she's have a good time, but you can still see that inside she's upset. I wouldn't say she has an alcohol problem, because it's hardly that she gets drunk every night, but she goes out most weekends and gets stoned and/or drunk. She lives with all guys, and there are rarely any females in the group when they all go out, which is worrying seeing as I really wouldn't trust any of those guys. She's really a pretty girl, and gets a lot of male attention. While that's nice in most situations, when you're drunk/high, you don't always make the wisest decisions.. Kayla hasn't had the best of past, I know that much, but she won't elaborate any farther. The farthest we ever got in a conversation about it was "...they weren't things I chose..." and "I don't want people thinking I bring things on myself, so I won't talk to anyone." I know for a fact she's cut before, I'm not sure if she still does. I'm fairly certain that plays in with her past. I do know that she left home when she was sixteen because of something with her parents (she's 27 now), which may still bother her. I don't know about the relationship with her dad, but her and her mom don't really talk. Oh, and another thing she said when we were talking a few days ago was that she busted out in tears just the other day while sleeping with this guy? I don't know what that means, but it doesn't sound good..thoughts? So what would you do in my situation? Let her go on living a potentially dangerous lifestyle, or confront her? I've told her she can talk to me whenever, but I know she won't. It's just really sad for me to see such a fun person suffering like this.. Huge thanks in advanced. Just wanted to add that she was diagnosed with PTSD (Post-traumatic stress disorder) in February...a clear indication that something is very wrong..
