Wow

Ok this is a long post, nothing to do with finances but I have to get this out.

Ok I am at work and did not notice my phone ringing. I see a text from my boyfriend "Call me 911" I try calling him no answer. Then I notice I have a missed call from his daughter. I call her she sounds as though she is crying, she answers and says " that's ok I got him/it" I wasn't sure, so I ask are you ok she says yes. I hang up but I am still feeling a little uneasy so I try calling both of them again and no answer.

Finally my BF calls back and tells me K (his daughter) tried killing herself and slit her wrist and that he was on his way to the hospital near my job. Because I just started I am afraid to leave I tell my co-worker and she advises me to leave and I did.

Get to the hospital both he and her are pulling in behind me. Where is her mother I wonder. I give her a hug and ask whats the matter, she begins to cry I leave her alone and don't push the issue and upset her more. Thank God the wombs are superficial.

My concern is mom never shows and then we find out through her counseling session at the hospital that she did this on Sunday; mom, mom's BF, moms sister and her baby sister all knew and no one has contacted Dad---my BF.

My BF tries contacting his ex wife who yells at him for calling and states that she will deal with K later. My first response is frigging later? Are you frigging kidding me? This is a serious issues, obviously she is crying out attention from mom who still isn't giving her the attention she is seeking...my God, I have no kids but where is the motherly bond, instincts etc that I always here about?

Long story short the hospital discharged her, she insisted on going back home (which I thought was a bad idea) but dad did not want to upset her any more so allowed it. I talked to her today, she sound ok but counseling will start the first part of the week

Things are looking up
