gusdet Posted May 7, 2013 Report Share Posted May 7, 2013 My best friend suddenly lost her father about 6 months ago. Due to our bond, it was pretty rough for me at first (I still get sick thinking about it), but these past 6 months have been infinitely more rough for her and all I want to do is help her get through this, but I am not sure what to do. A little background- she started her first full time job in July and then her father passed away right before Thanksgiving. Since Thanksgiving her mother has been making her come home every time she has off of work (I should specify that her mother is in her early 50's and not handicapped and is able to take care of herself... thankfully home is only about 1 hour from where she lives and works). Lately she has been telling me how worn out she is from never getting a break and she has been starting to become withdrawn. I have suggested that she talk with her mother about how worn out she is and that she needs some time to herself. I have also suggested that seeing a grief counselor may help. With the first suggestion she said that her mother yells at her when she tries to stay at her own place when she has time off. And then to my second suggestion she says that not only does she not want help from a counselor, but that because she never has time to herself, she can never see a counselor. I am just so insanely worried about her and I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any good suggestion? She is my best friend and I fear that she is going to burn out. I really appreciate it.
