My GF has depression and tends to hurt herself. What should I do? I know for sure her mom triggers her depression. I visit them constantly (its been a year now) and it happens often. I found out her mom also has a mental problem but doesn't want to get help. It gets worse cause it affects the whole family. My GF is afraid to speak her mind and tell her mom what she wants. She's already 22 but unfortunately still living with them cause she needs to finish her course. We are in the Philippines and we have a different setup here. Much as I want to help, I don't think I am in the right position. I have my own job, independent and can live my life the way I want to but when it comes to her and her family, I guess I don't have the right. I really want to help her though. They went to the doctor once but her mom never saw it as a priority. She always finds a reason to cancel appointments. She manipulates everything. She can even make the doctors belive that her daughter is making up stories about her. What should I do?
How is this possible? Internet, no Skype. Not real love, move on.
