It is really really hard to wrap my brain around what is happening let alone articulate it all so please forgive me.
My boyfriend of about 2 years, who has threatened suicide before, (although this is the first time I genuinely believe him) just told me he’s been planning on killing himself for three months. He then told me, in detail, exactly what his plan was.
Hes been upset for a long time, ever since we got into different schools and have been having a rocky time together. We’ve broken up a few times but I was under the impression we’d made amazing progress until he had a break down yesterday and got mildly but legitimately physical. His family has a history of depression and other mental illnesses and suicide.
I have no idea how to handle this. I KNOW hes being manipulative but I also think he is serious. I recognize this is an unhealthy relationship I just need advice on how to handle it as it is now. He refuses to go to the hospital and if I call the cops and they send him through emergency he’ll be too broke to go to school and that might make him so depressed he runs off and kills himself in another way. I”m….so confused….I really need calm people to help me make sense, I’m about to lose it.
