She has suffered from her mother's neglect, low self-worth, and crippling depression for months on end now. This friend lives in California, whereas I live in Washington - and I cannot physically be there for my friend whose heart is breaking.

Right now she has a few injuries caused from her job which are taking a toll on her physical and mental well being, and appears unable to seek help for them as she is low-income, and her mother will not take her to any sort of doctor or therapist. She has had many breakdowns now, and I fear she may not last much longer if she is forced to stay where she is. She has no other relatives she can live with that I know of...

One thing I should note, she is painfully shy and will not take action for herself as she fears being a 'burden' to others.

What can I do to help my friend and get her out of there?

Hi,

Please make her understand that she is never a burden to any and most lovable person. Get her some help(counselling, etc), there is a lot of help available just that you have to get in touch. Make her realize shes most invaluable person, she needs a lot of love and someone trust worthy. I would wish and pray for a wonderful positive amazing life for her always. God bless.

Please send your friend this book & read it yourself too, promise it will help!  My experience:   I ended up in a Psyc Unit due to taking pills & feeling hopeless. During my stay there I came across the Best book for depression & hopelessness, better than therapy in my personal opinion. It's not a book that you read once & your "cured."  Although the first reading Did change my life.  It's really a reference book that you re-read & turn back to the pages that impacted you the most on a regular basis for review.  I keep it by my bed & still use is as needed for depression, stress, anxiety etc.  I would highly recommend it to anyone, currently suffering or not:   Feeling Good, the new mood therapy.  By David D Burns, MD. I won't hurt anything to give it a try!  You're worth the effort & you matter!  

Take care!
