Fair trigger warning: <mod edit - methods> mental hospital, suicide, self-harm Hello, My girlfriend and I are 20 and 19 respectively, we are both in college and have been dating for almost 4 years. She has her cons but plenty of pros. She's the love of my life. But she's struggling. In middle school she started to become depressed. Her stepmom was never the greatest parental figure and her dad, who she thinks is the coolest (and I do too), is gone half the year because he works offshore. That I know of, she has attempted twice. Once in early high school by <mod edit - method>, and one Junior year by <mod edit - method>. She wanted to <mod edit 0 method> But halfway through it she thought of me and stopped. I'm deathly afraid she's going to try again. After high school everything crashed for her. She didn't see me much over the summer, and grew more and more depressed, and wasn't sleeping well, and toward the end of the summer, right after school started, she told her stepmom she was going to <mod edit - methods>. Her dad was offshore at the time and heard about it so he came home temporarily. I didn't want them to but they took her to a local mental hospital and checked her in. I believe she was there for 4 days or so. I took off work and went with her stepmom to pick her up. She was happy as could be; I'd never seen her so cheerful. They prescribed her 2 medications for her conditions: one for her depression and one for insomnia. They helped. But the depression meds were a mood stabilizer, so she wasn't sad, but she usually wasn't happy either. Anyway, things started to pick up for her. Even though she had to skip the first semester of college she started to grow happier. She got a job with me. But at the start of this year things went downhill again. She lost the job and grew greatly bitter toward my bosses, and she wishes I didn't work there. Her mom's growing mean. Her little brother, and her stepmom's only biological child, is spoiled and punky and yells at her, even though he knows what's going on. She is ready to try again. I text her as much as I possibly can but she mostly responds with "?", "K", "Nothing", and short answers in general. She sounds like she's going to <mod edit - methods> next time. I can't lose her. I don't know what to say or how to help. I only know what not to do. What do I do?
