First off, please respect the serious tag. Also, please don't tell me it was a mistake getting together with her in the first place given her past, as it doesnt help my situation.
My girlfriend and I have been dating for about 6 months. Things are getting pretty serious, and for the most part, things are great. I care about this girl a TON, we spend a lot of time together, and most of the time, I couldn't be happier.
But when we fight and things get bad, they really get BAD. The other night we got into a very petty argument, which turned into her telling me how much I hurt her over something so small and the whole situation was blown way out of proportion. She told me how worthless I made her feel and even told me she felt like driving on the freeway and closing her eyes and killing herself. This is the 2nd time she has mentioned suicidal thoughts. Now...the bad gets worse
She told me I don't realize how bad I make her feel and one day, I am going to kill her. She said one day, if I keep this up she is going to write a long suicide note BLAMING ME for leading her to kill herself and blaming me for how I made her feel, telling me I am going to have to live with that the rest of my life. I told her "dont ever threaten me like that" and she responded by saying "I just did."
The scariest thing about this is...she has tried to commit suicide before, about 5 years ago and the only reason she is still alive today is because she was found completely knocked out, 911 was called and they were able to pump her stomach in time. I knew about this before we got into a relationship, but she seemed like a completely changed person
I seriously do not know what to do misc. I know this is not a healthy relationship. I don't want to leave the girl because I care about her SO much. I don't want out of the relationship but I feel like I will be stuck in it or face having to live with the consequences the rest of my life. I need to find a way to change something because I can't live and go on knowing that this is always a possibility in the back of my head. Telling her parents isn't going to help because her parents are not the nicest people in the world and don't seem to care much about her (she told me when she woke up from trying to kill herself the first time, her mom told her "you want to die? go ahead and die!"), so that is not going to help. Any advice is greatly appreciated.
-No cliffs...please read entire post. I need serious help here.
