To be honest I think it was the way her mother was raised that makes her unsupprtive and she's trying. I want to give the mother a chance to help her daughter, but I want to do what's best for the girl.
My concern isn't for anybody else, my concern is for her. If she has expressed herself in a way that makes you concerned about her safety, you need to act about this immediately. If she is in a fragile state of mind, she isn't going to think along the lines of waiting to see how she feels in the morning, she is thinking about how she feels NOW. She needs to see a doctor, and be put onto the right course of tablets. She also needs to seek psychiatric treatment.
I am urging you, that if you feel there is a danger of her hurting herself, to act immediately. There is the possibility that she is just blowing off steam, but there is also the possibility that she means every word of what she says. You may anger her by helping her, she may get very angry with you but this is a small price to pay for helping her with her life.
I'm sorry if I am coming across over bearing and abrupt, but MPD eventually won and I no longer have a Mom. I don't want this girl's mother and father to lose a daughter, or you to lose your friend.
