Sounds like bipolar based on the highs and lows, but I'm not one to just go around diagnosing people... at least she is in a clinic and hopefully her medical professionals are helping her.

For you, as her friend, I know how heartbreaking and frustrating it is to be helpless on the sidelines, especially when you see her cycle gearing up again for another crash and burn.
Thank you.
I hoped that with her recent parter, who is nice and a good guy in my opinion and the house she bought, she would have some stability and act out less.
Because she would have to with her new responsibilities of a mortgage and shared ownership. The house wasnít very expensive because of the remote location and the state it was in, but she of course immediately took out a bigger loan to make all the renovations perfect. Because she had a steady job as a lawyer at that time for 2,5 years, she got the loan.
Oh, how naive of me.
Now I am worrying how she wants to pay the mortgage. Her partner is a physical therapist who doesnít make lots of money.
Itís clearly not my problem but I must say it to myself a lot.
