ghost,
I'm sorry things are so terrible right now, but please, taking extra Xanax is NOT the right way to deal with it! That can make you really sick, can damage your liver/internal organs, or even kill you. I'm worried about you.

I understand that with all you have going on, there is no energy left to deal with the ex-gf and her father. Out of respect for him and his confidence/need to call you, could you call him back just once and let him know that you are not capable/able/willing/going to help in this situation?

Since he asked for help in a desperate wsituation, it seems only right at least to notify him that you just can't do it. Maybe suggest he call social services, police, etc? That would at least take some of the guilt off of you -- you'd at least KNOW he's not going to rely on you, b/c you told him you're not available to help.

You fell asleep b/c you took too much Xanax, and it's working out of your system. Ditto for why you dropped your phone into the toilet. Taking extra meds will only cause you grief and worry!

Please take care of yourself. People here care about you.

JenStar
