CelesteSeven Posted February 6, 2007 Share Posted February 6, 2007 I think my roommate may be suicidal. She was always the smart one in highschool... got A's without much studying; learning just came real easy for her. But now this is her 2nd year of college. She did fine her first year, but her brother committed suicide over the summer (and that was a huge production) and a shock to her. Last quarter, she did really bad. She failed 2/3 classes; she said she couldn't concentrate. And she didn't party; she'd study and study and still failed. Now this is the new quater and she's on academic probation. We're halfway through the quarter, and she has 2 exams this week. 1 of them being physics. She's sure she's going to fail; she has a really hard time even though she goes to the tutors (and goes to all of her classes). I know she got a D on her one bio midterm, but there are a few midterms so she thinks she can still do ok in that class. But if she doesn't get AT THE VERY LEAST 2 c's and a b, she's dismissed from the university. And she thinks it'll be the end of the world. So today, she was real quiet, and i think she was crying (but she keeps her emotions to herself and doesn't discuss them). She was real quiet all day and seemed more depressed than usual, BUT THEN SHE DID SOMETHING REALLY STRANGE: she started going through all of her stuff and packing things away. I mean everything. She packed all of her books away, her pictures, everything. And I know for sure she isn't just dropping out and moving back home. Could she be suicidal? Quote Link to comment
