<p class=”p1″><span class=”s1″>My girlfriend and I were together for 7 months. We have great chemistry, can talk for hours even after the goo-goo-Gaga phase was over. We share similar interests and goals for our future. My biggest issue with our relationship is I tend to brush off things she sometimes says and to avoid conflict, I ignore her until she’s no longer talking about the topic. I’m conscious of it but I can admit I still do sometimes. We have broken up once due to petty arguments we both could’ve handled differently. She was in a wreck some months back and as a result she was being treated for a couple months. She was recently given the ok to come home. We rekindled how we felt. Two days after her being home, she starts randomly sending me a bunch of texts and calls out of nowhere. One of the calls I answer and it failed. She shows up to my house acting crazy. Then between later that night and Sunday she sent me 15+ texts. I was so suffocated, so I broke up with her. Just today, I text her about sending her back her stuff, but her sister instead texts back. Her sister tells me that my girl is in the hospital again for cardiac arrest. She had been wrongfully prescribed antidepressants in near fatal dosages. Her sister said she had become very anxious, argumentative and mean. For those who know her, know that’s spicy, but warm and goofy. She may argue with me here and there but nothing like what had just happened. Her sister informed me she had become unlike herself to everybody and having manic episodes and now cardiac arrest due to the high dosage she was given. Her sister asked if I noticed mood swings and erratic behavior and that’s when it clicked! Now I feel like shit for breaking up with her and telling her to please stop texting me. She literally was not in control of this craziness and not how I know her to be. How do y’all think I should proceed </span></p>May 22, 2019 at 5:59 am #295067
“I tend to brush off things she sometimes says… I ignore her until she’s no longer talking about the topic… (later) she shows up to my house acting crazy… sent me 15+ texts.. I broke up with her… Her sister tells me that my girl is in the hospital again for cardiac arrest.

My answer: call the hospital and verify that she is indeed hospitalized there. If she is, visit her, bring flowers, be kind. Check while in the hospital and verify that she has indeed suffered a cardiac arrest.
It is a possibility that her sister lied to you, maybe at the request of your ex girlfriend, so to cause you to worry. You ignored her while in the relationship, then you broke up with her, she is angry, tells her sister to tell you she had a heart attack, so that you don’t ignore her, so that you will undo the breakup.
I never heard of a cardiac arrest happening as a result of taking too much antidepressants, never heard of such a thing as a fatal dose of anti depressants (I am not a doctor, a nurse or a pharmacist).
If you get more information, please post again and I will reply further.

I would be concerned for how she may turn around at this point. Wouldn’t hurt to ask

Ha! Her sister hates me for and loves to coax her sister to talk shit about me and get her sister on her side to leave me. But here’s what her sister said:
This is alicia. Dad found Nell down and brought her in to the ER at Northside Sunday morning. She became extremely anxious, very argumentative all of a sudden to almost everyone and mean around the time she was released and found out about Carrie being terminal. Just acting trippy, not playful and warm anymore how we know her to be.
We all assumed she was depressed and bitter because of whats going on but last night they learned she was wrongfully prescribed near fatal dosages of two antidepressants by her back specialist she sees, causing manic episodes and now cardiac failure. Shes taken them routinely not knowing and I never thought to check. This team that’s working with her is skilled and compassionate enough to bring her back. Do you recall any mood swings and erratic behavior of her since she was released from the hospital this last time? We’re not concerned with about you twos business just wanna know how long this may have really b goin onMay 22, 2019 at 6:34 am #295081
“Dad found Nell down and brought her in to the ER at Northside Sunday morning”- why don’t you call Northside hospital and see if you can get information about your ex girlfriend having been admitted there on that date, Sunday?

Her friends n some fam are posting things on Facebook, I had my roommate snoop. What do I doMay 22, 2019 at 7:15 am #295093
I don’t understand your recent post. And you didn’t respond to my suggestion to you. If you would like to respond and explain what you need at this time, please do.

I’m asking what I should do about approaching things with her. Her sister wouldn’t talk to me if she didn’t have to, nor does she care for our relationship to try n be matchmaker for me and my ex. This guilt is hard rn. I didn’t want anytginh do with her and I didn’t mean it. How do I find words to tell her I didn’t mean it. I’m not trying to be snappy at you, but I’m regretfulMay 22, 2019 at 8:33 am #295127
Do you care to know how your ex girlfriend is doing, if she really is in a hospital, having just suffered a cardiac arrest?
Before attending to your guilt, before you “find words to tell her”, anything, shouldn’t you first find out if she is alive, if she is recovering from a cardiac arrest- or this was a made up story??

I do care to know! I’m going up there tonight. You may not be doing it on purpose, but after I just explained to you that 1) her sister shared this news who has NO reason to even guilt me when she hates me and 2) her own friends and family have gone to see her and have made posts on Facebook afterwards about it and you’re STILL insinuating this is a made up story. You appear to have formulated your own opinion from a cynical standpoint, despite me saying friends and family are involved at this point. And actually a person CAN develop cardiac arrest as a result of too high an antidepressant dosage, much like too much of any medication. It’s more common than not for cardiac arrest to result, and that’s according to google. So before you start interjecting your doubt into a platform for guidance to others, when you clearly did not research your argument, but instead based this partly off not being familiar with a pathology. That means you didn’t have the range to discuss it.May 22, 2019 at 10:18 am #295161
Clearly a miscommunication between the two of us. I hope you experience better communication with other members.
