To cut a long story shore, I have a friend of a friend, let’s call her Lexi, who is in some very deep trouble and in desperate need of help. She was raped some months ago and it has fucked with her mind. She has had self-destructive tendencies her whole life, as well as severe anxiety and major depression, and has always sought out help and support before, but this time is different. She is withdrawn and going down a very dark path.
Lexi has had problems with addiction before, and recovered, but being sexually assaulted prompted her back into using. She’s also hanging out with the worst lowlifes you can imagine. And now, as if it wasn’t bad enough, she was diagnosed with myelodysplastic syndrome (i.e. pre-acute myeloid leukaemia) just a few weeks ago. She is taking her anticancer medication and only using pot (for fear that her anticancer medication will interact), at least for now, but she’s still self-destructing by having sex with sketchy strangers and burning through all of her money at lightning speed.
Right now, she’s refusing to get help. So, what we’re looking at is a working to push her towards admitting she has a problem and going to a psychiatrist. I’m going to try several workings under different occult systems, but many of you are more experienced than I am, obviously. Would any of you be willing to help get Lexi to seek treatment or otherwise get better?
