My heart hurts to an extent that physically tears at me, I feel like my heart could fail at any moment, it may seem dramatic but it’s how I feel. I don’t know what to do. Help. – Posted on the National Runaway Safeline’s (NRS) Forum, November 27, 2017

My boyfriend is about to attend a drug rehab center…I feel so alone and so heartbroken. I don’t know how to cope with this at all. He just got out of a mental hospital, and now he’s going to go to rehab for a minimum of a month and a maximum of 6 months. I am so angry with him because I feel left in the wind like I’m worthless and easy to leave behind, but at the same time I know he’s just trying to make things better for him and for us. We have been through so much together, my family hates him, but I just want him to get better. My heart hurts to an extent that physically tears at me, I feel like my heart could fail at any moment, it may seem dramatic but it’s how I feel. I don’t know what to do.  Help. – Posted on NRS’ Forum, November 27, 2017
