This wonderful girl I've been talking to for months through a website. I've spent hours on the phone with her and she's really been through alot. She has PSTD and I've been doing a lot of research on it and reading some of the stories here to try to understand the nature of the beast. Last 2 weeks she has completely shut herself off.. getting involved with.. substances and refuses to talk to me on the phone like we used to. She sleeps maybe 2 hours a night and wakes up from nightmares and I've showed her these forums in hopes she'd register and find something she could use to a healthier sleep schedule. I really don't understand why she is on this self destructive path and has shut me out when she knows I am the one person trying to help her. She's knows this but suffers from major trust issues due to lot of abuse she has faced in the past. I am beyond tired of this communication blackout and need some good advice.
