    Hi ngeangelrei :wave:

    Firstly welcome to TheSite Boards :)

    Sounds like your girlfriend is going through a difficult time and it must be tough for you feeling helpless. It sounds like you really care for her and want to help. Sometimes all you can do is just keep reassuring her that you are there for her, even if she doesn't want to talk hugs can be very comforting. Is she receiving any support from her GP, if not you could encourage her to do so and offer to go with her for support?

    Please don't beat yourself up, you have done nothing wrong- its likely her words were influenced by how she is feeling, and not a true reflection of her love to you. Perhaps she feels guilty and doesn't want to drag you down with her - maybe that's why she said she doesn't want you to wait.
