Friend keeps asking my partner to buy her drugs
My friend has recently been having a rough time, she suffers from the same illness as me (BPD) and is currently in hospital after we convinced her not to kill herself with the drugs my partner had got her (we didn't know she was asking for the drugs to kill herself, she had said to us she had been struggling to sleep, it was after she left she sent a "goodbye" message). I called her persistently and told her friend that was with her that she needed help, and after some persuasion her friend phoned the crisis team who asked her to go into hospital. My friend kept in contact with my partner while she was in hospital (she doesn't contact me because I think she's pissed off that I wouldnt enable her), and today she sent a text to my partner saying she will be coming out of hospital on Tuesday and if he could buy more drugs for her cause she "needs them to sleep". I told my partner to say no, but feel it's hypocritical of me since I've used drugs myself, I really want to confront het but don't want to make her mental health worse. She has a young son (3 yo) and I think she's being deeply irresponsible to want to go back on the drugs she ended up in hospital over. Can any one give me advice on how to help her? At the moment, I just feel like never speaking to her again (but this could be my illness talking). Thanks.
