This is a sad one... :-(
Half-sister-in-law has been experiencing a long stint of unemployment and has reached the point of 3-day pay rent or quit. She's been trying to sell her possessions, including very expensive rings, couches, and a new washer and dryer set. She has also been begging for help finding employment, even offering to work a week for free to be given a chance (she works in marketing). Unfortunately, and familiar to this forum, she mixes her pleas for help with money with pictures of her at the aquarium, at nice restaurants, having drinks with friends, and so on.
A few hours ago, she posted suicidal thoughts on Facebook and then vanished from everyone's radar. Something like 8 hours later, after hours of people (including a sheriff) driving and calling to find her, they've finally found her back at home. I'm not sure what's happening with her now, but I hope she'll be under surveillance tonight.
It's so difficult to watch her experiencing such hardship, especially since some of it is self-imposed, and even more difficult now that her suicidal thoughts are public.
