ChocolateLime:  He is a manipulator. No no one is responsible for anyone else’s behavior.

He may very well need medical or psychological help. If she really is concerned that he is a danger to himself or others, she should call the police. He will be taken in for a psychiatric assessment.

Um, is he still driving? If so I would call the Police, you can’t have someone crazily driving around just because they are having a “mental breakdown”, what if they hit someone? Oh…right…he already did! What if he actually kills someone by running them over? Or by causing a collision?

Do they live together? I would tell ther to get all her things and move out immediately! If he can run his mother over and not feel bad about it or take responsibility- then he doesn’t care who he hurts and your friend might be next! She needs to get out of there and never look back!

ChocolateLime:  She needs to get him help. Call a hospital, call a psychiatrist, therapist, or even the police and she needs to tell them she is concerned he will harm himself. I’m surprised this wasn’t already done when he HIT HIS MOTHER WITH A CAR!!! 

julies1949:  Calling him a manipulator with as little information as has been posted is beyond ridiculous. Sometimes people have genuine issues and need legitimate help.

Yeah danger to others. 5150. Sounds legit. He needs help. call ambulance or police for ‘welfare check’.

whitums:  Anyone who blames someone else for their actions is manipulating. They may very well need acute psychiatric help, but they are still manipulating. I told her if her friend has concerns that he is of danger to himself or others, to call the police.

julies1949:  There is a difference between someone who attempts to control another person and someone who wrongfully places blame to shield themselves from their own guilt. How do you know which one this random internet stranger who made one comment is? You don’t.

ChocolateLime:  Thats too bad ;-( im sorry for your friend. If he is still breaking up with her after a whole 12 years, she really needs to move on. its obvious hes unhappy in his relationship and thats prob why he hasnt commited. its unfortunate that he lost his friends ;-( but i dont know how much it really has to do with him breaking up with her and then running his mom over. if thats how he handles grief then…. whoa. ive lost a lot of friends over the past years and never have i ever taken it out on someone i love. i think if she stays with him that she will continue to get hurt, and eventually he will break up with her for good, unless she does it.

ChocolateLime:  it just seems so odd that after 12 years (even as high school sweethearts) that hes still trying to break up and then get back together. and break up then get back together. that seems like a big red flag to me as not being that committed. i hope everything works out for them though.
