No, she's not. She's been having issues to one degree or another for a long time (she's had a pretty rough life in a lot of ways), and this isn't the first time she's had to check herself in, but she seemed like she was doing alright so I wasn't expecting it. I'm glad she's getting help, I'd be way more worried about her if she were just sitting at home wanting to kill herself, but I just wish there was some way I could magically make her better.
Thanks for the kind words, SW and TSL. This may not be the best of places for it, but I needed to vent and most/all of my close friends back home are her friends too so I don't want to be all like HAY GUISE GUESS WHO'S IN THE HOSPITAL, and I'm not really close enough with anyone here to want to talk about it in person.
I think you have the right idea not floodlighting other people at the law school with this, but maybe go talk to the class dean about it. Our class dean is really wonderful and it is his job to deal with the hard stuff. You should not have to suffer alone.
