My girl friend says her aunt once her out to cover a drug…

Customer Question
My girl friend says her...
My girl friend says her aunt once pimped her out to cover a drug debt yet she wants to stay with her now that she is not in good physical shape. I personally have a hard time believing that it happened because to me if it had it would seem to me she would hate her for doing such a despicable thing. Is my thinking incorrect or am i probably correct that it never happened.

Hello and thank you for using JustAnswer. I have never met nor spoken to your girlfriend, so I cannot say with 100 percent certainty that the story she told is a fabrication or the truth. If your girlfriend has no strong emotions concerning this incident, meaning no anger, anxiety, or depressive symptoms when she talks about it than there is less likely a chance that it did happen. Now if there were strong emotional signs tied to this story than even though she is going back to help her aunt than most likely the story is true. You have to understand it is possible that she has forgiven her aunt or that she is codependent in a way meaning she is rationalizing her aunt's motives during this incident to lessen the trauma in her mind...meaning that she could be in a form of denial. The best way to tell if someone is telling the truth or not would be to see if there were strong emotional ties to the story or not as that is a good indication of it being the truth or a fabrication.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
