Let us assume you should have identified out and in about your pal and whats happening in her life and relationship. Glad to see you get up lastly, however I want you’d have woken up sooner and suggested your pal to not help any type of drug abuse by SSR if any. When she very properly knew about his psychological state by publicly stating that he was in despair. Should she have allowed a depressed man to eat medicine? How is that going to assist?

On one hand, she says she was coordinating with all of the medical doctors for his betterment of well being on request of SSR, and however, she was coordinating drug logistics for him. Would anybody, who claims to have liked somebody so deeply, permit the opposite individual to eat medicine claiming to know his psychological state and situation? Would you try this? I do not assume anybody would. So how can it not be seen as an act of carelessness and irresponsibility? As per her, she knowledgeable his household about his ongoing remedy however did she ever inform them about his drug consumption? I’m positive she did not as a result of perhaps she, herself, loved consuming it. And that is why I really feel it is Karma/Fate.
