She has confided a great deal in me in a short period of time, which I have let her know I appreciate. But one line of her candor was something I was not prepared to hear and did not want to hear: how she plans to end her life when she hits rock bottom, which she implies will be due to financial reasons. She seems to want to reassure me that this will not be “tomorrow” but “in 20 years” (when she will still be a relatively young woman). She even has a plan for how she will commit suicide, referencing the movie “Thelma and Louise,” which ends with a car being driven into the Grand Canyon.
