Today, I got a call from the ICU. Apparently, my boyfriend has been there for 3 days and I'm the only person who didn't know. Even my parents have been to see him. FML
quietecho95 tells us more :
This is the OP. Actually I had a baby a few months ago with him. We don't live together and it's common for him to disappear for days at a time. He's okay. It was actually a suicide attempt and he's in a clinic now. We were texting but he didn't tell me because he didn't want me to freak out because this makes 6 attempts in a year. My parents didn't tell me because they were leaving town and knew there was no way I could take my infant into ICU.

If you go to the ER for something and don't want to freak someone out, that's cool, but if you're in the ICU, it's significant enough your significant other needs to know.

38, actually it is pretty odd. I had an ex who wasn't big on talking on the phone or texting, and there were often times where I'd see him only once a week. Even with all of that, we sent each other "good night, hope you had a good day! I'm here if you need to talk." texts on a daily basis. I've never met a couple who think it's totally normal to have absolutely no contact at all for days in a row if it wasn't previously discussed.

38, it's not just that they haven't seen each other for 3 days, they've had absolutely no contact. No phone calls, no texts good night or "how was your day." Nothing. That is definitely weird in my opinion. I get that you don't have to see each other every day, but you think there would be some sort of communication.

unless you yourself are in fact crazy. Considering this is suicide attempt 6 of this year we know it's been a relatively crazy year for these three.

#7, that's what i want to know! Also, wouldn't it be strange to not talk to your significant other for three whole days? I'd be concerned at that point!
