Who’s Health Do You Put First?

Kim from Shoreline has asked for help with her boyfriend Brian who she says is still in touch with his ex. She says he is constantly getting calls, texts, chats, and Facebook messages, and even FaceTimes with her. She says she knows the girl has health issues and that’s why Brian ended it, but she’s taking advantage of him and it’s time for him to let go and move on with his life with Kim. But when Brian comes on, he says it’s not that simple. He says his ex is struggling mightily with a drug addiction and related mental health issues and is a danger to herself; he’s afraid if he doesn’t help her no one else will and she could die. Kim says she feels for the girl but thinks Brian will never be fully committed to her as long as he is still emotionally involved with the girl. And is any of this healthy for Brian?
