A dilemma

I have mentioned before, a young friend of mine whom I have been helping, to come to terms with her problems.
Things are now spiralling out of control so much that she is in danger of going into a world of complete fantasy. She is refusing any help or advice and is fast becoming a semi-recluse and avoiding anyone or everyone who wishes to help her.
After some deep deliberation, very reluctantly, I have recommended that she should be given professional care for her own protection. This may mean a temporary incarceration
It has not been an easy decision, as hitherto, I have always tried to prevent this from happening.
However, I see no other course left open; I sincerely hope I am doing the right thing because, quite frankly, I’ve had enough!
