She post about 45 min. ago. And now she wont respond back. It just sounds bad to me. I think she may have lost a child. I have sent three posts and nothing. You are the only one who has responded so far. Thank you for your time and effort. Thanks.

I think she is having problems dealing with her grief and may have spiraled into a depression. Been there, done that, not fun, but it is fixable.
What I would recommend is that she talk to her doc about counseling and, if she is diagnosed with clinical depression, medication.
I know a lot of people look at depression as something that is due to people not trying hard enough, but it isn't really, it's very often due to a slight imbalance in brain chemistry, and they have done studies that found clinical depression can run in families - that's where mine comes from - my mother is clinically depressed, as were 4 out of 5 great-aunts on my mother's side.
I would definitely suggest that she look into options for counseling/medication - counseling first, then meds, because if the depression is simply due to grief, the counseling will be her best option to start with.
