ok...so how about i found out that one of my co-workers had a "breakdown" whilst working.
 
key points:
 
~ she has been acting strange for about a year now.  when i say strange...i mean things like...
requesting stuff, getting it then re-requesting it like she never got it.  over and over again.  or making odd ball azz statements (over im) like hey tc do you wanna go feed crocodiles with me.  it will be really fun.
 
~ she has lost quite a bit of weight.  like alot.  like 2 people's worth relative to her height.
 
~ she showed up (from another state) for a legal prep meeting dishoveled, sweating profusely, shaking and unable to participate.
 
~ preperations were made so that she could go back home and was escorted (by a co-worker) to the airport.  but she had an attack (foaming, shaking, ect ect ect) at the security check.  the ambulance was called and she was admitted to a hosp.  coworkers went to hosptial as well.  she was in hospital for 2 days.
 
~ hubby was contacted and said she has been missing medical appts.  don't think he ever came to hosptial tho, granted in another state.
 
~ she was asked to take some time off.  but she dialed into a call 2 days later...acting like nothing happened...calling, emailing, and im'ing away.
 
this has really been heavy on my mind. Cry
 
has anyone ever experienced something like this?  how did you handle?

No, tell her she needs to take it easy. Maybe offer to go to those appts with her...if you are able.

Maybe she stopped taking her medication.
 
If she is acting that strange then talking to her is not going to help. She needs family intervention.

did they saw what her medical issue was?

could be a brain tumor, form of dementia or something similarly serious

they need a new doctor and completely new work up to identify what her issues are

she also needs someone to spearhead and manage her care, because it doesn't seem she is fully capable of making her own decisions

Sounds like more than a breakddown.
Is she an older woman?? Maybe she's having alzheimer's symptoms or slight dementia.

does she report to you?

I totally know how you feel, I would feel I would need to do more

it may be doing to much but you can have a candid conversation with her husband ... maybe he doesn't realize how bad it is and he's holding on to her "lucid" self

from a work pov ... a reduced schedule would be best for everyone

I've never experienced anything quite like that but I did work with a woman who had a breakdown. The worst of it wasn't at office but we saw the behavior leading to it.

at hub's old company, a staff member/man went out to his car at lunch time and shot himself in his car. His team members said they never saw it coming though.

no.  the hospital did not disclose what the issue was.  and neither did her hubby.

I would have said it's probably a breakdown if it weren't for the foaming and shaking. Sounds like there's something medically wrong with her
