I need some advice what to do here

Chat I just had with someone on AIM

She's been lying to me about a few things all along. She told me she was a 22 year old English programmer, working from home. Now I know she's an 18 year old teen, living at home. Honestly, I don't know if that changes anything except make me mistrustful about anything I do know about her. I don't know her very well anyway. Shelley is a rape survivor, and the experience destroyed her ability to speak. I'm sure that's true, because the subject of that night always haunts her, and it infiltrates every one of our conversations and moods. I always try and help her, try and brighten up her mood, make her think or laugh or whatever.

It's been over a month since she came onlne. Now, I find out she's going to end it all. She almost killed herself last year, she told me. But I don't know how true that is. Maybe this is all a cry for help. I don't know

She has a livejournal. priscilla_shel. I have her email address. What can or should I do? I haven't really been in this situation before

Edit: I've sent her an email, urging her to not do it and to seek help, and asking her to talk about her miseries and unbearable life. Maybe if this is just attention, this will be enough to open a dialogue with her.
