There is a woman who was assigned to me to be my prayer partner at church. We got along so well that I invited her to work with me in my house cleaning business. Even though she is my prayer partner, I have never told her about my problems with depression. I am very careful about who I talk to about that stuff. Anyway, we have been cleaning together for about three months and getting along great, when I finally decided to open up about my depression. She told me that she had almost died once due to a heart problem and I told her that I had almost died once too. I told her that I had intentionally overdosed on medication once in a suicide attempt. She seemed interested in what I had to say, but then she said, "That's something you definitely don't want to tell any future boyfriends about." And then she kind of laughed a little. This statement really bothered me. It made me feel really ashamed and I felt like I had a big secret that I should never tell anyone about, even if it might be someone who I would be in a serious dating relationship with. Basically, the statement made me feel bad, hurt my feelings. Am I overreacting to the comment? Am I reading more into it than i should? Was it insensitive for her to say that? If you were me would you feel uncomfortable. Any opinions would really be appreciated. Thanks.

I had been told just over 2 weeks ago that she had end-stage liver disease (a result of her alcoholism, but not an important fact at the moment.) I had originally been told "up to a year", but her deterioration was so rapid. Every day something else new was wrong. Every day she lost another capability. "Up to a year" became "a few months", then 2 days ago "a few months" became "a few days, maybe...
