Your colleague certainly has a problem. For one thing, is your colleague sharing this information with you voluntarily? There is no such thing as a "not real purge", and your colleague is clearly trying to communicate to you that she is struggling. Remember, this is not your problem to resolve. Be supportive, but the best thing you can do is encourage your colleague to seek some professional help.
