Most Helpful Girl
I really doubt her breakdown is all your fault. When people have breakdowns like that, it's often because of various different reasons. Seems like she wasn't all there to begin with, what with being super paranoid/jealous and really rude to your girlfriend. I feel like anyone who overreacts like that over a breakup simply can't be too normal. Yes, breakups can suck and hurt you really badly, but not to this point. That was very unhealthy behavior, so you shouldn't feel bad. You shouldn't have stuck with her just because it would have made her happy. Sometimes you have to be a little selfish in order to move on and "evolve". Breaking up with her was probably a good mood, because if she really does have mental problems, it probably would have affected your relationship a lot more later on.
I also think that it's kind of normal of you to call your current girlfriend your best friend. She has been your best friend for a much longer time than she has been your girlfriend. It's only natural that it takes some time for you to adjust to these role changes.
Basically, don't feel bad. Your ex has obviously 0 control over her emotions, and the fact that she let herself flunk out of college just because of the breakup shows lack of character which really has nothing to do with you.
