    Default present / past tenses

    The sadness of Bo's broken relationship relapsed and made her cry every time she watched the TV series about relationship.
    __________________________________________________ ________

    1. Any mistake in the above writing?

    2. Should I say : Bo is sentimental.

    3. Any phrase to express Bo's poor emotional and mental situation?

    4. Can I use present tense in the above sentence since same things are still happening and bothering Bo.

    4. I always find it difficult in putting a right tense while the situation happened in the past but it's still happening in present.

    Every time she watched a TV show about relationships, she was reminded of her own failed relationships and it would make her cry.
