Suicide

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
My little sister tried to kill herself a couple of days ago . Im really pised off about it but im also very sad , i could have lost her and i love her so much i don't know what i would do. Her ex was spreading all these rumors about her in school and she got into a big fight with all her friends , so she decided to swallow two bottles of aspirin to make it all go away, she is only fifteen and this is not the first time her friends have rejected her but they always work it out in the end.

I saw her today for the first time since she left for the hospital , (i've been sick so they wouldn't let me see her sooner) she's almost completly recovered physicaly and she acts as if its not a big deal , i mean she could have died or her liver could have gotten fucked up so she'd be sick the rest of her life , she just doesn't get it! I asked her why, she said she was a weak person and she didn't care about her life , i told her that if she doesn't care about herself then she at least care about her family , about how we would feel and she said that we were the reason she told my father what she'd done before it was to late.

This is to much for me I feel so alone in this , my whole family is fighting about it , half of them are really mad and think she did this for attention and the other half think that she is this fragile little bird that needs to be locked up and taken care of until she is "normal" again . This is so fustrating , if anyone has some advice or a comment or has been through a similar experience or anything i would appreciate hearing from u cause i really don't know what to do.

    What your sister needs is a bit of love and support and be safe in the knowledge that if she ever feels the need to take her own life that she has someone to talk to first (you).

    From your post I can tell that the 2 of you are close. She needs support from you and your parents. Yelling at her and saying she's just after the attention is not the right way to go about it!

    Your family needs to rememder the reason why she took the pills cause if your sister feels like she doesn't have the support she needs the next time this happens (IF) then she might not tell anyone.

    Do you have yahoo?

    I have to agree, ur sister needs love and support and possibly some councelling. someone to talk to who is not involved in the situation, who is not going to judge her thinking that she is a "fragile little bird" or just doing it for attention.
    Talk it thru wiv her, see if u think it wud b beneficial for her 2 c a councellor. If something has affected her so bad that she wants to kil herself, then it probably would b benefical.
    Above all, b there 4 her. If no-one else in ur family ccan,then its up to u, but u mite wanna try talkin to them.

    Hope it works out

    It must be really hard for u seeing your sister doing that to herself. I can imagine wat with everything that has happened u must be feeling really alone and like u have nobody. The problem with depression and other illnesses is that they effect not only the person suffering from them, but everyone who cares and is aropund them.
    My dad spent my whole childhood and early teens telling me everything I did was for attention and nothing had ever happened to me, I just wanted everyone to give me attention. It was the worse thing anyone copuld have said to me when I was so low. Now he realises the whole story and everything else that went on, he knows it wernt just a case of wanting attention!! As a result he feels terrible for saying those things, but I totally understand why he did. He just didnt understand why I was the way I was, and its easier to deal with if u just blame it on attention seeking.
    Sorry Im goin on, but I just wanted to say that your sister obviously has a lot of issues that need dealing with. If u can get your familly to see this too then maybe u could get her some help, coz it sounds like she needs some. In the mean time, just b there for her and let her no u care, and dont be angry at her (I no thats hard) because itll only make the whole thing worse, and she dont deserve it when she is so low already.
    Please keep us informed, and I hope that things work out for u and her...and your familly infact <IMG alt="image" alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
