    Hello everyone.
    I'm very new to this but i hope it might work. On the 13th of January '09, my 17 year old sister attempted suicide. She took a massive overdose on painkillers and prescribed antidepressants but thankfully she is still alive..... .
    She was in a coma for the first 3 weeks after the accident and is out of it now, but still not concious. She may have suffered brain damage but nobody really knows what happened.
    In a way i feel it would have been much easier if she had died and i really hate myself for that but i cant help it.
    Please i know im not the only one and if someone could help me i would be so grateful ... .

    Hi Louise

    I'm so sorry for what you and your family are going through. It must be really hard having lots of unanswered questions - I can not even imagine the emotions that you are currently going through - it must be really tough.

    If you ever want to talk things through or just have a friendly chat then feel free to contact me :arms:

    :welcome: to the forum Louise. I was saddened to read about your sister. I hope she recovers fully and can receive the help she needs to bring hope back into her life. I don't know that we can give you the answers you are searching for, but maybe you will be able to gain a small bit of understanding and support for you along with it. :hug:
