My cousin attempted suicide yesterday. She's 21 and lives in Canada. I live in California. This is her second attempt in a year. I wish I could be there for her. Part of me wants to fly her down here to live with me. She won't see a therapist. She self-medicates with alcohol/drugs rather than get professional help. Her brother committed suicide three years ago and the trauma is still there with her even though she's a spirited young woman who is resilient. But she gets tired of putting up a front. I'm upset. I've been struggling with my own challenges and keep choosing life. She's in the hospital and is stable, however, she might have liver damage. I want to comfort her mother who has bravely faced the trauma of her son choosing death over life. I don't know what to say or what I can do to console her and her daughter. Thank you so much...this forum has helped keep me alive.
