"godsister" in hospital... - June 30th 2009, 07:16 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

...after taking an overdose.

my mum's best friend has three daughters, and the one closest to my age has recently taken an overdose in what mum called a cry for help. i've known my godsister since i was very young, and though i've become distanced from her in recent years, i was aware that her life was in a downward spiral. boyfriends, girlfriends, bandmates, SH, she got caught up in something i couldn't get answers to. i couldn't help her.

i do know she doesn't communicate well with her mother. she doesn't tell her much, and though apparently things had been "coming out" before she took the overdose, the act was a final attempt to...break out of the spiral. i can't contact her, her mum won't allow her internet access in the hospital. i don't know if the texts i send will reach her, and she lives north to me, too far to travel, if i ever had the time.

i'm worried about her, and about her mum, and i just want to know what's happening but i'm relying on mum, who barely knows anything, or if she knows a lot, she's not telling me...

she told me not to worry, but it's hard. my godsister isn't suffering, but she's been feeling quite ill after they made her throw up the pills or whatever she took...and they won't let her go until they're sure about her emotionally. she's seeing a coucillor, i think.

i don't think it was an attempt at suicide, but it could've been...

Have a free hug.

It's gonna be okay.

Hi Rosary,

If you are looking to contact your godsister, but are not able to see her in person, then I think you should talk to her mom about being able to phone her or write to her. Just let her know that you are concerned and that you would really like her to know she has people that support her.

I think that if you explain how you are feeling, her mom would let you talk to her. It would probably do your godsister some good to know how much you care about her and how worried you are right now. Feeling so ill is really tough, and having someone her own age to talk it through with her may help more than speaking with adults.

It does sound like the hospital will make sure she is feeling okay before letting her go home, and having her talk to a counselor is a good thing. I think it's wonderful that you are so concerned, but try not to worry too much. They are going to make sure she is feeling better and that she gets the help she needs.

I think your godsister is really lucky to have you. I'm sure it would really help her to know that you want to know how she is doing and lend your support.

Take care. If you ever need to talk, please feel free to PM me any time.

Nat.

hey,

maybe have your mom call her mom and get some information. it's a good thing that your godsister is getting help for her problems. it may or may not have been a suicide attempt but she def. could have died from it, so it should be treated as such. at any rate, she's finally getting the help that she desperatly needed, which is a step towards recovery.

maybe when she is released from the hospital you could stay in closer contact with her. and tell her that you are always there if needs a shoulder to cry on and such.

good luck!


when life is in discord; praise ye the Lord

keep your faith alive.
we're not alone <3

hey it's still up to her in the end i guess. it's really great that you're so concerned about her. (: and i know that you do have the potential to become her listening ear. so be a friend, and know that you can't force her to do anything she doesn't want for herself, just listen and try not to give advice. i know how that sounds abstract but there're things that she has to iron out by herself and with her counsellor maybe.
and rmb to take care of yourself as well. worrying about your godsister can put a huge strain on your mental and physical wellbeing. and you have to be strong if you want to support her right? (:
