I feel quite overcome as I am new to this site, just to read that you all know how it feels to live with this situation for years has been very moving. My daughter has been trying to take her life for 5 years and has been in and out of hospital since she was 16.
She is currently on section 3 in a hospital in essex which over 7 months has made her worse, the ward she is on is an example of NHS in crisis
I try to enjoy my life and know this is not my fault, I feel guilty when i enjoy myself.

Went out shopping today for my daughter today, she needs new summer light clothes in a larger size due to all the side effects of drug regime.
Has anyone else ever had to go shopping like this, not especially worried about price or colour, BUT it had to be non ligature !!
Most joggers were out as they are draw string, so were most pyjamas !
I got so over whelmed with sadness in Primark.
Anyhow if you are looking too, M & S do proper sewn in elastic waists
Its the stupid stuff that gets me.

Hi Helen,

I've found you! Thank you for responding today.
I've read through the posts on here so far and feel this forum is vital for those having or had similar experiences of living with someone who has suicidal thoughts. We need to support each other. I've felt like a lone voice trying to find support for long enough.
I have experience on a personal level with my daughter and professionally as I work with young people - I would absolutely be onboard to help set up a group or take this subject matter out to all in our communities.
Best Regards to all

My 16 year old son started to self harm about 18 months ago. I tried to get some help but everyone seemed to feel that I was making too much of it and getting help that was useful seemed an impossible task. His dad hasn't really been in the picture and his older siblings have left home and I knew he was in danger. At weekend he took an overdose. I don't know how I knew but I just had a bad feeling and found him just as he was slipping into unconsciousness. Luckily prompt treatment has brought him home in one piece. So last nigh I had a chat with him. I expected he would be sorry and grateful but he just tells me he will do it again. I've been told to try and get him back to a normal routing as soon as possible but is this still true?

This is all very new and raw to me.
I'm here because I feel like I need to talk with others in the same situation.
My 16 yo son made a suicide attempt a week ago.
It came pretty much out of the blue.

How the hell are you guys dealing with this? It is so painful.
