Late last night I got a call from my mom telling me that my little 16 yr old baby sister attempted suicide and is in the ICU! :( why? nothing of this magnitude has ever happened in my family...shes getting better but it was a close call she apparently took a whole bottle of aspirin & sleeping pills. THANK GOD my mom is an ER nurse and was the one that found her nearly 4 hours after she had taken pills. I cant even believe my sister would do this, shes so young and beautiful and smart :( i havent stopped stressing about this. what do i do now. i wanted to go to the hospital to see her but shes so embarrassed she doesn't want anyone there except my mom... who has been through this and how do u deal with it!



heres a picture taken of her a few months ago when she was sent to Washington DC from her school for being an honor student and was seleted by her teachers-

That's too bad that she felt she had no other options. She's a beautiful girl. I don't think anyone can understand why someone would attempt suicide unless they've been down that road themselves. I know I can't.

manaic depression. depression that seems to come from nowhere, the person either lives above average life or normal life, and still is depressed. normal life issues are maginafied beyond what they would be otherwise. (example a very difficult break-up, trouble in school, basic life things that cause stress.)
thats what it sounds like. there is also the possiblity something is going on that people are not aware of. such as drug use, getting picked on, and abuse, or sexaul aassult that they either can't or unwilling to face head on causing post traumtic personality disorder. causeing them to bottle up, lie, and inwardly destroy they self.
in any case i hope that she recieves support, and help. depression is rough, and if you have never battled it, it's easy to unestimate how seriuos it rally is.
i pray for her, and hope things improve, and she can overcome this.

I tried to kill myself when I was younger because of horrible things that had happened in my life. I used to hold everything inside and one day death seemed like a solution. Thank goodness my parents found me! Otherwise I wouldn't be here. It took me a really long time to love my life and accept the unfortunate events that have happened. Now all of the hardships have made me a stronger person and have shaped me as an individual.



My family tried so hard for the longest time after my suicide attempt to help "make" me happy. It was a journey I had to go through myself and when I was ready. When I wanted to talk to family or friends about it I did. Just be there for her if she wants to talk! All she needs is support.



ETA: No one knew about my depression either. My mom said it came out of no where. I used to fake a smile and everyone thought I was happy when in reality I felt like I was dying on the inside.
