Hey everyone, I'm new to this so please be patient...
My sister is an alcoholic, and suffers depression really bad. It's the day after Xmas and yesterday (Xmas Day) she told me and my other sister that she wanted to kill herself. She told me this a couple of days ago as well.
This has come about because of a recent break up. The thing is she has only been seeing this guy for a few months.
She has suffered from depression for many years now, and has been to various doctors and been on various meds. Nothing seems to work for her.
But we thought she was getting better...she stopped drinking, she did an online beauty course, which she passed, and she lost weight... but now she seems to have gone back to square one.
I have also been a drug addict for half my life, but have been clean now for over 2 years so I sort of know where she is coming from, and have been trying to give her some advice without sounding like a hypocrite.
The thing is me and my sister are a bit stuck, so if anyone out there has any advice or direction...please lay it on me.
Thanx for reading xx
