I’m finding it really hard now as my sister is saying she doesn’t want to support me with my mental health issues but she’s said she is a supportive friend.
She said two of her friends have been suicidal but now they are fine and only have a bad day occasionally. I think it’s unfair she’s comparing me to them because everyone is different and I have bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder so I’m always going to have problems with my health even though DBT therapy is really helping me overcome my overdose problem and I haven’t overdosed since February!
Also, I see problems in her unwillingness to discuss mental health as it’s really important to discuss mental health particularly when people get suicidal as you never know who someone will ten to or who someone has to turn to at that moment.
For example, if I were suicidal and in my family Home and only my sister were around I would have to turn to her.
A lot of people die because they don’t talk to people about suicidal thoughts as it is; we really need to be more open about mental health.
