Child of a parent suicide.

Hi All,

Are there any members that have had a parent commit suicide?

What were/are the efects, what age were you, what were there reasons.

Anyone who has been there and turn back?

Any help will do.

Loves and hugs

Re: Feeling powerless

Hi Mel, My advice would be to make sure you and the children are well, physically and emotionally, no if's or but's this has to be your primary concern.

Re: How can I he,p my son

Hi luckybird, Just hold your son! Say nothing, cry with him if you need to but hold him. Get his wife to do the same. I have been where your son is most of my life and changes are only just starting to happen after a spectacular split with my second wife. The split resulted in me being placed in hos...

Re: Suspected NPD and emotional blackmail

Hi Honeybee, My whole life I have suffered with mental health issues and I have seen how they affect others at times. I don't mean them too. If your niece does have NPD she may not know how or why she is behaving the way she does, not much comfort but a little understanding (I hope). I have had 3 ma...

Re: Hello...I'm trying to find ways to stay alive. :-)

I said years ago to a psychiatrist that I think I have an addiction to thinking negatively. I don't think I could have put it any better. My attempts to think positive, be grateful etc are the equivalent of trying to hold the ocean back. Hey Stu, I am glad to have met you here. I feel your pain and...

Re: Looking for a little advice

There were myself and 2 other single girls out trying to meet some guys in real life (as we have all become a bit disillusioned with online dating) and whilst the two other girls took to this like a duck to water I really struggled. My friend mentioned that I wasn't coming across like I wanted to c...
