Re: Living with someone who is suicidal?

Re: Living with someone who is suicidal?

Hi Wildgoose, Just to say I agree entirely with Helen. Firstly you will be in no fit state to support you daughter if you get to down and to my mind a key way to avoid that is to appreciate the better times for both you and your daughter.

Re: Living with someone who is suicidal?
