It’s only been a week since you decided to leave us, but it’s been the longest week of my life. I am so sorry that I was angry with you most of the time for not fighting harder. I wish I could have been kinder to you, more compassionate. I miss you so much – I can’t even describe the pain. I am just so sorry.
One thought on “My youngest sister, Cathy”
Please take care, I’m so so sorry to hear this has happened to you. My brother took his life in March, days after I said some terrible things to him, I was the last person he tried to contact but unfortunately I ignored the call as I just couldn’t cope at the time. You need to remember that you are not responsible for another person’s life though and it is very tough supporting someone with depression, particularly a sibling as we revert back to how we interacted with them as kids. I know I am far more patient with friends than I was him but that’s because that’s how we always were together. Please take care and trust me that it does take time but with help of counselling I do feel I am begging to move on a little now. I’m in UK but please do get in touch if I can help in anyway x
