With respect, if your sister also struggles with mental health issues, her scale of what is normal and not normal isn't going to be super accurate either. If it's abnormal for you or upsetting to you, it's worth reaching out to someone for support, or for support to be put in place. Part of your CPN's job is arranging support for you while he is gone if need be.



You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

If you are distressed then you deserve help, no matter how 'normal' or 'abnormal' your sister thinks your feelings are. It would be worth discussing things with your CPN I think since he knows more about your MH etc than your sister probably.

Turns out I didn't have an appointment with my CPN today. But he did call me. I didn't tell him anything, he didn't ask how I was (at least, only in that greeting kind of way).

Please do call if you think he can offer you some support. Even just to see what to do if you need someone while he is off.

With the greatest respect to your sister, perhaps she has had suicidal thoughts so often it is normal in her mind. Or because of the way she is currently feeling, it may appear normal. That doesn’t mean it is. I strongly believe everybody experiences a thought that could be considered ‘suicidal’ during their lives. The difference is when it becomes distressing, more than a fleeting thought etc. Regardless of the nature of yours, you sound stressed out by it and for that reason, if nothing else, I think it would be worth speaking to CPN tomorrow

I feel...... sad. My sister has taken an overdose. Mum has taken her to hospital. I gave her a hug before they left. I've googled the med she used and it can be fatal.

I'm so sorry to hear this. You must be worried. Are you keeping yourself safe? Sending thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

She's still waiting to be triaged so maybe that means it's not too dangerous?

I am Ok, I don't feel like hurting myself.

So sorry to hear that, you must be devastated, however, it's such a positive thing you don't want to hurt yourself.

Is there any self care you can do at the moment?

I'm glad your sister is getting taken care of, and that you are taking care of yourself as well. I hope she ends up physically all right.

Take it easy if you need to, and talk through your stress with someone if it's getting to you.
