the guilt is difficult.

I was awake all night.


My sister was stigmatised because she is my relative.

She became suicidal.

I asked the adults around us for help, but no-one would intervene.


Even when my sister threatened to kill herself, we were left to deal with the problem alone.


I realise now that no-one was going to help us in any way.

They did not believe the bullying was real.

I was told I was imagining the whole thing.


I believe that I came very close to losing her, and would blame myself for ever if she was dead.

How would I live without my sister, knowing that she had been bullied to death?


How could anyone treat my sister like this?

She had done nothing wrong.  Her only crime was to have a relative with mental illness.
