How do you handle shit like this?

Those who have been reading long enough may remember a couple years back the bf and I were going through a period with his nephew and some major drug issues.

This time round it's the sister. She's tried to commit suicide, twice now. We didn't even hear about the first time, this time was worse. She almost succeeded this time. She cut her wrists and took 30 antidepressants with alcohol. Planned it all out.

What the fuck is wrong with this picture? She's 18, beautiful, came in third in a beauty pageant. Smart, but dropped out of school like her brother. It's scary, it's worrying and it's very, very sad. I want to save her. I feel the need to talk sense into her, try to figure her out.

I think she's angry. I think she's angry at everyone around her wants to make them pay... it's a revenge thing isn't it? revenge or attention seeking?

It's just so upsetting.

I had a friend in college who did the exact same thing. Cut herself up then tried to OD. Hers was a cry for help. She got some help. She had to stay locked up for a couple months in a facility. She is a lot better now at 40+. She has gotten her shit together.
