I write this with a very heavy heart and am at my wits end.
My GD was sexually abused at age 11 and only now 3 years later has the louse who did this to her been found guilty and sentenced to a miserable 6 year sentence.
She has not coped very well over the past three years but with counselling and lots of love has seemed to cope better this past 6 months. We thought the fact that he has been put away would help her to get some sort of closure, but it has actually made it worse.
A couple of years ago she had thoughts of us all being 'better off without her' which seemed to pass but these suicidal thoughts have now resurfaced with a vengeance and she is now in hospital in psychiatric care.
My heart is breaking but I don't know how to help her. It's doubly difficult as they live abroad.
What can I do. Has anyone else experienced anything similar?
