I wondered that. Assumed she must be away on holiday.

JakB Wed 17-Aug-05 10:21:24

Hiya! I'm here. Sorry, I have been lurking but not posting. Just as things started to get better, had some awful news about my brother. He has died of a heroin overdose. So, so sad.
Anyway, I'm back. Holiday? What a JOKE. I wish!

Oh no. Oh love. How absolutely horrible.

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. .

I'm so sorry to hear about your brother. .

I know. It truly is and has a place on this part of Mumsnet as my brother had ADHD and I feel really guilty that I didn't help him get help for this. He said that heroin made him feel 'normal'. It's just so hard because he lives in Australia. My Dad (who I had a massive row with last year and hadn't spoken to since... families...) is in pieces.

Please, please don't feel guilty. There are things which, sadly, we cannot solve for other people. Your life, for years now, has been utterly packed. You can't take on guilt for everything.

How awful. I am sorry. Motherinferior is right btw.

I am really sorry. That's terrible news.

JakB Wed 17-Aug-05 11:37:41

Thanks everybody. You are right, Motherinferior, but I will always think I could have done something.

Oh Jak, I'm so sorry. I put my foot in it there didn't I? What terrible news about your brother. Please look after yourself and DO NOT feel guilty about anything. I'll be thinking of you.
