Everybody needs somebody

Recently a young lady our son knows took an overdose. Fortunately she’s ok. When she was discharged from the hospital she agreed to come to our home for a while, she needs somebody to look after her while she continues to recover. It breaks my heart that there are so many young people with such despair, and so sure that life has nothing to offer them except pain.

When I saw this prompt for Sex Bloggers 4 Mental Health, I knew immediately how to respond.

Everybody needs somebody.

I know, I know, it’s a song right? I’m kinda singing it in my head right now, but it doesn’t make it any less true.

Everybody needs somebody.

This young lady felt so alone she wanted to end her life. She couldn’t turn to her parents. She felt she couldn’t tell her friends. Unfortunately she lives a 45 minute drive from our home and so J couldn’t just go round to her home.

Right now she is at our home and I am hoping she will stay until she feels better. I’m hoping she will let us, J, Mr H and myself, be her somebody’s.

  1. You are good people, I hope she gets the help she needs.

    1. Me too …

  2. It’s so sad that often the closest people to us are the last ones we can talk to. I’m full of admiration for what you’ve done for the young lady and I hope she finds her way out of the depths she’s go in to.

    To be down that far and find such support and kindness from an unexpected quarter maybe the spark of light she needs, I hope so.

  3. A truly kind act like that can form a lifetime bond. Years ago a good frend of mine tried to take his own life. After he got out of the hospital he stayed with me and I helped him recover and regain his self worth. He is now like a brother to me and I call him as much. When someone needs a hand, even if they dont understand what they need st the time.. it creates a bond. Keep up the good work. Your doing the right thing.

  4. Such a difficult time. Kudos for stepping up and showing real humanity! May she do well in your home! But the process of recovery is a long one.

  5. Oh well done Sweet. I did similar many years ago. A teenager from my village would not go home to her parents – long story there – and had started to sleep out. I bought her back to mine. WE ALL need help now and then. Good karma coming your way x

  6. She is holding her own for the moment ❤
