Hello I'm just joining your community I have autistic spectrum disorder type 1 bipolar affective disorder and anxiety problems. Life's pretty tough at present as my brother just committed suicide. It's hard to cope with feelings I know over time I will learn to live with his loss but it's hard.

    It is never easy to lose a sibling, I lost both of mine but neither of them were by suicide, I just wanted you to know you're not alone even though it may feel like it, that's how I felt when my brother and sister died 8 years apart and before both my parents, now I am alone xx hugs
