DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER losing my partner, sister and mother to cancer this year, I no longer see the point of going on.
I just want to join them in heaven, or wherever they are.
I’m only 45 and feel my life is behind me and I will never have loving relationships again.
I’m ashamed to say I have attempted to take my life.
Sometimes I wish I would get cancer or another terminal illness too.
Just existing feels like a punishment, and nobody would care if I wasn’t here.
Every day the realisation they have gone hits me again, just like the first time.
I can’t stop crying, can’t eat and barely sleep. Please help me. It’s all too much to bear.
