    I have run a blanket ministry for the homeless for the last three years and have run into this, bipolar and cutting. I find the best thing we (non-professionals) can do and is so appreciative from them is to just be a friend, a non-judgmental friend and to be a good listener. So many do not take the time to really listen. Also, and So important, if they are willing, to tell them about One who bore scars for us, understands what they are going through, and is a healer of wounds, emotional and physical. They need the touch of a Savior and love from us.

    I feel the same…helpless really. The best you can do is be supportive like you are:)

    Taylor, watching a loved one suffer from mental illness is so hard. Being there to listen can do so much for them. But the best thing you can do, is pray! So you are a good friend! I will pray for also.

      Thank you Erin, She knows I’m always ready to listen and I know she’ll talk when she’s ready. So I’m in pray and wait mode which is cool too.

    I hope prayers will take away all of her hurt, sadness, and frustration away. She’s so lucky to have you as a friend. 🙂

    Prayer is the most precious gift we could ever give.

    I hate for people to say, “I know how you feel,”but I’ve experienced that heartache. I still don’t know what to do, but I do know He will hold you and hear you and you’ll do what you need to do. Our situation lasted for many years and we have found a peace in a very unexpected way.

      I’m so happy you’ve found peace. I know He hears me. That’s what makes it bearable.
