Our expert says:
Wow, a very complex situation. Obviously you would wan t to be gentle and tactful, but you can't feel forced to put up with embarrssing or even invonvenient behaviour on her part for fear that doing so might make her feel rejected, or attempt suicide again. Isn't it possible for whichever of you she feels most comfortable with, and you yourself, to sit down with her and, emphasizing that nobody wishes to reject her, point out that her behaviour is becoming intrusive and embarrassing, and ask for her suggestions about how to relieve this problem. She may decide that she refuses to change the way she displays her life-style, or whatever is embarrassing you, she may choose to see much less of you all, and that's OK.
