Hi, just sitting here and wanted to ask the question - of mothers (but really anyone who is a parent) - My five year old's dad committed suicide when she was three, I took her to the funeral (I seriously doubt she had ANY idea what it was, also there was not a viewing), anyways, now she is asking me "death" questions - "When are we gonna die?, What is dying? When does her dad come back from dead?" also, once, the question I dread, "What happened to make my dad dead?". I guess I am fishing for suggestions, I have TOTALLY avoided any of this and changed the subject. It is getting harder to get around and I think she is getting wise to me changing the topic - Also, her grandma, his mom, condiders his death a accident, since it was maybe drug induced (while he was high), anyway, that matters because I do not want to tell my daughter something that she may repeat to her grandma and get accosted for the "wrong" informaion. So, what to tell her, suicide or "accident"? And what can she even carry in her little mind? - Help please

She is in excellent shape, really exercises a lot, and eats well... not at all overweight. Anyone else have any issues with this? I did find that it can go with PKD. She was reading that there are...
