    I never talk about this before. He made his decision years ago. We found out recently about the reasons why he could not see pass that day. We were unable give him a " traditional funeral ", his death was not kind to his body.  We were unable see him and could not burried him " properly"  due to state law.   His name has " Religious Taboo" all over.  We are unable to speak about it in truth...

    41st birthday

    1
    My brother would have been 41 yesterday. He has been gone now for 5 years. I still think of him daily. The really sad part is that his son is with his mother and she will not allow me to see him. I have not seen my nephew in 5 years. My life pretty much sucks since that aweful Christmas day.

    Little brother's suicide

    3
    My 16 year old brother killed himself 3 weeks ago and I don't know how any of us are going to make it past this. It was a total shock, he wasn't bullied, he had friends, we're a very communicative family that always talks about our problems to each other.I can't understand it. He was so loved. I feel overwhelmed with sadness, anger, guilt, pain and I just don't know how to get through this. Has...

    It feels like a hole has been ripped into my being

    11 days ago my husband committed suicide. He had been battling with mental health issues and in the last year multiple triggers, including his father passing away from a heart attack, escalated his battle yo include domestic violence. After an altercation that ended up involving our three children I took the children and moved out. I needed to keep us safe while he hopefully attended to...
  • 11 years ago I lost my little brother. He was 14 about to turn 15. I was 17 and a senior in high school. The official cause of death was suicide. The family was convinced it was a homicide not investigated thouroughly and there was a lot speculation and rumours going on at the time about what may have caused it or who. Either way through out the chaos and the years afterward, I had to come to...

The feelings about everything comes and goes and some days I don't really know how to...

    Loss of Boyfriend

    My boyfriend completed the act while I was pregnant. He knew about the pregnancy, and seemed supportive, while I was emotional and scared because I was having additional health issues which could have compromised the pregnancy.We never saw this coming. He was the happiest, kindest guy, and we had just come home from a relaxing and fun vacation. I even thought he would propose soon. I am still...

    Little Brother

    3
    How does one get back to being themselves after their little brother kills himself for seemingly no reason? There were over 400 people that showed up at his funeral and no one has any idea why he did it. He came home from school, went for a run, and came home and shot himself. He had everything in the world to look forward to and instead he ended it all. I don't know what to do with myself. I was...

    My daughter

    She was, and still is, the heart of my heart. We were very, very close, none of the stuff that usually happens between Mom and kid as daughter goes into the teen years. She was a very "good" girl, no trouble ever, except for the emerging psychosis that no one recognized: no therapists, not two psychiatrists, until after her first hospitalization in 2009.It is five years now. No, it does not...

    It does get easier

    This may be somewhat of a long post, but as my first here I thought I should let everyone know my situation. My husband committed suicide on July 31 of this year. He used his hunting rifle. A few weeks before I came home, I'm a travel nurse and was gone for a while. We had drifted apart. Coming home I noticed that some things were off in our home. Towels placed in different places, vegetables in...
