Suicide

Suicide....Hard Knowing Thay did it By Their Choice 2 Replies

Suicide is not a choice!  It is a desperate last option of someone who feels they can’t take any more pain.  I lost my best friend of 20+ years to suicide in 1989, I know the pain and it is hard to…Continue

t is so difficult to find the "right" words. I want to comfort you but don't know what words might be comforting. The one thing I want to do is to send a (((((HUG))))) the second thing I have learned is to talk to someone that cares. Don't bottle it all up and just suffer.

Talking can be a helpful release. Following the death of all ten of his children, as well as some other personal tragedies, the ancient patriarch Job said: “My soul certainly feels a loathing toward my life. I will give vent to [Hebrew, “loose”] my concern about myself. I will speak in the bitterness of my soul!” (Job 1:2, 18, 19; 10:1) Job could no longer restrain his concern. He needed to let it loose; he had to “speak.” Similarly, the English dramatist Shakespeare wrote in Macbeth: “Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak whispers the o’er-fraught heart and bids it break.”

I will listen anytime you need me to...

Jarod will be gone 4 years on the 20th of this month and it feels like yesterday. Knowing, he choose to take his life makes my healing harder. At least for me. Anyone feel this way?

I found my bc who I shared a 16 month daughter with. He killed himself with .45 handgun in the chest. I loved him very much and finding this body was the worst day I ever had.

I lost my friend on the 23rd of august 2012. It was completely unexpected, he showed no signs of any depression or mental health issues. He was 26 years old and was a happy go lucky type of guy. It was a shock to hear what he had done and I'm still trying to get past the thought that he thought he couldn't turn to anyone. I feel guilty and angry because I couldn't do anything and that he felt that this was his only way out. I just can't seem to think about him and not cry :(

I lost my brother sep 23rd of 2012 to suicide
18 year's old.... I'm disconnected from everything :-(

I lost my 33 year olod son on Sept 25th of this year. He killed himself

after his marriage fell apart. He had bipolar disorder which was poorly managed, he overdosed on antifreeze and his medications.  How does one ever recover from the loss of a loved on by the use of such horrible means? I cry every day.
