I just found this group and I'm glad I did. My younger brother Allen took his life in a terrible way 2 years ago. I'll post more about it later.. this is just a starting place for me.

I am not sure if my son commited suicide or not. I dont really think he did but i need some insight. He was 17 and doing lots of drugs. I did not realize he was doing this until it was to late. As far as I knew he was smoking weed and I was trying to get it under control. Any way he went to school and when i picked him up he was really tired and said he wanted to sleep. he did this often so I did not think any thing of it. Later i went to talk to him and he had a hard time waking up to talk to me. So I let him sleep and he never woke up. I feel sooooo guilty for not making him get up. I had a bad feeling that day that something was wrong with him but I did nothing about it. I was supposed to protect him and I feel i failed him.

On Feb 1, 2010 I had a miscarriage & on Feb 2, 2010 my fiancee took his life. I miss him so much. I don't understand why this happened, but I guess I'm not suppose to. He was the love of my life. What now?

On March 26, 2006 my life changed forever. We had went to church that morning. Came home had lunch, just the normal routine. My brother is the Pastor of the church we attend and he told me that morning that Daddy did not have his door open and he was worried about him. On the thursday before, I ask my Daddy to let me take him to the hospital. I knew something was wrong. I am a RN and I knew he was not breathing normally. My brothers and sisters were concerned about him also. He refused to go to the hospital, he kept telling me that he would be okay. When I was about to leave, he spoke my name and told me that this was probably the last time I would ever see him. He had been talking about moving and so I just told him I would see him tuesday. At 4:19 on that sunday, I got a call and was told that my Daddy had shot and killed himself. I was so distraught, I could not even get my shoes on. When we arrived at his home, there was a crowd. I think that something inside of me died that day. I have felt guilt, sadness, anger, dispair. I have watched as my children and my whole family have suffered this great loss. Some day I know it will not hurt anymore, but that will be the day that I am no longer on this earth. God has brought me along way and I know I must, must lean on him for strength.

I haven't been on this site very often, but I want to say hello and I'm sorry for your losses. When I get these emails at my private address telling me another mom or dad, sister or brother, or girlfriend or boyfriend, etc. has joined, I just cringe and cry at what is written by everyone. I lost my son, Joey, to suicide on June 20, 2008 when he was 26 years old. I know that the new members are having a very hard time with their losses. Please know that there are some wonderful people here to support you and we know exactly how you are feeling. I, myself, have joined AngelMoms2@yahoogroups.com for support and comfort. The site is for all the moms that have lost their child or children. We cry together and share our children with each other, and the support there is tremendous, as with this site. The only difference is that it is only moms on AngelMoms. The extreme pain you are feeling now (I know that it feels like your heart actually hurts) won't feel as bad as time goes on. I have to say that I still cry every day for Joey, and I don't even have to be thinking about him at that moment. Tears come more freely since I lost him. I spoke with a psychic who is a member of AngelMoms who has told me that Joey is happy and sees things very clearly now, where he couldn't on earth. He is with me always and sends me many signs. Before I spoke with her, I didn't realize they were signs. I thought I was just imagining things, but I was always hoping in my heart that it was Joey trying to reach me. Your loved ones are always with you too, they never truly leave us. It is what we HAVE to believe now, what we have to hold on to until we see them again. We care here. . .
Love to all of you,
Debbie

I was 14 and someone I knew commited suicide. It was my first experience with death, and it hit me really hard. I hardly even knew him. But it still affected me more then his best friends. I don't know why. His girlfriend of 7 seven years is now so much better, and even dating again. Why can't I get over it that fast? It's been a little more then one year. He died two days before Christmas in 2008 and I didn't find out until Dec. 26th. I miss him.

Hi Everyone,
I just thought Id comment about wall posts. It is so easy to miss these posts, and I wouldnt want anyone to feel missed, may I suggest posting in the discussion board, much easier for people to read the posts.
And Thankyou Donna !
