My fiance' committed suicide on mother's day- this yr i found him in our apartment - he had shot himself in the head with his duty gun- i found him too late- had stayed up my mother's that night because we had gotten into a fight. He was drinking that night- he stopped drinking heavily awhile back- i'm starting to try an "justify" why he did it- how did i plan a life with someone- and not know he was depressed or mentally ill- i tie everything together after the fact- the words he said to me- the "this is the last time you'll ever hear from me again" wasn't a break up- it was a fact- i never thought i'd be touched up this- suicide changes you forever- it's ugly, dark, and there are no answers. One day we were planning our honeymoon- the next day his funeral- so how does one move on after seeing what i walked into-? talking to him like he was alive.. i went into shock- i should have stayed there that day- he may still be alive today- had i not left- what a wonderful man. Heaven is full of angels- why is okay for another unique and awesome person to leave so many behind. where is our closure? and how does one go on with guilt of the what if's. You are forever changed.. and they are forever gone.

What a beautiful girl - Emma was a very attractive, intelligent, caring and creative 18 year old girl.Leaving her two little sisters, Sophie and Lydia, her older brother James, Nan, Gran, Uncles and Aunties and cousins. Emma sadly left us too soon, there was no time to say goodbye but she is at peace now. She left us all unexpectedly and for her own reasons of which her family are still trying to put pieces of the puzzle together. Emma died in her bedroom from a massive overdose. Emma had so much to offer in life- her best quality is that she could only see the best in people and she loved her family especially her little sisters. Now she is not suffering in agony and torment. The angels have taken you now and the demons have gone. Rest In peace my sweetheart xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My son decided to leave last year just 3 days after his 39th birthday; July 6, 2008. I don't want to feel better. I don't want to do anything. I stopped working when he left and I can't even imagine ever working again. I can't think anyway, so I wouldn't be a good employee. I just miss him soooooooo much and wish I could be with him. We were so close and talked everyday on the phone. Sometimes he would just call to tell me a joke and then tell me 'that's all I wanted to tell you'. I love him and miss him more than I could have ever imagined. I just sit around all day waiting to die and be with him. I miss my Baby.

My best friend took her own life this past weekend. My world has been shattered. I can't eat, I can't sleep, I can't stop crying. Part of me feels like it died with her. Everyone else seems to be dealing with it okay, but I feel like my life has stopped. It will never be the same. She knew me more than anyone else, and I just miss her so badly. I guess I am just looking to find out if it ever gets any easier? Are there any coping strategies that work?? I keep telling myself, "Just breathe". If I don't tell myself, I am not real sure I will remember to. Please someone help, if anyone can...I can't live like this forever

I lost my grandson this past May. He was having girlfriend problems. I can't believe he didn't call me and talk with me over this. He was only 17 and one of my best friends. My heart is so broken. I miss his sweet voice and will forever miss him. How did I miss knowing he was so brokenhearted? He was a wonderful student and had alot of plans ahead of him. Why didn't I see this???

My fiancee', Kevin-He did it in front of me and the last words he ever spoke were-I Love You-I have never forgotten that feeling of guilt that I carry every day-will I ever just stop? It has been 14 yrs and it is like it was yesterday in my heart and mind.
