Thank you Heather. I thnk it does help when I know there are other people who are dealing with the same situation. I think It would have been easier if she had died from some desease or something. It's just the suicide that hurts so much. It was weeks before I could even say "she took her own life". I still can't relate the word suicide to her death. The police chief that investitgated it was so cruel. He said "your daughter killed herself, deal with it". Some of her best friends and myself and my other dauther, and even my husband who is a retired police officer, feel she may not hve done this alone. And that is the answer I got frm the local police department.
I lost my husband 9 months ago today, it also happened to be our wedding day. I have been to 2 psychiatric hospitals, counselors, therapists, psychiatrists and the pain is still there. There are 5 stages to grief:
I can not get past the anger part. It is very hard for me to be angry at him. Everyone says I should be, but I loved him so much, it is like he took my heart with him. I will be thinking of you. Hope this helps a little bit...
I am so sorry heather my son was killed on novmer 19th and my youngest daughter is taking it so hard. Talk to your friends let them help don't try to be strong for your parents they can take it we want to help our daughter so much but she claims up on us when we try to talk to her, the whole family is grieving and right now you all need to grab on to each other for comfort any way you can
