My younger brother committed suicide in November. I found him. He had shot himself in the head. it is still hard to believe and I sometimes wonder if it will ever sink in. I don't understand what happened. He was living and telling lies. I depended on him to take care of my parents & now he's not here. I am doing the best I can to help my parents, but it is hard to deal with. I just don't know how to accept it and go on with my life. How do you ever understand?

After suffering for several years with prescription pain pill addiction (like thousands of others) my 50 year old little brother killed himself on March 18th leaving a wife of 30 years and 3 sons, the youngest being 21.  It is such a said time for all of our family.  His family has a million questions that they will never have the answer to.  He left a note that said "I Love You" which to me covered all of us.  Unfortunately because of his drug addiction my younger sister and myself distanced ourselves from him and we haven't spoken to him since October.  His addiction was killing us and it was the only way we could protect ourselves.  He lost a great job he had after working there almost 30 years.  After that my Sis and I supported him and his family financially for a long time and couldn't do it anymore.  We both feel guilty but we couldn't save him.  It was way beyond us.  Just so sad that the "demons" wouldn't let him see the light at the end of the tunnel.   I'll miss him everyday and I loved him with all of my heart. <3

My only brother Johnny committed suicide last night by hanging himself, and my father found him and had to cut him down.   It was to late, and i miss him and i cannot stop crying and hurting..  I cant leave the house,  I am so worried about my parents..  I live in Las Vegas and my family live in England so its so hard being this far away.   I am flying home in 3 days to help.  But i just keep breaking down and how on earth do you get through this awful nightmare?

It's super hard.  My brother hung himself in May... I can't stop thinking about it.  I cannot get the picture out of my head.  I feel like people want me to just be the same person that I was before, but I'm not.  I am constantly fighting back tears and I feel fearful and fragile - which is not like me.  I want him back.... I believe in God and I know he was in pain.... but now I'm the one who is so so sad.

This is my first time visiting this site - and somehow its the only place that i feel i can speak to anyone - or hear from anyone - that maybe has some kind of an idea of how i feel. My brother committed suicide 2 months ago...and my life has changed. The colour of in the world doesnt look the same anymore - and the people around me dont understand how i feel. Its as if the world is just expecting me to get over it and be normal. But i dont think anything can be normal ever again. Its putting a lot of pressure on everyone around me - but i cant help how i feel. Its still unbelievable to me - and so tragic. i dont know

Hi Redhead,

It's so hard.  I am so sorry for your loss.  I know its hard, acceptance of this tradgedy may never come.  I have suffered from my brother doing the same thing just recently.  I will post our story for all to read tonight.  My heart is with you and your family.  This is just not fair.  Understanding this is just not possible. 

Rebecca Morales.
