Your niece must of been very confused. She needed help, professional help,they all did.Unfortunately none of them asked for help, and without them asking there is just no way to know for sure how badly they need it. I had no clue, I spoke to my brother just days before too. I remembered his girlfriend saying my brother had cried to her a week earlier..I didnt "get" it , I didnt put 2 and 2 together. I figured they were just going thru something. I live with guilt everyday. I spoke to Steve about trivial stuff on the phone and much later he called me bck, I rolled over, looked at the time and figured if it was important he'd leave a message...I ignored what turned out to be the last call my brother would ever make to me. What gets me thru that is believing with all my heart had I known, I would of moved heaven and earth to save him. I would of done anything to keep my only brother here with me. You lost your sister, you know what I mean. Your niece lost her battle with depression,she hid her true feelings, her and my brother both. You mentioned your sisters kids....are you close to the surviving siblings? Im sure they are hurting like you are hurting. I feel for you all. Linda your niece was not in her right mind...she is not hurting anymore. I hope to god there is a better place than this.....Please be gentle with yourself and I mean that sincerely,
Im not sure why the add a friend button didnt work, but keep trying as I will and maby we can figure it out together..
How very very sad that is. I am so sorry. Your niece must of been in alot of pain for her to do this to herself and her baby. Maby she didnt know? I can tell you it will get easier, it doesnt just go away, but time does help ease the pain, and so does talking about it. So sorry you have to be here, but glad you found us. My heart goes out to you and your family.
Sorry for your losses,
