Suicide

Postby crazymonkey » Wed Oct 23, 2019 8:15 pm

My 21 year old son just took his own life two weeks ago, and I found him. I feel like I’ve been shattered into a million pieces and have so much guilt. And what if’s. And I’m mad at the mental health care system for failing him and his dad for being abusive. Anyone else experience loss of a child or loved one to suicide? I feel like I’ll never survive this.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. I think losing a child is the most devastating thing ever. I agree that there is a huge flaw in our system which doesn't address mental health. It really should be embedded in early education, especially healthy coping mechanisms.
I, myself have not lost anyone due to suicide, only natural causes, but some of my friends have gone through the process.

I just wanted to express my feelings for your loss and I pray you find the support you need.

You will survive this in time. I am so sorry to hear your tragic loss. I cannot imagine what you must be going through but like everything, this too shall pass.

I have no words of wisdom. I do, however, have a heart of a mother, and I offer my condolences first of all. I also offer my shoulder to help you carry this weight of sorrow you find yourself carrying. Huge Hugs!
