Two months ago today I lost my dad to suicide.

by Nicole

Two months ago I lost my dad to suicide, I can't forget the late night phone call from my brother telling me the horrible news. My dad was very depressed for years in the last year especially. He also had chronic pain in his knee for years. I am still in shock and denial. I can't stop crying and have to try my hardest to put on a brave face for my three children. I never thought my dad would do this, i talked to him every other day. He was on several medications for depression and pain. I am so sick and depressed!

Nicole I am sorry for your loss of your Dad to suicide. My husband died of cancer 4 1/2 months ago and my nephew died of suicide 5yrs. ago he was 30yrs. He threw himself in front of an express train. He was on medication for depression and the side effects were suicidal feelings. He couldn't fight this. It was too much. He ended his life. He didn't want to. I guess anyone who turns to suicide is very desperate and can see no way out. It happens suddenly. It carries its own stigma and many people feel embarassed to say their loved one died to suicide. But it is a REALITY. Many people can't cope with life. I suffered depression for over 40yrs. I tried to end my life. I was fortunate to get the right counsellor and with painfull counselling I got my life back. I have been in this dark tunnell. I say to anyone who suffers grief from someone who died a sudden death to get counselling. It is a traumatic sudden death and does often need outside support. Some people are MAD WITH GRIEF, like my sister was losing her 30yr. old son. It will be a SHOCK & DISBELIEF for some time. I still can't believe my Husband Steve and nephew Peter are gone and never coming back. It is only TIME that will help us move beyond this LOSS.
