Re: 5 Years tomorrow....

In search of peace - so very, very lovely to see your long post when I logged on. It was like seeing an old friend that I had been through the trenches with - you too Cali. I also feel sad the same support isn't here the same way as when I needed it. I honestly think the wise, compassionate voices o...

Re: Nearly 5 years ...

Nick, it's something I have admired in others- that ability to share their experience articulately, without breaking down. A family in BC who lost their son several years ago to suicide has created a mental health centre that bears his name. They are really making a difference. I am trying to make a...

Re: Nearly 5 years ...

Yes it does feel like yesterday some days. I'm in the midst of a wave again I guess. It's been a long while, and I know "this too shall pass", and still.... It catches me off guard and is painful.

Nearly 5 years ...

I work in the social services field in my community. As a community we are struggling to find away to cope with all the anxiety and depression in our young people. Many see it as an epidemic. I am at a meeting today, where I feel like it might make a difference if I tell them my sorry. Liam's story....

Re: what the ????

Thank you all for your kindness. This year was the hardest birthday since the first one without Liam. Your thoughtfulness helped to fill the void. It means the world to me.

Re: Lost my only child to suicide.

I think you are right to tell yourself that. I think its very true. I read a book shortly after my son died -"dying to be free" by Beverly Cobain- Kurt Cobains aunt. It talks a lot about what people who are feeling suicidal are experiencing. I found it really helpful and would recommend it.
