Re: Need to know

I'm so sorry you lost your son to suicide. It doesn't make sense that people would be so insensitive so early on, but I've read it here before. Can you find an SOS group in your area, or a therapist you might be able to talk to? The early days are so hard, it's good if you can find some support... I...
