Re: does it ever end?

Thanks for responding, Blossom. This year I'm experiencing what prisoners with life sentences must feel when it sinks in that they will never be free again. I have to deal with my mother's suicide for the rest of my life.

does it ever end?

My mom died almost ten years ago and I still have trouble coping with her suicide. Is this normal?

This sucks

Today is my mother's birthday. She shot herself 10 years ago this August. It's still feels like a kick to my heart when I think, say, or write those awful words. How do you say "Happy Birthday" to some one who was never happy and didn't want to celebrate any more birthdays? I'm tired of making donat...

unread posts

Hi, I don't come to the forum very often any more, but I noticed today that there are many unanswered posts, some from people who are on this board for the first time grieving a recent suicide loss. Shouldn't one of the moderators respond within a short amount of time if no one else has? I can't ima...

Re: Why does it still hurt after 4 years?

Hi, Michelle - I, too, lost my mom to suicide, a little over 8 years ago. And it still hurts, not as badly as before, and not as constant, but four years is not that long in grieving a suicide. I don't think that missing your mom's funeral is the main reason why you are still upset, but it certainly...

suicide jokes and references

Hi, it's been 8 1/2 years since my mom shot herself, and every now and then one of my friends who knows how my mom died will make a suicide reference, like "the lecture was so boring I wanted to shoot my self," that kind of thing. I usually let it pass, because I know they are just using a common ex...

Eight years, still no answers

It's been 8 years since I got the surreal phone call from my sister, "Mommy shot herself, Mommy shot herself." Couldn't comprehend what the hell that meant. Still can't. I still have so many questions. I'm angrier this year than I have been for a long time. I suppose I thought by now it would be eas...

Mother's Day

Another bittersweet mother's day - I had a wonderful day with my husband and son, but always lurking in the back of my mind is that my mom is gone. Almost 8 years......

Happy Birthday, Mom

Today is my mother's birthday. She suicided over 7 years ago. It's still painful, tho not as much. I visited her grave this past weekend, she's buried in Florida and I'm in NJ, but we had a family event nearby so I went to see her. Still so surreal.

Hugs to everyone on this forum,
Lisa
