Re: Hello from a New Member

I am actually trying to help them deal with their feelings. They didn't know how to deal with my girlfriend when she was growing up. They thought she was a problem child and dealt with her accordingly. I know they made great strides the last two years or so. I just feel horrible for them, because th...

Re: Kevin Breel TED Talk: The answer to the question "WHY?"

I wish I had seen this before. My girlfriend would have loved it. And for me, it made me realize that all the talks we had about her depression were valuable and right on. She educated me right in the beginning about how she didn't want to be treated, and I'm proud to say that for the most part, I "...

The Velveteen Rabbit

My girlfriend loved "The Velveteen Rabbit". I bought her a nice hardcover edition for her birthday, and I noticed she hardly ever read it. When I asked why, she said in a kind of embarrassed voice, "I like to have it read to me." I told her I wish she would have told me sooner! I think reading to so...

Re: Their Stuff

Surprised, It has only been 22 days since my girlfriend took her own life. We shared an apartment. I took sick days for the rest of the week and I was in there the very next day organizing and going through her things. I'm glad I did it that way, too, because I felt this instinctive push to keep bus...

Re: Hello from a New Member

Thank you, Briansfolks. It is interesting that you say that, because my girlfriend had a very bad fight with her parents on the day she died, and horrible things were said on both sides (from what I've been told). I, too, am thankful that the last in-person interactions I had with her were quite nor...

Hello from a New Member

Hello, everyone, my name is John. I lost my girlfriend 22 days ago. She had been very up front with me right from the beginning about her depression and had tried to take her own life several times before I met her. It's one of the things I respected about her. She had been hospitalized several time...
