The Suicide Grief Support Forum is a public message board, an outreach project of the Parents of Suicides (POS) and Friends and Families of Suicides (FFOS) Internet Communities. The forum officially began on October 2, 2002.
Our mission is to provide information, support and comfort to anyone whose life has been touched by the suicide of another person. Connecting with others who have walked the same road can sometimes make a difference in how we survive a tragedy that may be incomprehensible.
The board is monitored by special volunteers who give freely of their time in memory of the people they lost to suicide.
We do not pretend to be professionals, and we encourage anyone whose needs are greater than can be met here to seek out professional help.
This is not a suicide or crisis hotline. Please contact a counselor, family member, friend, or emergency services if you are having suicidal thoughts.
Or in the USA, call:1-800-SUICIDE 1-800-273-TALK
For Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and People with Speech Disabilities who use a TTY, call 1-800-799-4TTY (4889)

I am very sorry for the loss of David and Tommy. Please pull up a chair with us here and come back as often as you need.
I have already learned 2 things from meeting you here -....we never stop healing....we never stop growing - thank you.
It sounds like it is so hard to be forced to live a life without divulging the story of your pain to others. 6 mths ago I would have been shocked by your story, but my understanding of mental health has come along in leaps and bounds and I am pretty well not shocked by people's stories....rather, I have eyes and ears for the person or people who live the aftermath - that means you matter very much. I hope you find some affinity with and support from the people who post here.
ps I worry a bit about memories becoming dreamy....do you think that jotting them down might jog your memory and start a flow of recall?
Such heavy burden you have to carry beginning as a small child. I can only imagine how dreamlike it is for you sometimes and how that only adds to your heartbreak.
Its is sad that you have to keep secrets to guard others. I think we all feel that at times, I'm sad that for you its a life sentence. The general public does not have the ears and eyes blossom describes. These truths don't go down well with coffee.
I am so glad you posted. This section is a little bare for many of the reasons you encounter, I'm happy you felt the safety to share. You sound so wise and I look forward to hearing more from you. Your story and journey are like gold and like blossom I gain truths and hope in them.
I am sorry for losses of your brother and dad and admire your survival. Bless them and bless you Pegasus!

Meth made his psychosis drastically worse and my guess is that he thought that devil was chasing him as a result he decided on getting himself before devil get shim (he did something like that in the past) sometimes I wonder if he would have done something to hurt me … It is not likely but you never now… See this guy, when I fell in love with him 4 years ago , was colorful , maybe a little crazy but was not insane , then we were separated for a about 2 years and meanwhile he had lost his sanity to hard drugs and stress factors .. it was so heart breaking ….
