Have You Considered Suicide?
People rarely talk about this.
After each death ~ my 18-month-old daughter Erin's in 1990, my wife Trici's in 1999, and my 13-year-old son Rory's in 2005 ~ there were periods of time when the pain I was feeling was so deep and intense, seemed so insurmountable, and my future looked so hopeless that I contemplated suicide.
As I look back, I have learned that THIS IS NORMAL AND COMMON.
I held on, and each time decided that suicide was not the answer for me.
In time and with much healing work ~ life returned. And it can for you, too. This I know for sure.
If you are feeling suicidal, "Hold on. Hold on. Hold on."
Reach out to one other person and let them know what you are thinking and feeling.
