My brother Doug.
PLEASE don't take the suicide route. PLEASE do not ever give up on yourself.
I had a son who committed suicide. Why? What was there that there was no hope left with?
What was there that he and I couldn't talk and help each other with?
I carry a huge burden of guilt in him taking his life. I was far from the perfect dad for him. Obviously he had lost all confidence and hope in me.
But, my brother, Doug, I too thought about it. I too lost all hope in myself.
Sorry for your problems in getting help from the very institutions that caused it.
I can only offer you Compassion, Understanding & Love. My HOPE that somehow you will have the strength to SURVIVE.
Heal well, my brother, Doug, heal well.
