I miss my baby sister. She took her own life 11/28/17. She was 29 years old. She has a little boy. He was the light of her life. She had everything going for her. She just bought a house, getting married in spring, a raise from her work, everything seemed great. She started to drink a lot. Even put herself on anxiety medications. Why? I cannot grasp this. Why didn’t she call Me? I’m so brokenhearted… She had me and my two other sisters and our mom for support. Why????

I’m so very sorry this happened! That must seem so confusing – on the outside she had everything going for her, but something different was going on internally. I lost my son and have found that it’s really helpful to keep talking about it – there’s a lot of good counselors trained in grief and loss, or maybe you are able to talk to your family. Hold onto each other – your loss is very recent and you will be feeling so many things. Hang in there.
So sorry for your loss. My sister took her life two years ago. She was 50. I’ll never forget that phone call from my mother.
You can’t beat yourself up. Draw close to those you love, and take it one day at a time. Your family needs you more than ever before.
I’m so sorry for your loss. My brother took his life on 11/27/17 and it hurts so much as well. The pain is unbearable. Especially for my mom and nephew he left behind. If only they knew how much we love and need them.
My brother killed him self in 2014. He was 20. Had a girlfriend and she was pregnant. He had a successful job. Growing up with him. He was the most perfect person I ever met. He spent so much time with me and he never was the “bad rebellious teenager” or so I thought. He moved out and a year later. He called me June 30th and wished me a late happy birthday. The next day my parents sat me down, and I’ll never be the same again. I’m older now and my greatest regret is that I didn’t see it. I should’ve seen it. I know there’s nothing I could’ve done but, he was my brother, my bestfriend, and the sole person who I looked up to. Then he is just gone.
Your last few sentences… my exact thoughts. Why didn’t I see it coming?? How could I have missed it?
