I pray for your son, and I pray for you. What agony for you both, and for your entire family. I feel like crying. I have emotional issues, ADD, panic disorder, and PTSD. I had a serious suicide attempt two weeks ago, (I even write the "note".) When I survived, my family (all but for my mother) have treated me as if I am nothing but an embarassment. My sister incites me to get me going again. I won't let her win. I call my case manager, and she never calls me back. That's the "system." I am educated and articulate. I am grateful to be alive, and I know that there are only so many times I can attempt suicide before I will succeed. I do not want to die. I just want the pain to stop. I have come to the realization: let it go, and know that I am a valuable individual in my own right. I have no cognitive disorders, and need to use my brain and not my heart to rule my life, and, to not allow others opinions to bring me to the brink of suicide. I think, if only the system could have intervened before your son killed your cousin. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
