My son died by suicide on May 6, 2017. I have searched and searched for answers. My son was 17, a momma's boy, was intelligent, was popular, loved by everyone he came in contact with and had goals of becoming a missionary and was planning his first mission trip for the summer of 2017. He loved God with all his heart and soul. He carried his Bible to school with him everyday and helped so many people and led many to the Lord. Nothing, absolutely nothing made sense. He left a note and told us he loved us but he couldn't fight the war in his mind anymore. He just wanted to stop hurting. Since his death I have encountered so many people who have ignorant uninformed opinions and have never experienced the pain of suicidal ideation or a direct suicide loss. It is hard to have to deal with insensitive ignorant people especially after losing a child. And in my search for answers I found that not only can mental illnesses result in suicide but suicide can also, be a result from a side effect of a prescription medication. Nobody would blame the cancer patient, or diabetic if their disease claimed their life so why do we blame those who died from their mental illness?! I want to thank you for the information you have shared it has helped me.
