it has been 8 years since my boyfriend of 12 years killed himself.I found his body in the yard of the house we were renting.I held him in my arms and that's when he died.He was 49 and I still feel like it is my fault.I saw the changes and I tried.And I do wish that I could have helped him and I do wish that things were a little better for me but I do miss him and all of the cats.I live in senior housing house and here things are different.The people in seattle are not at all friendly.Noone knows here and it is just as well.All of this has totally devasted me and I will never forget him.he was the love of my life and I am going to be 70 soon..so it will be my last and I do know that he is watching me cause I do feel him and I am finally getting help for this anxiety and depression.It is so hard and here well....So lets reach out and try to understand depression.I certainly did not and he did not talk to me in the final months.any comments will be appreciated.

Thank you for this website! It has been immensely helpful to me as a mental health professional and a friend of a family who has just entered this world. I am working to provide them with a bibliotherapy resourse list and library and found so much more that I thought I would on a website! Thank you for turning your loss into a resource for the world! Light and love, Kristen McLaren Treu, LPC
