Finding Hope in Writing

For some people, they find their hope by expression through writing. While we offer some ways you can do this, we also have articles and poetry from others who have experienced suicide loss.

N.Gough I am so sorry for your loss and all the pressures you are facing. It is so normal for you to be feeling confused and heavy and lonely... this grief thing is such a bastard. I am grieving my brother too and it's unthinkable pain. I hope you can get some help and support...I think it helps to have someone supporting you outside of the family. ..a professional such as a Dr or grief counselor who will help you give yourself permission to grieve as you must. Please seek help. Peace and love to you

It has been 1 year and 8 months since my baby brother died of suicide by hanging. He left himself to be found by my father, I was the last to see him alive the night before. My Mother died one year and 16 days previous to my brothers suicide of a drug over dose. When my Mother died, I knew it was only a matter of time and circumstances before my Brother would take his own life. I saw his life coming to an end clear as the day light. My entire life has fallen apart... I'm constantly being told it is by my own doing. My marriage, my career, my appearance all hangs in the balance of everyone else's perception of my progress meeting their expectations. With so much of this heaviness and loneliness I too am feeling what my little brother must have felt. Suicidal thoughts have been a constant for me since his passing. Am I bad sick and wrong for this confusion and life altering blow. Is anyone out there?!?
