Not a HIV topic, but I am sad.
      #186952 - 04/18/06 10:21 PM

Hi family,
Well, I got some disturbing news today. My friends son killed himself. He was 25. He hung himself, I guess he was pretty intoxicated when he did it. It makes my heart just ache so bad for his mom, dad and little brother. WHY WHY WHY?? Noone knows. I just needed to vent. Sorry if I disturbed the board. I love you guys and I just wanted you to know how precious you are to me. Like the song goes, "YOUR BEAUTIFUL, YOUR BEAUTIFUL, YOUR BEAUTIFUL....TO ME. James Blunt.

There are so many who are one step closer or one step further from making decisions like that.. I think many of us have felt that hopelessness, the loss, the desperation, the worry that can compel someone to go to this extreme. I for one am glad I have not been there in awhile.

"Long term solution to a short term problem"

I am so sorry that so many are being affected by one person's decision.

Love and Peace,

A life, a story,
a brother, a friend.
I still can't reason why,
your journey had to end.

I try not to get angry.
Gee, how I've tried.
I've tried to see your anguish,
and the pain you felt inside.

But there is a certain stigma,
its something I wish I'd never heard,
I wish that it just wasn't possible,
I wish that there was no such word.

Because life can be a roller coaster,
most times its a bumpy ride,
but why did you have to get off,
and choose to suicide ?

I know that your life,
was cut way too short,
I've tried adding up the logic,
and at times it comes to naught.

You were always searching for something,
but I'm not quite sure what,
you did everything with a passion,
you gave it your very best shot.

And life is not forever,
time only goes one way,
and everyone will leave this earth,
everybody has that day.

And all that is ever left,
are the memories to hand,
to treasure against the tides of time,
like footprints in the sand.

Sadface,
Sometimes we'll never know the reasons "why" things happen or what motivates someone to do terrible acts. My little cousin (he is about 14) tried to hang himself almost a year ago as well. Luckily, his father found him just in time to start CPR. The Paramedics said if a minute more had gone by, he would of died. It was a very difficult time for us and a big wake up call. No one saw it coming.
My heart goes out to your friend's family...

Oh Saddie, what can I say? I feel so sorry about what has happened; ya know.. it crossed my mind more than once, and there are at least two times when I think I seriously considered it; the first time I had a very sharp sable.. Before I realized I was aiming at my abdomen.. now I think.. dang.. how crazy.. Another time I drove my SUV onto traffic at at least 100mph.. good thing it wasn't too late when I changed my mind and found I way to avoid the stopped vehicles. Guys this is serious, now that the sun starts to shine again for me, I realize what a fool I was being. Now I thank God for keeping me safe, for I have two huge reasons to live.. my wife and my baby girl on the way.

I know you friends didn't know this episode but since it falls within the subject, plus I needed to get it out. Thank you for being there, and hopefully this will help others.

God bless,

Thank you all for your sincere words, poems and compassion at such a difficult time. He was such a nice good looking boy, and my heart just aches for his family. It makes me so thankful for my life, my husband, daughter and I can't forget my DAWG. I love my DAWG!! Thanks so much...the wake is Friday and funeral Saturday. Love and prayers...SF

Remember what I have said many times "life is short, we don't know what tomorrow brings" and when it brings hurt we vent in the only way that seems logical to us. Another thing that I have posted in many posts where people say they are going to kill themselves is "Just remember that it is not the easy way out, and it hurts everyone around you who loves you and you have touched". I have lost a few people close to me; I know how hard it is when you ask "Why". We never know the real reasons they think this only option, but we do know it is painful to those who were close and there is nothing we can do to help. Even if we had been there to help would it have? Thousands of questions, it is hard, but it is in the past now. We have to take the next step forward; we can’t go back and change the past. Just keep him close in your heard, your mind, and step forward with your head high, which is all we can do now.

Dear sadface,

I'm so sorry to hear such sad news. One of my best freinds did the same thing about 20 years ago. I too did not see it coming and did not understand why a young man of 25 years would do such a thing with so much to live and look forward to. One never knows why.

just to comfort you, and to better days ahead. Be well.

Mis, I'm so sorry. That is just horrible news. To think someone was so distressed they didn't feel there was another option just breaks my heart. Kindof a wake up call....let your loved ones know you are there for them....let them know they are not alone and that you will be there through eerything. My heart aches for the family.

Much Love and prayers
