What's left? I've tried it all

Keeping as simple as I can, and I very rarely can. I'm trying though. I had one near death experience out of the 5 times I died. At my own hand. Varying types blood pressure pills up to 80. Critical care for days then ICU for another 7. That was my second attempt since an assault, 5 weeks earlier, on me that caused facial, eye, and head trauma and loss of my vehicle. It's what followed that is much worse. My dad shot in chest but ruled suicide?!!!!! No way.....But my own mom and remaining siblings took my inheritance. I just can't fight for my 25%. I've never recuperated those past 2 months of others fighting for my life. Hundred labs a day. It was a miracle I lived. Physically very sick though still. Mentally not good either. They sold all my belongings treasures, memories. Me and my son's are torn apart though we have fought since homelessness since December. I miss talking to my mom . Miss my dad. But my near death experience changed some things for me. I don't get to die really. Not lights out forever. I just get to blink a few seconds and damn I'm still aware. I am wearing down fast. We have to leave this awful RV we've lived in, 2 days ago though we paid to stay here. I have no way to do anything. When it feels like the end , what do you do to find hope? # overwhelmed #Grief #AfterSuicideLoss #SuicideSurvivor #healthissues #familybetrayal

Has anyone lost compassion? What stage is this? It seems my closest family members and friends are on the receiving end of this.

Is it safe for you to say "I'm going to therapy"?

Confusion

I survived a very serious suicide attempt, luckily it catapulted me into the world of recovery. However, i struggle with being angry and not understanding why my person took her life by gun only two weeks ago. I feel like I should have more understanding, compassion, and empathy since I had been where she was, only I failed, thankfully.

My world has changed

Two weeks ago, in received the news that my aunt killed herslef. My aunt was my best friend and my person. She was the person I told everything to first; before my mom, my dad, brother and friends.
We both are creative and had the propensity for all nighters. We texted and chatted on the phone all all the time. During those all nighters, we often times had each other on speaker phone while crafting-not even talking, just taking solace in knowing the other was there.
What I am struggling with is feeling so alone and like a piece of me is missing. I am stuggling with not knowing why-she didn’t leave a note. Lastly, what turns my stomach into knots and guts me, is how she did it. She shot herself. Not only are we struggling with a sudden loss and a suicide but the violence of how she did it. That fact that she was trying to make a statement but no one know what that statement is or to who. How do I move on, grieve and deal wirh the struggle when I can’t make sense of any of it?
