Suicide survivor

Hi everyone! I’m so glad I found this group and hope I can help one person fight another day or help a survivor know you can get through this. A little bit about my story, I grew up with my amazing mother. Unfortunately she ended her life (this was about 12th attempt throughout the years) when I was only 15 years old and I found her 5 days later hanging in our basement. My life was shattered. Clearly there is so much more to the story but here I am 20 years later and I have came to terms with her decision. Trust me lots of self care, therapy, grief groups, finally getting sober (8 years now) and more. Please feel free to ask me anything. Thanks for reading everyone (PS the picture I included is 1 of the 3 I have of her, one is her and the other one is my mom and me when I was little !!! #Suicide #SuicideSurvivor #greif #MentalHealth #SuicideLoss #AfterSuicideLoss #Depression #whatifs #Guilt #missmymom #SuicideSquad #suicidesucks

one tough week

I'm not looking for alot of sympathy or anything, maybe just some understanding and support. Early Monday morning I let my emotions get the best of me and I tried to end my own life. I am so mad at myself now for doing it and thankful I'm alive. I was admitted to a behavioral health ward at the hospital voluntarily. While I was there, on Christmas night my nephew was overrun by his own thoughts and emotions and he shot himself and passed away. There are so many emotions and things I was still trying to process of my own that is making this all so hard. My family is concerned of course but most of their support is going to my sister which is understandable, but wow is this hard. His funeral is Monday and I'm just going through the motions. People don't even realize but they make comments that are so hurtful, and they kind of pertain to me as well as him. Only thing is I didn't die. I'm grateful for that, but this situation is horrible. #imstillalive #suicidesucks #Family #understandmypain



My life has been a mess since my nephew Zach took his own life. The way it has affected my sister and my niece is horrific. My nephew was 20, a marine reservist and a great cousin to my daughter. No one saw it coming. He was smart, handsome, brave, funny, loyal, and so many other things. I was so proud of him for serving our country. I still am proud. Losing someone to suicide is gut wrenching. Every day I ask why. Why did he do it? Why didn’t he call his mom? They were so close. He said he was fine. Now she is empty. We are all confused as to why he did it. It’s been 6 weeks but it feels like yesterday. #suicidesucks
