Have you ever lost a loved one to suicide?
No but my wife has, she's lost her mom dad 4 brothers a sister and last month our son, her brother committed suicide
Yes. My grandpa and a good friend when I was 15. My mom attempted it as well when I was a teenager. It's such a confusing, horrific way to lose someone. I wanted to understand but I was so angry.
I talked two friends out of it but I couldn't talk the third one down.
Yes, a best friend, but never a family member.
Two friends in college. It was incomprehensible.
It's really hard to understand. My friend was very unhappy, and facing a medical crisis. It was just too much for him to handle. I find peace, in knowing that he's at peace now.
Robin Williams? So, no, not really.
No, but a co-worker who was also a friend.
That's sad, anytime it happens.
Yes, very tough to deal with.
How are you doing? I've been thinking about you.
Not bad. I went back to work Thursday. I been talking to a grief counselor and it helps.
I'm glad you have been seeing the counselor. You are going through what I think must be the most difficult thing in life. Someone to talk to is essential.
