He was 19 years old, and was a wonderful kid. Our family has a history of clinical depression, and he struggled for years. He had such a happy childhood, and we didn’t know that he was so sad. He was getting medical help for the last 6 months, but it wasn’t enough. He never asked for help, and we didn’t know he was suicidal. I wish to God he asked for help.
His brother and sister (ages 11 and 13), found him hanging in our garage. I took him down. Our lives will never be the same. We’ve been crying for 3 weeks now, I don’t know how we can ever move on.
If you’re suffering, please ask for help. There are a lot of people that really want to help you. I hope no family will have to suffer like ours is right now.
