I wonder what it must feel like for a parent to….

by its_my_fault_how

See your oldest son wither away right before your eyes. I’m a parent of a 6 and 4 year old. I am a veteran who could barley stand on two feet before the military. Sprinkle some uncle sam b/s into the equation and you have damaged goods.

But as a parent…what’s it like to watch your oldest son wither away like an parched plant. I know it’s gotta be tough. I have ignored and self medicated my mental illness to the point where I am debilitated. They are old school and wounds you can’t see dont exist. Plus, being 34 on the cot in the living room while your 6 year old sleeps in her aunts room and your youngest is with her mother, the real adult. An overdose doesn’t have to be many, just 1 over the recommended.

Hi, there are various aids for military veterans, please check them out:

https://www.army.mil/soldierresources/

If I remember right, I had read somewhere that they offer housing to a soldier’s family while he’s on duty, and I’m not sure if off-duty too. I guess they offer something similar for retired veterans?

Please contact the telephone line that helps military personnel: https://www.veteranscrisisline.net/get-help/military-crisis-line

overdoses actually tend to be very unpleasant and rarely works. its not as simple as “just 1 over the recommended”. please dont do anything impulsively. youll only end up in the hospital.

Suicide by overdose is far from a sure thing. You definitively do not want to survive a suicide attempt. It would worsen you situation immensely, including for your family.
