I have lost family...friends and acquaintances to suicide. Speaking from personal experience...getting through the night is the beast. A new day always brings hope. If you know someone...or you are struggling with thoughts or desires to end it all...stop. Call someone or take a walk. Find a place that will "listen to your heart". The walk to...the time spent at this "special place"...and the walk back will give you relief...answers...and hope. Call 1-800-273-8255 and just talk to someone. It is completely confidential and you will not be judged or belittled. You are special. You are not insignificant. You are vital. Make it through the night...and the new day will reveal to you that the pain is not as great...the hope flickers. Fan it to a flame. It does get better.
