as a teenager, I was too close! my brother had been murdered and I blamed myself because he had asked me to go with him that night. The months that followed that terrible night I became more and more depressed, did not talk to anyone about my feelings. After finishing high school, to eveyone on the outside, I seemed as a normal teen ager. The law had not arrested anyone to point the blame at and I was wanting blood for revenge.
One evening I loaded my pistol with six in the chamber, cocked it and placed the barrel in my temple. With finger on the trigger, I decided to call a friend to hear at least one last sweet voice before scattering my brains. That long distance phone call lasted over two hours and I realized that life was worth living no matter what. I never mentioned my intentions to my friend until some twenty years later! Things I couldn't see back in the eighties was how my life would change for the better, loving wife and great kids and family. Most of all growing closer to God!
Over the years during my career as a paramedic, I have seen too many who are down and out in life. Some have killed themselves but I hope that I have been able to help others by sharing my story. This in itself took over ten years to be able to do. It is a slow healing process. I use to think that those who spoke of susicide was only blowing smoke but this isn't true. As I have spoken to several who over the years talked the talk. Then after recieving counsel, they walked the final walk.
If you know of someone who needs to talk to someone that has been there call the church of Christ at Pikeville, leave a message for Pat and I will get back to you quickly.

i am sorry for the tragic loss of your brother , how very sad ..
but what about those who threaten it all the time and make you feel like you are responsible for them , they refuse to get professional help and end up feeling like a burden on life and never actually commit suicide but use it to try to control another's actions ... example , "i will kill myself , life is not worth living without you" that sorta crap ?? how dose one deal with that ?

no... ppl have it really hard and feel so unwanted they drive themselves to that.. it's not for attention at all. my uncle just passed away from that.. Hugh Randall? yeah... his wife told him she wanted nothing to do with him and he could die, something like that... lil kids who say it just for ppl to pity them is different tho
