Oh shit
 
Just found out my niece committed suicide on Sunday (died this afternoon). This is the first time someone has died leaving me thinking I should have done more to prevent it.

Just needed to vent somewhere safe so I can be strong for my family - thanks for listening.

i never have much to say about these things.

your guilt is natural, whenever a suicide occurs everyone who cares asks if they could have prevented it.

grieve and don't beat yourself up too much. remember while you can influence everyone in the world, you cannot control anyone in the world.

good luck and be strong for your family.

Sorry to hear about that expopcorn. I like PJ's advice. It's tough... sorry again.

We had the funeral today - a very emotional time but also strangely uplifting given the tributes from her friends. She obviously had a real impact on her peers (she was only 17).

One of them said that she had learnt that it is not how you die that matters but how you live. If people only take that away with us then she has left the world a better place than she found it.

I would like to thank you all for your support both in the thread and by pm. It is amazing how cathartic it was just making a post on an anonymous internet forum and it really helped me deal with the last couple of weeks.

Damn dude *man hug* I really have nothing to offer to you other than my deepest sympathy I wish you and yours the best and expedient closure on such a difficult matter.

If you are not offended by such, I offer my prayers to you and yours as well.

Very sorry to learn this Expopcorn. It's always sad when someone you know dies, the only good part for you is that you did not witness it. condolences to you and her parents.

Hey expop,

I don't have anything just wanted you know I think about you and yours often after I read your post, words aren't much help, most of the time peoples attempt just pisses you off more, just know thousands of miles away you and your family have another families deepest sympathies.

I'm sure I speak for most that have seen your post be haven't responded.


Tim
