Default not my story, but it may help someone.

This isn't my story but it is one that effects someone I love very much.

My boyfriend of 3 1/2 years has lost two friends to suicide. One was about a week before we began dating. His friends hung himself at age 21, leaving behind grieving friend, family, and his girlfrind of 2 years. No one ever understood why. If there is a god, I think him that I was there for my boyfriend at a time when he needed someone, otherwise I don't know what he would have done.

His other friend died years before at age 16. He stood in front of a train. It was not until we had been together a few years that my boyfriend told me the story. Apparently, evidence suggests that his friend changed his mind at the last minute and tried to jump out of the way, but the train hit him anyway. He was found alive but could not be saved. He lived a few hours before dying of his injuries.

I just wanted to share this story to give people a chance to think. When contemplating suicide, all I can say is give it time. Things may not seem to be getting any better, but you never know. The people in both these guys' lives were devastated by the news of their deaths. They grieve for them both to this day.

jessibelle

thanks for this story. your boyfriend has suffered a lot and that's so sad.

you are right. the devastation to the people left behind is unmeasureable. it continues to ripple through time and the helpless of feeling of grieving a suicide is nearly insane. your boyfriend has learned this well, as i gather, so have you.

thanks again. wise words you put here.
