I wanted to take the time to acknowledge a family that lost their son to suicide on December 1, 2010. It breaks my heart to read his mother's words and it takes me back to when I ALMOST lost my son. I cry when I think about ALMOST losing my son, I cry just worrying that today could possibly be the day I lose him...but for this family it did happen and my heart goes out to them. It has made me realize that I need to stop worrying about what could happen and focus on the time I have with him. Thank you to Mrs. Sefcik for sharing your story and I will forever be grateful that you helped me realize that time is too precious to worry about losing someone I have not lost yet. I would like to share something she has made for him in his memory.
I'm a mother with an agenda to save her son from the grips of his mental illness and stop stigma so that those who suffer in silence can seek help without fearing the worse. Join me on this roller coaster ride..you're no longer alone.
