Loss of Loved One

by Tatyana
(Florida, USA)

I started to try killing myself at age 16. I felt like my heart stopped when my grandma died. I couldn't deal with it. I went to the kitchen and got the knife. I was aiming it at my arm and was cutting myself. When I was aiming it at my chest, my dad caught me. He knew I was going through a rough time. He gave me a hug and told me,"calm down sweetie." It made me feel better when he told me that. I wouldn't be here if he wasn't there with me.

My dad helps me with rough times. Also if you read the story, "Abused at 3." That's me. I'm doing great now. But, my dad still makes sure im ok. I don't attempt suicide anymore. im doing great.

Wonderful that you've got someone in your life (your dad) to help you through those very challenging, almost impossible, moments. I commend and applaud him for being there for you. And I commend and applaud that you recognize how important he is to you. He can help you to grow and strengthen so that you can heal even more, and then help others heal. That would be so purposeful. Thank you for sharing with my visitors and me.
