I lost a childhood friend to suicide this past month. He was like a kid brother growing up, always happy, always goofy, just all around a good kid. Over the years, our lives grew out of touch and I had no idea he was struggling with depression. So when I saw an invite to his funeral expense fundraiser from his older brother on Facebook, I was confused and upset and all around just in a sh*tty mood. I'm an emotional, empathetic person that can't help but feel for every individual that is dealing with personal pain. Even now as I'm writing this I'm emotional. This will be the second person I've lost to a battle with depression. I hope it will be the last, but I can only be optimistic. Please take time for your mental health. Thank you.
(PS thank u to Iames for prodding me on messenger every week or so to see where I've gone. I appreciated that.)
