Know the Signs

leave a comment »


I awakened this morning to the following post on facebook:  “I want to die”.  Needless to say, every alarm in my head went off .  I checked my text messages, and the same person had texted me:  “Well, things are worst than ever.  suicide seems like the best way to go now”.   Let me first say that he’s alive and well.  Secondly, this is a young man I’ve known a few years.  And, it’s been a struggle for him the entire time I’ve known him.  He doesn’t want to die.  He wants the pain, suffering, and struggling to go away.  Sound familiar?  I do know that he suffers from depression, so I contacted him right away.  Depression, however, is just one of the warning signs to look for.  Can you name 4 more?  Most people can’t.  In order to bring this sad chapter in our history to an end, we need to educate and re-educate ourselves. LEARN THE WARNING SIGNS!!!! (lives depend on it)
