My Son In Law Attempted Suicide...

Like Tree314Likes

I'm in shock! My daughter called a few minutes ago to tell me and that he is in the hospital. They've been going thru a tough time financially (almost lost their house) and he's been depressed. I just saw them on Sunday. Jim and I had a late lunch with them and watched some golf. He seemed fine. I'm leaving work early to pick up the kids at school and take them to my place. We're going to say he has a bad tummy ache, so has to be in the hospital for awhile.

I'd appreciate prayers and whatever you can send.

thoughts and prayers coming your way!
I'm so sorry to hear this, but hopefully he's in a place to get some help.

Thanks everyone. I am having such a hard time believing this. I wish I had of known how depressed he was. I would have made an effort to talk to him on Sunday. He and I are very close. I do know that's he's been pretty quiet & serious lately. Usually he's giving me a hard time.

Thank God for Jim. I called him and he's coming home early with pizza for the kids and we're taking them to the pool.

That's very thoughtful of you. They're blessed to have you.

I am very sorry to hear about this upsetting news. I can tell you from personal experience that no one ever notices. We think everything is alright, but there is a war that rages inside. The brain never stops and the pain is overwhelming. The best thing for you to do is to love and support him. Actions speak louder than words. Try not to judge or talk about it. When he's ready he'll open up. Sometimes it is very hard to live for ourselves, but having someone else to live for can help. It helps me.

*hugs* Sending good thoughts your way.

Wow, Lotsa, just reading about the kid from Mesa who it looks like committed suicide up in Oregon when I saw your post. So sorry for you, your daughter and your grandkids. Lots of love and understanding can go a long way in providing the motivation for him to get better. Hope he's at one of our better hospitals! Let me know if I can help at all.

I'm incredibly sorry to hear this. I'm sure he and your daughter are very grateful to have your encouragement, support and help, especially with the kids. I wish you only peace during this trying time; I know that he can get help and things can look up from here so I'm sending all the positive energy your way.

So awful Lotsa. People in that state of mind are very good at hiding their feelings from those closest to them so don't give yourself a hard time for not realising how depressed he is. Dreadful as it is, now it's out in the open hopefully he can get the help he needs. Sending positive thoughts to you and your family.

Very long night. Didn't get to bed until 1am. He was transferred to a different facility so they can address his problems. He doesn't like it there and is blaming my daughter for his being there. He said she never should have called 911. He didn't take enough stuff to actually die. She told him just the fact that he took anything shows he needs help.

I told her to give him some time and not take anything he says personally. Hopefully, he will open up and work with the doctors and staff and get better. I found out he was taking 5 or 6 Xantac (sp?) per day for anxiety. He needs to detox.

Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers. It's nice to be able to come here and unload. No one is being told what happened. Only Jim and I know and of course my curlie friends here.

I am so sorry, ((((Lotsa)))). I'm sending many T's & P's your way. I hope he can talk to someone and get the help he needs, and I am glad his children have you guys right now.

When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??

I'm so sorry Lotsa. I hope he gets the help he needs. Thinking of you and your family during this time.
