I don't care who you are, or how unloved you think you may be. Suicide leaves a hole in the lives of those who loved you. My uncle left behind his children, both his parents and me. The guilt that I, and the rest of my family have for not recognizing his pain is indescribable. We knew he was sad:he had lost his job and his ex-wife had taken full custody of his two youngest children. But, living in different states we didn't realize just how sad he was until it was too late.    
   
   
If you're feeling hopeless please get help. If you notice people showing the signs of extreme depression or signs of being suicidal get them help (even if its just calling the police and getting them put on suicide watch) let them be mad at you now, so that later they see how much you love them, and they can be around to thank you for it.    
   
Just so everybody knows, this week is National Suicide Prevention week here in the US. Speaking as someone who lost her uncle in June of 2012, if you ever need to talk, I am here. I don't know any of you so i'd be anonymous. or if you wanted to talk to someone live 1(800) Suicide.
