| | Coping with the suicide of a family member.
My Name is Valerie. I'm 25 years old. Twelve hours ago I found out that my sixteen year old brother killed himself. There was no note, he had never shown signs of depression. He was energetic and bright, intelligent and funny. I loved him more then anything in the world. He just reacted to his emotions and in an instant he was gone forever. I cant change it, all-though I would give anything to bring him back. I dont know what to do, he was only 16. He was so important to me. My family is broken, my child hood home is tarnished by this violent act. How do I move forward and more importantly how do I help my family move forward. This is still so surreal to me. Im just hoping to connect with people who understand my pain and confusion. Im so confused and delusional right now, I keep calling and texting him. I dont know what to do.
