    Sad news, sorry for the loss of your brother.

    So sorry for your loss. Some suffer so much internally that while we as loved ones can't understand why they would choose to end their lives, it's the only way for them to end their suffering.

    Of course it doesn't feel any better being the ones left behind with questions of " what if's" and "why?"

    I hope you talk to someone who can help you process this loss and again I'm very sorry for your loss.(((hug)))

    I am overwhelmed by the responses.... I started to cry... just a bit. I speed read through all the pages so far, but I will go back and read carefully everyone's post again... I just couldn't keep reading.....

    but you have no idea how much these posts mean to me. Some of you know me personally and we have interacted in real life. Some here are screen names showing real human beings behind them just by taking a moment to post something...... something I never got while in the cult.... real humans -- real feelings.

    Thank you so much

    I wish I had something of great impact to say, but all I can offer is my deepest condolences and to let you know not to judge your feelings. Let them be what they'll be. Don't try to control them. I'm so sorry.
