My eldest son committed suicide last night 😢
Had a phone call this morning from my Dad telling me that my eldest son (from a previous relationship) was found late last night. He lived with my parents so they were the police’s first port of call. Still no details on why, waiting to find more out.
He was 20 years old, his whole life ahead of him. Thanks to his Mother playing mind games with him in the past we weren’t as close as we should have been, but things were heading in the right direction lately.
I’m completely and utterly devastated. Struggling to comprehend anything at the moment. I’ve always said the only thing I imagine is worse than losing a partner is losing a child, sadly both for me is now a reality.
RIP my first born son, you were very loved and will be greatly missed by all 😢Posted 2 months ago

Shit, mate – you’ve been through some couple of years.
Really sorry to hear this. Young people have been through the wringer this year and a lot are suffering. I’ve a daughter his age living away from home and it scares me shitless.
Nothing to say beyond the usual; help each other, get support for you and your kids wherever it’s offered and whenever it’s neededPosted 2 months ago

I’ve good friends from university who’s son committed suicide 4 years ago. They are heavily involved in Papyrus, who seem to have been a steady support for them.
Please reach out to Papyrus or any of u on here (even though I feel woefully ill-equipped to help).

Just read this on my phone so didn’t see the poster’s name until I clicked through. Words utterly fail to describe how I felt when I saw who it was and what had happened.
The only thing I can say is to echo what everyone else has said above. We’re all thinking of you and if you ever need to just vent, talk, seek advice, help or just in desperate need of a distraction we’re all here for you at any time.Posted 2 months ago
If hugs from a stranger on an internet forum help, have a huge one from me. So sorryPosted 2 months ago
