    Last night my mom attempted suicide

    while my nine year old sister was in the next room. I was at work when one of my co-workers told me my sisters were out front. When I went out into the lobby the look on their faces said something was seriously wrong. When I walked up to them they told me that my mother was...

    I swear it runs in my family.

    Lost an uncle and an aunt to it; my sister has attempted, I've attempted as well as my brother, another uncle and aunt and my mom talks about wanting to do it sometimes. We must keep fighting and utilizing all of the resources possible to deal with these demons.

    My mom tried to kill herself with a knife at

    her throat when I was 8. She also almost drove to the beach while drunk just to drown herself. She told me she would shoot me in the face and then shoot herself if she could, and we had to call the ambulance last week because she threatened to commit suicide.

    Last night my dad made a suicide attempt,

    and after begging to be killed he was sedated by a doctor. He's been battling depression for years and recently had a psychotic episode. Thankfully he didn't turn violent, as he was alone with my younger sister at the time, but it easily could have been a lot worse. Since then...

    I never knew my parents had done this.

    .. When I was 9 years old, my parents both attempted suicide. My mother tried hanging herself, and my father OD-ed twice. I just found out a few days ago, and though I know it's the wrong thing to do, I blame myself. I got an In School Suspension for "skipping class" because of...

    They aren't blood, but I love them enough to

    call them family. They're my two best friends and I'm so scared they'll pull the trigger, cut to deep, slip into the noose, or OD everyday. They have their good days and their bad days, but their bad days overpower the good. I can barely help them, cause when they're in a very...
