I Lost My Husband to Suicide
On May 29, 2007 , my husband of 9 years chose to end his life. It was not the first time he tried, but this time he made sure that it worked. He had been diagnosed with depression and had been on medication for 5 years (a condition that I had insisted on after his first attempt in order for us to stay together). I really felt that he was bi-polar, but he had never been diagnosed. He had quit taking his medication one month prior to his death and had seemed to be doing just fine. That all changed in a matter of hours. What started out as a fun, memorial day family outing ended in his death.
