Two years ago I lost my uncle in the most devastating way. I dont remember much of when i found out, just that i was talking to a friend and my cousin called me.
I switched over to talk to her and, through a voice thick with tears, she delivered the most earth shattering news i think i've ever received.
"Cait.... uncle ray... hes gone. He killed himself Caity."
..... I dont remember much other than sobbing and screaming. Screaming for it not to be true, this... this couldnt happen, not to my family. My older brother held me while i sobbed and i then turned to my mom for comfort. Her Oldest brother, my aunts twin, my cousins father, my second cousins grandfather... he was gone.
And nothing could bring him back.
A lot of my family has issues, alcoholism, depression, bipolar. But we never imagined it was so bad that our beloved family member sought the need to remove himself from this world, all too soon.
Its not much to a lot of people, but its a lot to me. I plan to walk in the Walk out of the Darkness for suicide prevention and awareness, and i'd really appreciate donations for this organization. So no family has to endure what mine did. Theres such a stigma and taboo around suicide. But if we take that away, so many more would, COULD, get help.
I dont usually do this, going around begging for money, but id really appreciate just this once. Thank you. afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?…
