These Words Saved Me From Suicide

These Words Saved Me From Suicide

I have been suicidal three times in my life.

The first instance was after my dad took his life.

In 2002, at the age of 50, my dad was paralyzed in a hunting accident. My dad was building a tree stand when the branch broke underneath of him and in an instant, he fell two stories straight to the ground.

Not far from retirement, my dad felt robbed out of life, became very depressed, and eventually developed a serious gambling addiction which led to my mom leaving my dad in May of 2007.
