My son is in college and he is the oldest one out of my three boys well he goes to the University of Florida and he is an extremely bright kid and I love him dearly. Well we got a call today first from the school that our son was in the ICU after attempting suicide and then after i hung up with them the hospital called to basically say the same thing well my husband and I are going to head up there here shortly we talked to his girlfriend who actually found him and she is so distraught I don’t know what to do no one saw it coming he is one of the most happiest kids you will ever meet!!! I don’t know what to feel or anything I am not sure how to tell his little brothers!

Kirra,

My prayers are with you and your family. I would tell the younger siblings that your older son needs you right now, but would not mention suicide yet. Talk to your older son and the hospital and go from there.

I am so sorry for your troubles. My 25 year-old daughter has attempted twice. She suffers from depression and the first time it was not treated. The second time, she stopped taking her medicine. Here is a link that might help:

This is not your fault and for the other kids, depending on their ages, honesty is the best policy. Take care of yourselves and believe that he will recover. You are in my prayers.

My prayers are with you and your family. Sometimes we just do not understand how these things happen. May peace be with you, your family and your son.

I am hoping you and your son are finding some answers to what is going on. These things take the rug right out from under us! Take care and ask for help.
