“NEED TO READ THIS”
Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: A week ago I posted a pick for my friend Emily! Emily lost her 15 year old daughter. Maddie was bright fun & intelligent! She was beautiful and also was a second degree blackbelt & the captain of her Lacross team. She had a steady boyfriend & a loving mom. Tons of friends, everyone loved her. At the service, the room was packed, instructors, teachers, teammates, friends, neighbors, church attenders, family~ easily over 200 people.
Still, Madeline took her own life. All these people Loved her, yet she felt so isolated....whatever problems she had she felt she couldn't overcome, and she didn't talk about it. So I want you all to read this, and think, and Question! Our children have hard lives, pressure from classes, and lessons, Algebra, boyfriends, class mates, ect. No one could tell that Maddie was suffering. No one thought to ask!
This is hard to talk about; harder I think than many illnesses, but a few questions can make all the difference. A reminder that you are there, and willing to listen, can make a difference. There are signs that this may be a problem: Loss of interest, witdrawl, isolation... sudden mood changes, loss of freindship, breakups, death of a loved one. It only takes a minute to open the dialog "are you going to hurt yourself" or more direct "are you thinking of killing yourself" it is not comfortable to speak about, but it can save lives! If anyone of you is interested in additional info on how to talk to your children about this, just let me know.
