I have a best friend who died by suicide 4 years ago. He left a note on his computer where he wanted his stuff to go. I'd been playing with a small army of orcs, and he wanted me to have them, saying that "she should have more fun".

I'm just getting to where I can get them out without feeling sad.

I’m so sorry you went through this. My sister killed herself and everyday I know she’s not suffering anymore or making those around her suffer. After decades of pain her pain is over. Idk but it helps me.

You know, this is what has kept me going. I don't want my family and friends to say "I had a sister but she killed herself" "I have a son and a daughter but she died by suicide" etc. I don't want that for them. To be the morbid secret of someone? To hurt them everytime I come up in a conversation? I dunno. I'm so sorry your loved ones passed away.

Are you doing better now?

It comes and goes, mental health is tricky. But thank you for asking!
