More Prayers :(

My husband's friend and former coworker commited suicide today.

 

My friend's husband who committed suicide the last week of December was laid to rest on the 8th.

 

Last week another military member on our base attempted suicide but was found quickly.

 

The effects of PTSD are very real and rocking our world at the moment. Dh and I are both shocked, heartbroken, and feeling helpless. Prayers for all affected would be appreciated. It breaks my heart that these men are not getting the help they so desperately need.

Oh this is awful. There are no words. Please hold onto your dh. Encourage him to seek treatment. It is not easy to lose so many people.

I'm so sorry to hear this!  I think it's hard for those of us who aren't dealing with PTSD on a daily basis to understand what a huge problem this really is!  I'm praying for his family and for your DH.

Sad news.  We need better access for people who can't find their way out of intense pain without resorting to suicide.  I don't know the answer, but I think that we as a society have failed so many people.Admitting the failure is a big step towards looking for a better solution.

 

Sorry for those involved and impacted.

This must be so hard for you and your friends. I wish there was an easy way to get our vets the help they need and help them realize there are better solutions than death for their hurts. Those poor families and their friends.

 

I hope you and DH are hanging in there and holding each other up through this tough time (well, always really).
