This Moring’s Battle With A Child’s Depression

We had one of our worst scares this morning when I was awakened by pounding on the front door!

I had family that showed up early this morning with fear that one of my children was taking their life. He had written a text to his twin sister stating that he was giving his possessions to her and couldn’t live any longer with what he faced each day.

The true signs are sometimes never there and can be very well hidden behind ever what seem to be happy faces but what lays behind the mask is torn and confused.

They see no relief and THINK nobody can help them because they feel we just dont understand what they feel or how their battle is to complicated to even explain.

What it’s doing to me and the family is simply exhausting and leaving us scared and feeling helpless.

I’m doing my best to show him he is NOT alone and he is LOVED but now we are facing the question are we enough to help him or is the thought of finding a facility the only choice we have in order to make sure he is SAFE and cared for correctly.

  1. My heart goes out to you and your family… Especially Jae! Hope he can see how much his family loves him and that he can find his self worth and happiness! He may be in a dark place now but things will get better if he can just hold on.

  2. Only within himself will anything or anyone be enough. Your support and acceptance, validating his pain and communicating that you are there for him should help. Obviously he has so much he’s carrying in secrecy. Has he opened up about all of that?

    I just noticed the date. What’s transpired since ?

  3. Yes, you need to call the crisis center near you and tell them hes very sucidal is wants to take his life. They will then admit him in a hospital where he will be well taken care of by professional mental health workers. You can’t stop him on your own because he may listen to you one day but the next day when you wake up he might not be there anymore.
