The Suicide Grief Support Forum is a public message board, an outreach project of the Parents of Suicides (POS) and Friends and Families of Suicides (FFOS) Internet Communities. The forum officially began on October 2, 2002.
Our mission is to provide information, support and comfort to anyone whose life has been touched by the suicide of another person. Connecting with others who have walked the same road can sometimes make a difference in how we survive a tragedy that may be incomprehensible.
The board is monitored by special volunteers who give freely of their time in memory of the people they lost to suicide.
We do not pretend to be professionals, and we encourage anyone whose needs are greater than can be met here to seek out professional help.
This is not a suicide or crisis hotline. Please contact a counselor, family member, friend, or emergency services if you are having suicidal thoughts.
Or in the USA, call:1-800-SUICIDE 1-800-273-TALK
For Deaf, Hard of Hearing, and People with Speech Disabilities who use a TTY, call 1-800-799-4TTY (4889)

My husband and I are good to all our children. We are extremely close that is probably why we suffer such grief so intensely. Jimsmom, I relate to you a lot. This year we are missing birthdays, graduations, one wedding already. Can't go to them. Funerals especially have been missed, we can send a card or wire flowers but that is the best we have at this time. I swear sometimes people think we just lost a pet and should have gotten over it by now. Sorry for venting but I am sad and angry and I want to scream right now!

She was not affectionate to him unless she wanted a child. She was anorexic, she did not trust people's food, nor would allow anyone including my son to pick out food be cause it could be poison. He had to call her to prove he was at work,or at our house to borrow a tool. We would even have to yell into the phone to prove he was with us. He had to prove he wasn't talking to anyone at work other than work related stuff. He would have to text her through out the day. He would have to stay all night with her during her hospital stay after the birth of each child because she was afraid he would cheat on her. This was my son's life for 4 and a half years married to her. Every month she would really get irate and accuse him of cheating which he did not and ask him for a divorce and tell him he was worthless and she never loved him. This is what he endured before he committed suicide.
This is what we know for a fact happened. She lives with her parents so no one can take her kids from her. We are now left dealing with her so we can see our grandchildren. So if people wonder why I cannot get with the program and go to graduations etc. This is our life.
