So for the last month, I have passed by this “heart” on the sidewalk when I run. Because I am not tied to anything electronic when I run, I have not had the phone to take a picture of it. But today walking the dog, I had it.
It looks like the heart was turned upside down and drained. That is so precisely how I feel some days. I think recent loss of a 15-year-old girl at James River High who died by suicide has left me feeling helpless and defeated. Which means tomorrow I will wake up to fight harder. You can count on it.
One thought on “Drained heart – #griefheart number 183”
You are doing so much to get the sad topic of suicide discussed. Sometimes my heart also feels drained as I deal with a daily struggle to help my alcoholic mentally ill son. I am grateful that he is alive after several suicide attempts. His getting a DUI has forced him to attend daily AA meetings. But because my husband (his father) died by suicide, it is always a strong possibility for him. It is so difficult to help, but not enable. My heart and brain are in constant conflict with this issue.
