I’ll never forget that day; it was the last day I saw my best friend’s face. We were in the 8th grade, and we were ending the academic day to begin our weekend. Originally, he was going to spend the evening with a mutual close friend and me, but he opted to go home.
In retrospect, Sean didn’t seem fine, but the excitement of our school’s sporting events clouded my judgment … Read more...
Author’s note: this is neither wholly irrational nor rational. There is a method to my madness, and madness to my method. This is a perspective, a state of mind; not a statement of fact but a report from the shadows most dare not report on.
I am a monster. I am a burden. I hurt those around me who love me. I hurt those around me who don’t even know I exist. I hurt myself. I hurt.
The previous paragraph is not rational in an objective sense. I know this, intellectually. I can and have run rings … Read more...
We did the first round of auditions today for the audiobook. And the ebook is up online in all countries there is an amazon. If your country is not listed below, go to your Amazon site and search for, “diary of a broken mind anne moss rogers.”
I am driving very fast for I have a destination and I want to get there. Multiple drugs coursing through my bloodstream.
I have my instrument of death. I can’t remember when I last ate, my appetite as extinct as my sleep. Rolling over up and down in the sheets for three months restless as a snake. Sleep depravation ravages one’s soul to a ghostly wan draft.
I move from the loungeroom saying goodbye to an oblivious mother down in the garage. My souped-up old sports car, a Toyota Celica is heavy and reliable. I back out … Read more...
Males are different psychologically and emotionally. My wife and I lost our 17-year-old son after he died suicide on Nov. 7, 2019. The grief is overwhelming, strangling, choking, at times.
I’ll not attempt to convey the grief. One understands, or one does not.
The intimacy of coitus with my wife is the deepest of (the many of) my connections with her, encompassing my love, my emotional and psychological attachment, reaffirmation, on every possible plane you could imagine.
Males are always subconsciously tense, on guard. The old stereotype complaint, his falling asleep after making love? Criticized, some women never … Read more...
To be clear, my father did not die by suicide. My son Charles did but this is a question I hear often. Why would a dad who had children take his life? Why would a mom kill herself when she has children? How could a parent not realize what their death by suicide might do to their child? How could my dad (or mom) leave me like that?
The problem is that people think of suicide as a choice
The myth of suicide is that someone is pondering their future and decides to take the easy way out and end … Read more...
URGENT call to action: Decriminalize Suicide in Virginia- Updated 2/3/2020
HB 1063– Delegate Kaye Kory has introduced house bill 1063 “A Bill to amend the Code of Virginia by adding a section numbered 18.2-16.1, relating to “abolishing the common-law crime of suicide in Virginia.”
I tested the sound twice. And I got there early in the morning to test it again and the room was locked. I searched for anyone and finally ran into a custodian who got me in touch with security to open the door. Hurray! But no time to test sound again because it was time to start.
Ugh. Sound was lame but I found a workaround. Not perfect but it worked well enough. (It’s … Read more...
