In memory of my brother

Written by Amie on December 14, 2008 – 2:15 am -

Today was my brother’s birthday. He would have been 35. He committed suicide March 25, 2007, one day after my birthday. The day wasn’t as difficult as I thought it might be. I did feel very sad this morning, and I let myself just sit and cry. I also went to get a massage this afternoon, which was wonderful. During the massage, I had a mantra in my head. I said that I am receiving the nurturing all the way into my cells. I decided that I would nurture myself in honor of my brother. He had a very difficult time giving himself any nurturing, or just giving himself a break. I did two meditations in honor of my brother today, which helped me to feel closer to him.

I am going to keep this short today, because I am tired. I am available to talk to anyone who would like to know more about my experience with suicide. If you have a child who is depressed, or a loved one, please write to me. I am here to share information and insight. I have a lot to say on this subject, and experience with deep depression myself and in my family.
