  1. T — I’m worried about you.

    I don’t know you, but I read your blog on a regular basis. You remind me of my brother in a lot of ways. And I’m concerned for you.

    I don’t want to intrude or cause trouble, but if you really feel desperate and hopeless, it may be time to seek some help. Do it for your sons, if nothing else.

    My own father took his own life when I was 13. The repercussions of that act resonate with me even today, at age 42. Help wasn’t really available when he needed it, but there is a lot of mental health counselling and such available now. Please, please avail yourself of it.

    If you just need a virtual shoulder to lean on — someone not too close, to whom you can vent and not worry about consequences, I’m more than willing to serve as a non-judgmental ear

    Take good care, friend. I mean that.
