In 2014 my son took his life. We had no clue. He reached out 3 times that night, and the person never responded. I still fight my demons daily. The guilt is overwhelming at times. My family has been my inspiration. If it wasn’t for them I don’t know where I would be. I kept on asking God what my purpose in life was. He answered that in 2016. I became my parents full time caregiver. I ended up having to quit my job. My mom passed away in 2021, from dementia. My dad has dementia. I’m not able to leave him by his self. I have a sister that doesn’t give me much help. So I’m at home 24/7 with no breaks.

Today 11/09/2022 he went under hospice care. He’s gets very agitated and combative at times. It’s very stressful and demanding job. But I don’t want him in a home. Like I said if it wasn’t for my kids and grandkids. My demons would consume me. Thanks for letting me share.
