It will be one year on Sunday that our precious daughter took her life. Her brother (age 26)died in 2014 of colon cancer when she was starting sophomore year in high school
She never really was able to move past this devastating event that took her only big brother. We have found that an adverse reaction to a asthma medication likely caused the trigger for her to not be able to stop the depression demons.
The reason I am writing this is because I wanted to re-iterate that cancer is a FAMILY disease. It affects all in the circle of families which are made up of all loved ones including friends. Please watch and spend time with young ones, care takers-take care of your self when you can-schedule take care of me days. Cancer patients, if you are depressed or anxious and you can't shake it, get help. My daughter who is 19 months older than her sister that passed has been in therapy since last july and has really gotten good tools to help with her ptsd and anxiety/depression.
Don't be embarassed or shamed that you feel you can't get help, it is not a weakness or lack of faith or whatever you thought that stops you from getting help.
You are all loved, needed and are a unique part of this world
