On Saturday night our daughter left to go to her senior prom. By 6pm she took her own life. Colon cancer took her brother and her depression went to hyper mode. She never spoke of her brother, and many other things.
We are shattered, cancer kills but depression is just as @deadly. Survivors, caretakers, loved ones are vulnerable to hopelessness. Get help, if you see someone withdraw then suddenly seem OK, anything like that please get them to go get help. We tried, she had gone to counseling. We tried to get her to admit it and go to a hospital but she knew we couldn't make her.
Gather your family and friends and tell them you love them.
