For those who struggle, it is a nightmare.  For those who have had their lives torn apart because a loved one committed suicide, the pain continues.  The questions continue.  Suicide of a loved one often destroys the lives of those left behind.

Please join me for a free online webinar as we discuss a mother's promise to help prevent suicide.

I Never Gave Up

No matter how difficult it got, I kept going.  As much as I had been through, I think I had every right to not keep going.  Somehow I always managed.  Somehow, I never gave up.

Even in the midst of trying circumstances when life seemed hopeless.  Even when it felt like I had no ounce of energy to keep going.  In times that my mind said, enough is enough you fool!  I never gave up.

When my legs would not function and my body was shaking uncontrollably from pseudo seizures of conversion disorder, I never gave up.  When it felt like I would never walk again, remember anything again, or function normally, somehow I never gave up.

Even in times where I feel all alone and it seems like the world is against me.  Even in times where I don't understand what lies ahead or why I struggle so much at times, I keep going.

I don't understand how I never give up.  Sometimes the demons I face, the nightmares that play in my mind and the memories that keep me awake make it almost impossible to keep going.

Somehow and for some reason I keep going.
