    Hi everyone. My name is jackie and my son took his life in february this year. He was 30. The day he died I promised him that if I could help one person in his name I would do so. So I am here to try and
    offer you support if you'll let me. If I cam help one person get through and find meaning in their life Nik will not have died in vain. So I am here if you need me if not I hope you find the strength to carry on with your lives. God bless you all and keep you strong.

    Thank you so much. Since the death oft son I have been in depression and all I've wanted to do is to be with him. He was a beautiful person so loved and handsome. I've always thought that lifes experiences are given to us for a purpose and maybe Nik's death was meant to
    make me help others. I don't know but I do know I feel such empathy for you all and really want to try and take away some of your pain. Perhaps if I can achieve that you will all bevable to ease my pain a little

    :welcome: to the forum Jackie. I am so sorry to hear about your son. Suicide is so difficult for those that are left behind as survivors. I hope you have found someone to talk with and share your feelings. You will need much support in the future as there are so many memories to deal with and thoughts to be put in place. I thank you for wanting to honor him by helping others. At this site, there are many people that can use your insight. Remember to draw on our support as well. :hug:
