didnt think Id be here and especially with the death of my husband. My beautiful DH had a very serious car accident in May which resulting in head injuries and multiple injuries. He then had surgery and alot of rehab. He then slipped into a depression that no-one was able to assist him with. He attempted suicide a few months back in our family home which was a real shock, we took this a cry for help and sent him to a private hospital for help, unfortunately the mental health system in NSW and probably all of Australia failed him and he was discharged after the psychiatrist said he was remorseful and not a risk of attempting again. Well 3 weeks on he snuck out of the house at night and was successful this time.
Ive lost my best friend, lover and soul mate, we where meant to grow old together, he has left behind his 2 beautiful kids DS8 and DD6, surprisingly they are coping quite well and Im keeping myself busy but i cant believe I will never see him again. Im so angry and sad at the same time.
Wish I could just rewind back to that horrid night and say "I love You" and please stay with us.
No need for reply just need to express and vent.
Thanks for reading.
