Today would have been my brothers 39th birthday. It’s somewhat absurd constantly thinking “when does the pain end” or at the very least, “when does it get easier”.

Families that have worked with and around mental illness know that they can’t predict anything. My mother, who has an almost holy connection with God, was emotionally and spiritually prepared many years in advance. I still go through the events (like a true heathen) trying to make a different outcome. I love you brother, sister.
