Still Hurts – Two years later

IMG_9615

It has been two years this month since our son took his life.

He was 42 years old; married with young children;

successful energetic guy; he worked at AT&T; he was an athlete;

rode Mountain Bikes; was a health nut;

took supplements and he also was an alcoholic.

After going through re-hab, we thought he was out of the woods with alcohol

but then the panic attacks started.

They say panic attacks won’t kill you…..but they were sever and

unmanageable.  He did not want to go back to re-hab and risk losing his job

so he did the only thing he could do to stop them.  Leave his body!

Panic attacks do “kill” – don’t let anyone tell you they don’t.

Get help if you have them.  Find the place of peace in your mind.

It awaits YOU.  It is there.

Re-entering re-hab could have saved his life but he didn’t want to take

time off work or want his employer to know…… and risk losing his job…..

he lost his life instead.  That is what alcohol can do.

It takes away your reasoning power.

It eats your brain and you don’t realize what is happening.

It is slow, a glass of beer, a little glass of wine, then two, maybe three?

Get Help – You are worth it.  People will be devastated with the loss of YOU!

You are LOVED you don’t realize how much.

Don’t let alcohol RUIN your life – Don’t let it RUN your life!

Whose in charge of YOU?  You are…..You are not the addiction!

Alcohol or YOU?  Don’t let it kill you……because it will.

It tries to out smart you……you out smart it instead!

Go to AA – Drop the ego – it is false anyhow – it is not YOU!
