    I have been trying to help my nephew for about 3 years now. He just turned 26. A gorgious, young man, brilliant, kind hearted and never met a stranger. After he watched his best friend, Levi, die in the damn where they were fishing he has never been the same. He actually was holding his hand when the currents were trying to take Levi under and finally Leve told chad “LET ME GO and SAVE YOURSELF!!! That day Chad’s will to live was gone at 16 years old. HE had grew up with Levi from an early age. This began the drug use to escape the pain and the memory of that day he so wanted to forget. He had tried to kill himself different ways and thank God never succeeded. He stayed with me a while and and seemed to be doing great…and them would move back home to his alcholic father . His mother had separted from his father due to His father giving Chad any drug he wanted that day!! oooh it make sme angry just to write that… So anyway…time goes by and he seems to be doing better his birthday was May 9 and turned 26. he come up to see him mom and me.. we had such a good time and he looked SOOO good. Soon after that he stabbed his self in the chest close to the heart and still made it. I begged the mental place to keep him for about 90 or more days…. no way they said without a court order. We had no money to get one of those and plus his dad was out of it and his mom was on major medicines and not in our real world most of the time. I hurt so bad for him….he come home and I called him and begged him to come back to my house and we would taclked this together and go to therapy…..well May 25th two years to the day my sister, who was like my mom passed away, he was found in his bed DEAD. his so called dad found him. the autopsy said he had overdoes on xanax and tramadol…which was given to him from the bitch of a grandmas, his father’s mother, and his stupid dad. they found the bottle in his room. I am sick with grief still. No one had there wits to even plan a funeral for this young man. So i picked the caskcet, and make arrangements. ALl they did was bellow out and cry…:WHY oh GOD WHY……………………….I could have punched somone. I am telling this story so if someone else is gong through this they won’t feel alone and also some laws need to be changed to get someone help. I amsorry if I rambled. I you follow the links of my posts you will see I h ave wrote about him many times on here. What a tragedy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!keep my family in your prayers…thank you so much…you can go to clickfuneralhome.com and see his picture and my sister also is in there. they passed away on the same day two years apart……:sad2:

    I try to think of how you must feel. I have known people who have died in similar ways. However, I did not have the same investment in them as you did in your nephew. I cannot imagine for one second how painful this must be for you.
    I am so sorry that you are experiencing such grief, grief that is so bad I am incapable of understanding its intensity.

    This may seem strange…but as I am struggling to give up smoking, maybe I can think of your nephew, maybe I can find some inspiration, maybe in some crazy way if I think about how quitting these cigarettes can help me live longer, and if I can just live one of those days on his behalf, well, I don’t know, all I know is 26 is too young. I am so sorry he lived in such pain too. I am so sorry for your pain. I wish you well!
