Grandson and suicidal thoughts: Will this ever pass?
My grandson will be graduating from high school this weekend. He is very intelligent and also very talented. He could go into anything he would want to do for his future. 2 1/2 years ago, out of the blue, he was thinking suicide. We were totally taken away by this. There were no previous signs. After waiting many hours to find a bed to inter him into a hospital, he did the 3 day stay and back home to school soon after. He has had more serious suicidal thoughts , making it difficult to leave him on his own. Several more trips to hospital, counseling, meds and the depression rig a moroll. Since then he has missed a tremendous school days. Realizing he won’t always feel that down so shutting himself in his room until he feels sorta normal again. He is headed for college this fall and doubtful his nasty old nightmare is over. I am so concerned for his future lif. What can we do. Will this ever pass ?? jL
