My Pain

He walked in the door with his head hanging low. he had a feeling he had never experienced before. his wife came to greet him but he walked on by leaving her standing as a ghost. the kids were fighting over a game but he didn’t hear. he walked through the bedroom that his wife shared with him past the bed and went through the bathroom door, locking the door behind him. his wife was softly knocking at the bathroom door asking him if he was alright. he wasn’t answering. she continued to knock with no reply. she walked out to the kitchen and called 911. she had never seen her husband this way. when EMS got there, it was too late. He had taken his pants off along with his belt. he had taken his belt and made a noose and hung himself. they found a scribbled note tossed on the floor from his hands. it stated,,i got laid off today hon. i can not provide for my family now. i am no longer a man of the family. you will be better off without me……

  1. The day I found out I was never going back to work was one of the most painful days of my life. Thank God my wife was with me when I got the news from the doctor that I could no longer work. At least I had some disability benifits to fall back on. Still, I can relate to this situation. Thank you so much for sharing this.


  2. This is very sad but I have to say I don’t feel sorry for him. I feel sorry for his wife and kids who he did not have the will power to fight for and take care of.


      • I wouldn’t try to judge anyone in that circumstance. I do believe ending your life is not the answer. I have known the dispair of providing for your family all your life and suddenly finding yourself unemployed. I really thought my life and purpose had completely lost all its value. Things worked out a lot better for me because my wife not only stood by me, but held me up when I was falling, in the emotional sense, that is. I am still in the process of trying to find my value and purpose. I want to be able to help my family when they are in need. But they are always helping me at this point. That is a big adjustment for me. I hope that makes some sense.


      • i know exactly what you are saying and how you are feeling. four years ago my brother and i lost our parents. since that time i have been caring for my brother who is mentally challenged, has heart disease, parkinsons and dementia. i have been weak in god and strong in god. i have been dependant on others and independant. at this time in my life, it is me and my brother. we can’t make it without god in our lives. i get lonely at times, and sometimes i feel left out without a partner in my life anymore. through my writings i have been able to share views, opinions, and personal lives. i am happy to have you following me. always feel free to make comments. i care……….
