Yesterday I heard the heartrending story of a father who jumped in front of a moving train while holding his young daughter. He was instantly killed. Miraculously, the child survived and was able to crawl from under the train to good samaritans who took her to safety. The deceased man was said to be a good father, but he suffered from depression.
I cannot judge this man, clearly his thought process was not rational when he jumped. Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed about. In many cases medication can help. Do not keep it to yourself see a professional get help. You might not get a cure but you can get the help you need to live a normal and fulfilling life. Don’t suffer in silence. Get help.
