Actually, please send them to my Mom and Grandma. He lived with them, and they are the ones who found him in the backyard Monday morning.

How about, "Were More Likely to Commit Violent Acts"?

They knew it back when I studied at that same distinguished institution. It was hammered into our brains that anyone recovering from depression was more likely to commit suicide during the upswing than at any other time. Adolescence is the most dangerous age for depression, given the massive changes and confusion and pressure on the teenage mind.

I'm really sorry to read about your loss. May I ask how old he was? FWIW, prayer offered.

Unto You, O Lord, we return with thanksgiving that we can gather around Randy and his family in their time of great loss. Touch the depths of their grieving hearts with a Comfort beyond human understanding, so deep is their devastation and need. May the death of Randy's brother bring about needed changes in treatment, for You are not willing that any should perish. Cause us to look to You, O Lord, in faith even in times when we have not understanding, for no matter the circumstance, You never leave nor forsake. For this we praise You, in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen ...

"What about St John's Wort (or other "natural" serotonin uptake inhibitors) for depression?"

Tryptophan is a pre-cursor to serotonin. The good thing is that it adds serotonin but doesn't change the feedback part of the process (i.e., the re-Uptake part) so it isn't as likely to change a very complicated process in the brain over time.

From what I have read lots of people have been helped by Tryptophan without the side effects caused by SSRIs. It's not a cure (people have to keep taking it) but apparently it's safer for long-term use. It's naturally ocurring in certain foods anyway.

I've seen stable, happy people turned into sobbing wrecks by Paxil, Zoloft, and the like. Starting and stopping those regimens can be harrowing for the strongest person.

You have my condolences for your and your family's loss.

Maybe a rant to you.
Your post is also a sobering reminder to lurkers/posters about the
struggles of those with depression, as well as their families and friends.
Keep the faith. (easy for me to say)

Randall, I am so sorry. My husband did the same thing on April 20th of this year. It's going to be very hard and there will be questions you will never find the answer to.

Just remember you have friends here that are praying for you and your family.

But these damn doctors must stop with simply prescribing drugs to their patients and TALK TO THEM!

So very sorry for your loss. Our condolences.

I know from my experience after I moved to Kansas, that isolating was the worst thing I could do. My psychologist Sharon really harped on me to at least get outside on the front porch to read the paper every day. I did that... met most of our neighbors and found a purpose in life.

Psychiatrists just do 'medication checks' these days because of insurance restrictions. For 'talk' therapy, you have to see a psychologist.

God Bless,

My niece is in the hospital as we speak. I saw her in July and we spent lots of time together, we laughed until we cried and talked a blue streak. I did notice that she was very vague a few times but when I heard, I was shocked because I thought she was fine.

I was actually the one who diagnosed her the first time in 1999 but I was able to see it in written correspondence and completely missed it face to face. I insisted that she seek help and they hospitalized then too. Depression is just a horrible disease and it isn't always apparent, even to those who love them and live with them.
