Sometimes you never know.

Sometimes you never know.
November 2, 2014. A day I will never forget. I had the day off from work and was hanging around my house, about to take a nap. Then I got a phone call that changed everything. My friend called, telling me he just heard that our friend Adam had committed suicide. I told him I didn't believe him, he had the information wrong, there was no way Adam would do that...steadily one of my worst fears was confirmed, someone I loved was gone.

A little background on Adam. He loved gaming, he loved beer & whiskey, he loved disc golf, and more than anything he loved his friends whether he told us or not. I met Adam nearly a little over 5 years ago. There was a party at his house, and someone convinced me to stop by. I didn't even know his name was Adam until nearly 5 months after meeting him, he went by Bob.

I have never met a more caring individual. He didn't always show it through his comments or demeanor, but you knew he cared. Adam didn't talk to people about his feelings or what was going on inside his head, unless you were one of a select few. Adam saved me from taking my life years prior to his suicide, unfortunately I was never able to tell him that.

There have been some good things that have come from this as difficult as it is to believe. Our entire group of friends is far more dedicated to keeping in touch and to talking to each other about how we're feeling mentally and emotionally. We have also started promoting suicide awareness in our community in his name and in hope we may be able to prevent others from suffering alone.

Know that no one is alone in this fight.
