The Brick - Final Chapter

Parting Thoughts Several years ago as my wife had slipped into a deep depression and she attempted suicide not once, but twice. I started to realize that if I was to 'save' her, I had to first 'save' myself. I hadn't realized how far into my depression I had slipped until my wife's illness forced me...

The Brick - Part Thirty Nine

So Where Do We Go From Here? It is difficult to write a short book on the subjects of isolation, grief, death, and suicide that the average reader might understand. After all, there are all kinds of 'specialists' that take years and years of schooling with continuous updated training to become... Sign in to see full entry.

I Give Tribute To A Friend

While I have completed "The Brick," and there really isn't that much to go, I'm going to pause this another day so I can gather my final thoughts to make sure that this story delivers the proper body blow that I want the reader to feel. That sounds strange. I know it sounds strange, but a college... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Eight

NOTE: This is a lead-in to the ending of the story. I'm sure you've seen this someplace, as it is a well known quote. The Paradoxical Commandments People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered. Love them anyway. If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives. Do good...

The Brick - Part Thirty Seven

One of the frequent symptoms many sufferers of anxiety face is a racing heart rate. There are many reasons for this, and if it happens a lot, you should talk to your physician about it. If it turns out to not be a severe medical issue and a by-product of fear and anxiety, some of this may be of help... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Six

Once you find that invisible control setting, break the connection, get up and walk around a bit and then sit down, calm back down and locate that control mechanism again. Once calmed and in control of your mind and body processes, begin to work to bring your rates down. You won't need to count it;... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Five

NOTE: This is the inclusion of two issues that can cause a lot of distress and even suicide, and was suggested to me by CCT. Thank you sir. V Two Things In Passing I'm going to briefly address two other situations that can lead to depression and even suicide. One is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder,... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Four

I have taken this basic breathing exercise and modified it to make it work better for me. It took me almost six months to get it to work for me every single time, so don't expect it will work for you the first time. As someone famous once said, "If it were easy, everybody would be doing it." Nothing... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Three

Working Toward A Goal While it may not be universally true, most people who struggle with depression have a problem to simply let go of most things about them and allow their mind to find a calm place. It seems easy to say, 'Just relax!' If it were that easy to do, the stress level of millions of... Sign in to see full entry.

The Brick - Part Thirty Two

To Settle Affairs I've covered a lot of material in a relatively short period of time, and I want to make sure to boil it down for you. First, you are not the doctor (unless you hold a degree in medicine!) for anyone and neither am I. As such, our roles are limited to support for the depressed and... Sign in to see full entry.
