Depression Takes Another Young Life

This young woman that killed herself was so similar to Kaitlyn only she was not a medical student. This is what’s happening to our young, brilliant, athletic, college, grad school, med school, etc young people.

About gatito2

My name is Rhonda. I'm a registered nurse, for the last 20 years, that has not been able to work since the day I learned of my daughter's death by suicide 4-12-13. (She actually died 4-11-13 and her body was not found until the 12th) Me and my husband have been married for 32 years and he's a wonderful man. We grieve in different ways. He works, I write. This is my journey through this horrible land of losing a child..
