Hey guys, I really appreciate the responses.
Unfortunately this stuff isn't going to end there apparently. My sister got out, but with so much drama involved I don't know when/if I can forgive
her - there is a whole story there, but the crap she has left on my parents is infuriating.
Last night I got a call in the middle of the night again - I'm starting to develop a paranoia after all of these midnight phone calls from home. I
panic when I see "mom" pop up on my ID. My cousin shot himself last night. I was not close to him - in fact while I cared for him I didn't
particularly like him. Him and my little brother were VERY close, and I didn't like some of the stuff he was into when my little bro followed in his
footsteps. I do like his dad, and my mom was very close to him as well. They came and stayed with us most summers, and my mom looked after them for
about 6-8 weeks of the year on various visits. My family was at the beach, with my uncle (his dad) and his sister and nephew. They were supposed to
head home today, and got the call last night. My mom is a wreck, and I'm really worried - first 3 years of hell, then losing her son to suicide, then
my sister losing it, and now her nephew that she was very close too. She's going back to South Carolina with them - my dad is taking my niece and
nephew home so they don't have to go through this again. Apparently this has been an issue for years, but we didn't know about it, and he had been
particularly bad this week. His ex, coc aine addict girlfriend found out she is pregnant, and he didn't know if it was his yet or not. I guess
between that, the constant alcohol and depression, and losing my brother it just sent him over the edge as well.
Is this a chain? Do we just keep losing the next most depressed person as the loss becomes too much? Seriously what the hell? Two of my bro's friends
were in a car accident the week after my bro shot himself - at least one of them died. Someone else in that age group was in a car accident this
weekend and didn't make it. My cousin was in SC, but all of these others live in my hometown - a town of about 6,000.
