Did we fail you?
There were hints along the way, that something was not right, and a couple of blog posts that were cries for help. We urged him to get help, help that is difficult or impossible to give long distance. He did talk to his doctor, I am not sure he told his doctor enough of the story, let alone all of the story. My fear is that we didn't push him hard enough to get more help, that we failed him.
I am a strong believer in options and in the ability to heal or change. Jay needed help, help he didn't get, and in the end felt boxed in with the options of a life he didn't think he could live with, or death. Why didn't we convince him to seek help and explore other options? Did we fail him?
