He became very depressed and kept talking about suicide.  He had just moved here from getting his Master’s, just moved back home.  His girlfriend of eight years, they had parted ways, not amicably.  And, he went into a very deep depression.  One night, I was in our family room, and I stood up to see what he was doing, and there were three police cars and an ambulance in our yard. He had taken my cell phone, and my husband’s cell phone, and the house phone outside with him, and he was on his cell phone with a friend from Massachusetts, and said he was going to commit suicide.  She tried to call our house, she tried to call the cells, and then she called the police department where we lived, and they came and got him.  Then he was institutionalized in a mental hospital for a week, and that have him a perspective on life.  When he came out, he had an entirely different perspective on life, and that he didn’t have it half as bad as some other people.  So, we dealt with the mental health issues, on top of the physical issues.
