• Breaking Up and Breaking Down

    I have locked myself in the bedroom and the man I love is outside, screaming “Go fuck yourself!” over and over and pounding on the door. I am crying so hard I feel like I’m going to puke my guts out.


    This is the sixth or seventh time this has happened in the past year. I’ve lost count. It’s always something I did, or didn’t do, or something I said, or didn’t say, and he blows up like a roadside bomb.

    What can I say about a man who says he loves me but treats me like shit?

    What can I say about why I put up with it?

  • Why My Dad Killed Himself

    Right after Thanksgiving dinner, my father poured a glass of wine for his wife Karen and gave her a kiss. Then he went out, as he often did, to sit on the pier and enjoy the city lights reflecting on the ocean.

    The next morning, after looking all over the house for him, Karen found my father in the garage, hanging by his neck from the rafters.

    He did not leave a note. The family is in shock. They can’t understand why a healthy, fit man who had everything would commit suicide.
