REBLOG: It’s Been One Year Today Since Kaitlyn Left This Earth


Friday 11 April, 2014 by Uncle Spike

Yes it’s Friday, and yes I’ll be posting for Flower Friday, probably something ‘happy’ for the end of the week, and yes I’ll be entering the Weekly Photo Challenge tonight….

But today is not just about these trivial events; for some, today will be pain beyond belief. I hope we can all spare a moment to think of our friend and fellow Spikey, Rhonda, on this heartbreaking day. May we all send her the strength to get through it… This is Rhonda’s post for today, please take a moment of your time:

It’s Been One Year Today Since Kaitlyn Left This Earth

    For some reason, your post drew me in further and I read through her entire blog, looking for anything, any thing that might have given an indication that she was going to kill herself (the mom.) I don’t think I would have suspected anything, but, in hindsight, of course I see more darkness in her writing as she nears her last days and her last post is haunting. Anyway, this is such a terrible disease and very frightening. So sad.

      It was a helter-skelter, with ups and downs. It was always a long haul hope of recovery, but with the job restarting and the one-year passed relatively ok, it did still shock me. She had discussed a second blog in mid-Aug and I had even written and sent her an article as she requested 😦


      • Swoosieque says:

        Yes, that is what is so confusing, it seemed that she was moving forward. I will never understand suicide but empathize with what she endured and am so saddened for her husband and daughter, Stephanie. I hope they don’t suffer from depression. 😦

    Thanks for sharing this. Unbelievably sad. My daughter also went to medical school, so I really felt for Rhonda. Stories like this really make you put things into perspective.
