Example text

The detectives invited us to sit in their office upstairs. We waited there for several hours, until they officially ruled Harry’s death a suicide and closed the case. The medical examiner could now release his body to the funeral home. I could pick up Harry’s personal belongings—his wallet, his wedding ring, his watch—at police headquarters. I could rip the yellow police tape off the door to Harry’s office. Clorox was recommended for removing the blood from the floors and walls. As their ringing beepers called the detectives away to cases that had not yet been resolved, we exchanged final handshakes.

Why? Why? buzzed inside my brain like a swarm of bees, threatening to destroy whatever sanity I had left. Since Harry’s suicide, I felt increasingly isolated from my friends and family. They had no idea what I was going through, all their well-intentioned advice and words of comfort seeming ignorant at best and tinged with cruelty at worst. Yet, here I was with others who had supposedly experienced the nightmare of suicide, and I still felt alone and unconnected. Trapped and claustrophobic, I started to leave without even removing my coat.

After one session, Harry dismissed the first psychiatrist he saw—a widely respected expert on depression—as a pompous jerk.
