The Steeler fan who had some deep depression issues took his life. Was a friend of mine from way back to myspace days and even made me my first Steeler mask.

I have a heavy heart tonight Steeler Nation, we lost one of our own....

Depression is a hole we fall in that requires the help of others to crawl back out

So sorry for your loss Slash...... may your friend find peace and for those left behind who search for answers I wish to share a piece if I may.
It does not provide the solutions we all seek but it may give some, a glimpse at understanding the pain of poor souls.

The Well

Please don’t tell me to “relax”.
Please don’t say it’s just the weather.
Please don’t ask if I’ve been dieting,
“Stop, and you’ll feel better”.

There is a hole that drags me down,
To a place where there’s no light.
It claws at me,I struggle free.
Sometimes I lose the fight.

I feel so tired, but cannot sleep.
I can barely face each day.
My stomach churns,my heart beats fast.
Why won’t this go away?

My nerves are raw, tears come easy,
I want to run and hide.
But what’s the point?There is no sense.
I can’t run from what’s inside.

I know it isn’t logical for me to feel like this.
I have a home, I have good friends,I’m grateful for them all.
But that only makes it harder to explain,
To understand why I fall.

If I fall too hard, if I fall too fast
I’ll drown in my self-doubt.
I have to stop, dig in my nails
And claw my way back out.

I know I need to take control,
Push back the heavy curtain
That blocks my light, and saps my will,
And makes me so uncertain.

For now I’ll wait and hope and pray,
Take a breath and count to ten.
And trust that I will have the strength
To find myself again.

So sorry to hear. :( It's things like this that put the light on what's truly important, I used to get so mad over a loss it would ruin my entire day. As I've gotten older I still get pissed, but it's just a game. Life is so big, and so much, and it's so sad to hear of the passing of anyone due to mental health struggles.

Thank you very touching. Thanks everyone. I think for me what is sad besides his son being without a father and the parents losing a son is that I feel it was just another person that I failed to help. Depression is so so powerful. I know we can't save everyone. Just would be nice to see one saved.
