Help

My partner, boyfriend, soulmate....my baby committed suicide august 22 2018 and I can no longer live with the pain...I want a quick and easy way out now. My best friend would be a bullet through the head. I cannot endure the pain any longer. My life has become a disease. I hate it. I hate that Robbie is dead. I hate waking up. I hate this fucking world and I just want to die

Hello Douglas,
Sorry to hear about this. Grief and bereavement can indeed be deeply painful, but one can, and it is worthwhile to do so, work though it and recover usefully. Would your great friend Robbie really want you to commemorate his life by ending yours ?  There are similarities and also significant differences between grief and depression, but both deserve proper assessment and treatment.  Counseling, such as with the CBT method, is specially important in grief, rather than medications.
See a clinical psychologist offering this specific method, and work with it, so that your continuing life can become lasting memorial Robbie deserves,  just as you do.
