My bother (Corry) and I were close as children, he always was good at sharing his affection of love and fun. I would torture him with playing store clerk cashier ( I always had to be cashier) while he kept a smile playing the part as the customer. We stayed close all through high school. He always played the background and with his patient smiles and soft voice with hardly a complaint from his mouth we assumed the year of 2009 nothing had changed. You don't see your loved one in danger if your never looking and only assuming. On the 30th of July My mother and I headed down the last stretch of dirt road, heading home. My mothers panic and screams let me know something bad had happen but nothing could have prepared me what I was hearing through my mothers screams of fear. My brother was depressed and he attempted suicide (gun shot to his head) he is alive by the Grace of God and the plan God has for him, however my brother has medical problems due to his trauma. He has frequent headaches throughout each day, he has a hole in his pallet of his mouth, his vision is double ( he sees two of you) with poor depth perception. Sinus infections are frequent as well and I never get used to the fact that my brother cannot no longer smell. Some people are cruel and say " You did this to yourself" I say let's watch, ask and spend the much needed time with our family members to know they don't feel alone to reach out when they need someone or we can reach out because we will know love and attention is needed. I want my brother to have as much restored as possible, starting with surgery under the tissue of the face, his sinuses and the hole in the pallet of his mouth. My brother is doing so much better know, he is learning his worth more and more each day however these medical conditions are a constant reminder of his pain. Thank you so much for taking time to read and share.
