Sweet Slumber

Photo taken by Joan Currie from San Francisco, California, USA, of Lauren DiMarco.

About this photo: When my husband was first diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis he sank into a deep depression and decided that life was not worth living. I awoke each morning filled with dread that, perhaps in the night, he had executed one of his many plans to terminate his life and I needed to find his body before my young daughters did.

      Thank you for your comment. This is the first time I have talked about my husband’s suicide period. It lasted for several years and robbed my daughters of the carefree childhood that they so richly deserved.
      Warmly! Joan

    Powerful photo reflecting a very sad story. I especially like how you captured the idea of peaceful sleep you craved.
