As the father of four children, I have always had to work hard because I was a single father. I never married the woman who fathered my children. We lived together until my last child was born. When I came home from the hospital, he was gone. This means that I worked and took care of my kids by myself.     I was lucky because my family believed in education. They encouraged me to attend high school and to do well. When my first son, Sean, was born, I dropped out of the eleventh grade. By my parents insisted that I complete high school and I earned my GED before my second sone Jose was born. I went to a community technical/vocational school program. It was a program to learn about plumbing. The program provided classes during the weekend so I could keep my job as a building maintenance worker. It took me 2 years to complete the entry level plumbing training program.   But soon things began to fall apart. It seems that everything started to go wrong at once. First, my oldest son, Sean a killed in a drive-by shooting. A gang member targeted him and a friend because they broke a fight between two high school girls. The police came to notify me at work to tell me my son had been shot. I rushed to the hospital and waited three days with my son Jose and others. He died on the third day in the hospital. I was holding his hand.   I was devastated by Sean’s death. I routine went through each day but don’t remember much. I knew I had to be strong from my kids. But I couldn’t seem to get myself together. I went to see my doctor. I kept having nightmares and couldn’t sleep. My doctor gave me sleeping pills and an anti-depressant. The following month I injured my back in a car accident. I had fallen asleep behind the wheel and crashed into a highway guardrail. EMT transported me to the hospital and doctors kept me overnight for observation. I injured my neck and my back.   Then, during my work at home,  I hurt my back again. Finally, the doctor diagnosed a fracture in my spine. I had surgery and prescribed anti-inflammatory and painkillers. I was frustrated because I love my work/job. I was on long term disability and the medical bills mounted up. I couldn’t afford my medications. Then, tragedy struck again. I lost my son Jose from a street shooting. He was walking his girlfriend from work to home. He bled to death and died on the sidewalk. Now both my sons were dead. I was in physical pain. I didn’t have funds for the funeral expenses but managed to scrape up some funds by begging family, friends and neighbors for money to bury my son. The next month my disability benefits ran out; I appealed but to no avail. Depression set in and I was taking medicine for pain. I started to take illegal street drugs to deal with the mental anguish, physical pain and to deal with my runaway emotion that I can’t control. I started to drink heavily. My job gave me chances and fired me because of absences/lateness/no call-no shows. I don’t know what to do anymore. I have thoughts of suicide; I have anger and rage. I play this over and over in my head. Each night, I take my gun and put it to my head. One night my child saw my gun pressed against my head. He begged me and was crying; that stopped me from pulling the trigger!
