'I’m coming home, Dad,' Nutritionist 27, commits suicide after posting farewell note online
Tara Cordell, a talented 27-year-old nutritionist who lived in New York, took her own life after sharing a heartbreaking suicide note on her website.
As her online profile reads, Cordell earned her Bachelor’s degree in dietetics at the San Francisco State University and her Master’s degree in clinical nutrition from New York University.
In the blog’s entry, titled “I Hate The Word ‘Bye’, But See You Later Maybe?” she revealed that the suicidal thoughts have been in her mind for over a decade (when she was a teen).
I hear you girl. She said so much from her heart in her last words. Her list of loves sound like all good reasons to stay but demons of darkness and depression made her concede. God bless her family. I hope she is at peace now #taracondell https://t.co/N1IOw7nZgF— Amy L Cantrell (@amysanTX) February 1, 2019
EXPLAINING HER MOTIVE
After that, Cordell explained her motivation, admitting that she learned that hope was “nothing more than delayed disappointment” and that she was tired of feeling tired. Even though several people considered that Cordell had a great career and a bright future ahead, the lady labeled those aspects of life as “trivial.”

Cordell set clear that she didn’t feel anything during what was supposed to be the happiest and darkest times in her life. She added that no conversation or situation led her to commit suicide.
LISTING THE THINGS SHE WOULD MISS
Later, the lady listed some of the things that she would miss the most, including,
“Real true authentic street tacos. Cal-Italian cuisine. Hunan Bistro's fried rice. The pork belly and grape mini from State Bird Provisions circa 2013. Popeye's of course.”
Absolutely heartbreaking.— Fabio Alberto (@CavernFabio) February 1, 2019
Proving that she had been thinking about the letter for a while, Cordell even requested no funeral, tributes, or GoFundMe campaigns. All she asked for was people to have a delicious meal in her honor and “let me go, no exceptions.”
ASKING NOT TO BE REMEMBERED FOR HER FINAL ACT
She also requested people to remember her as a “whole human you share memories with” and not only for her last act.
Really makes me sick to my stomach. Her suicide note is lucid and depressing to read. I'm sorry she thought suicide was the only option. I really wish she just let her friends know.— Cory de Garmeaux 🌕 (@CGarmeaux) February 1, 2019
Reaching the end of the letter, she addressed her father, who is also dead, telling him that she was on her way and asking him to make some room for her on “that cloud” and turn the “Motown up.” Finally, she wrote, “I’m really sorry mama.”
Read the whole article. Devastating. Best psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists can not get inside the heads of people who feel this is their only solution. Victims don't see what we see. A beautiful, alive, joyful woman. No answers. Just grief. #Suicide— mountain girl (@hayes1942) February 1, 2019
After some of her colleagues requested a welfare check because Cordell didn’t show up for work, police found the lady dead from suicide by hanging inside her Manhattan apartment. In it, agents found another suicide note, which content has not been revealed.
Seven Bridges' mother said her son was targeted by bullies for months because of a condition that requires him to wear a colostomy bag. https://t.co/oPFKxpbzIa— WTHR.com (@WTHRcom) January 23, 2019
DIGGING INTO SEVEN BRIDGES’ CASE
On a similar note, a 10-year-old boy named Seven Bridges committed suicide after repeated bullying over colostomy bag. After trying his best to endure the mistreatment, the boy hanged himself in the family’s home.
Bridges underwent 26 surgeries after he was born with a medical defect. He was required to wear a colostomy bag which apparently would smell. This became the reason why kids would pick on the fifth grader.
