  1. For those reading & posting that have never been just have no idea what that kind of despair feels like. It is the ultimate solution to everything that is wrong in your life. Making that choice is a huge relief of all your burdens. You really see no other way out that solves everything like death does.

    Well said, 64.

    My thoughts/feelings exactly.

    For me, it was the "get out of jail free" card for my parents from an unruly, defiant teenager. They wouldn't have to tolerate my bipolar mood swings, drug abuse, and illegal activity anymore. They would be free and clear to live happy lives without me. And I wouldn't be hurting anymore. No life= no pain. It's not a path I like to remember.

    Sandra, many prayers are with you as you struggle with this. I am glad that if something has to come of this tragedy it can be that you see how devastating to your family (and friends) it truly would be.


  2. By the way, I am on antidepressants (for the past 3 or 4 months) and it has helped a lot.

    You and millions of others wise enough to recognize the need. So glad you can share this here. Thinking of you.
