  • One of my daughters' best friends hung himself. There was no note. He was also one of my day care children. He was only 15. I truely blame anti-depressants for many of our suicides. They should be outlawed. It is sad, suicide is a permanent solution for a temporary problem. Life can be so hard at times, we need to learn healthy coping skills and teach our children the same. All too often people don't take time to truely be there for each other or the person suffering isolates and it is too late. Suicide is selfish. The ones who are left behind suffer. We just had a family friends' daughter take her life. She was approx 50, She left behind a 21 and 11 year old daughter. I can't understand......

  • My mom tried to 5 years ago - she apparently left a note and all of the needed information any one would need, she tried to overdose on her medication which now apparently has a blocker affect and most of the times will only make you vomit so she got scared of maybe the finalization part of it or something and called her friend.. I got the call from my Step dad after she was in the hospital.. I am so sorry about your friend.. *hugs* Mental illness is a terrible disease..

  • I'm sorry you had to go thru that. It must be very difficult. I am fortunate that no one I have ever known has commited suicide. I will say a prayer.

  • My brother committed suicide on Nov. 19, 1996. He did not leave a note. He just took a shotgun and killed himself and I'm the one who found him..this was his 3rd attempt.
