    Have you ever contemplated suicide??
    Have you ever tried and someone rescued you??..or maybe you decided against it at the very last moment??
    Do you know anyone who has committed suicide??

    I'll be the first to admit.. I have.

    About two years ago, I went through a stage of great depression, where I comtemplated ending it nearly every day. But everytime I would start having thoughts of my future.. and life after the depression. Boy, am I glad I didn't end it. 9 months ago I met the love of my life.. I would've missed all of this, had I listened to the silly, selfish voices in my head telling me that no one cared.

    Depression is a bitch.. and after going through it, I'll never make light of it again. I'm just glad I made it through that difficult time in my life.. :thup:.

    To anyone that is going through that point right now.. Just hold on.. It's cliche, but things really do get better!

    I will likely commit suicide in the coming months if I do not die first.

    Yes, I have years ago because of extreme grief and sorrow. I had too many responsibilities to think about it for very long and I've got a big family and support group. I've since discovered that what I went through is all to common.

    I don't know anyone personally who committed suicide, but I do know of a few through friends and message boards. It's devastating for all involved, but I understand why someone might feel they need to do it. It's critically important that if you know someone who has recently gone through severe emotional trauma to keep an eye on them and be there as much as possible.

    MY B.I.L used his house as an ATM machine in 2004. New kitchen, barn, 2 new SUV's, a vacation, big screen, new bathrooms,wood flooring.......the whole movie.
    I gently and calmly explained to him it was all a very big mistake.
    "You're all going down you fucking idiot !"
    He told me I was a full of shit, paranoid conspiracy freakoid and that his GM plant was rocking and he could get more overtime than he wanted.
    I left the sinking ship.

    A few months later he got notice that the plant was closing permanently.
    His wife found him hanging in the barn a few daze later.
    Previous to the U.A.W. he was a military meathead. It's a wonder he didn't use a flag to hang himself with.
    He used the winch cable off of his new Visa bought bass boat instead.

    My ex wife's boyfriend hung himself almost 2 years ago. At first I felt bad for him then I realized: "He's probably better off now". :lol:

    Interesting article I was just reading an hour ago, about suicide kits I had never heard of even though I live in OR:***

    The state House in Oregon is expected to vote early next week on whether to impose a crackdown on companies that sell so-called "suicide kits," which contain hoods or other items intended to help a person end his or her life.

    The bill was proposed in response to the death of a 29-year-old Eugene man, Nick Klonoski, who killed himself using a suicide kit he ordered through the mail from a California company.

    The state Senate unanimously approved the bill Monday.

    Kits like the one Klonoski used cost $60 and contain a plastic bag that fits over the head, along with plastic tubing that can be attached to a tank of helium gas. They can be purchased by anyone at any time, without the consultation of a doctor.

    This Death with Dignity Act is the only one I have been familiar with and am in favor of:

    Oregon is one of just a few states that allow doctors to help terminally ill patients end their lives early in certain circumstances. But lawmakers said companies and individuals who provide suicide kits should be prosecuted because they lack safeguards and take advantage of the vulnerable.
