    My ex- girlfriend's mom hang herself in a basement. That was terrible. But I remember her suffering every day. She was drinking a lot, too. She used to be a lovely person, very cheerful.....
    My brother-in-law's brother killed heimself after his girlfriend broke up with him. Why can't people cope?
    I can't stand the pain. I can't watch people suffer. I suffer with them. I'm like a sponge absorbing all the pain in the world. I'm close to a breaking point. I don't how much longer I will hold on.
  2. Yes, I do.

    yes. :cry: I didn't know him well, but well enough to know he possessed intelligence, sensitivity and kindness in abundance. I was and still am sad when I think about him. Very sad.

    Yes, unfortunately I have known more than a couple people who ended their own lives... And a few others who have tried and failed.

    Goliath, just remember that it is not your duty, or responsibility, to bear the burden of their decision. The pain hurts and cuts tremendously deep, but try not to get caught up in the "why" part of it.

    I wouldn't say I really knew them that well, but an acquaintance of mine from college hung himself in a paddock on his farm.

    Yes. My best friend and confidant, we supported each other during a very low point in both of our lives. I got past it, she didn't. I guess she did a better job of supporting me than I did her. The emotional scar is a permanent reminder to me as to why I am pro-life, I would never wish that pain on anyone else.

    Yep, a very close friend. It was a very brutal death. My fault, still think about him daily. Others I know have tried.

    A friend of the family hung himself in a barn on his farm. I think I was the last person to talk to him. He'd just graduated from university, was always joking about, full of had a devastating affect on me.

    I look back now though and wish I had his courage.
