    would it be easeir to handle the death of a loved one if you thought it was an accident as opposed to suicide? for me both carry the same weight (I have a lot fo difficulty with loss, period. doesn;t matter how it happens). others I think see it differently... why is that?

    I think an accidental death is much easier to handle than knowing someone committed suicide. Suicide carries a lot of guilt with it and definitely affects people differently. That's the reason I have not committed suicide yet".........I haven't found a fool proof way of making it look accidental.

    Idk, maybe because suicide is "planned" and an accident is not?

    I think the guilt is more when others think that they could of prevented it somehow. Silly humans, shit happens either way.
