.... when people say this, are they really serious? I had my mother say this to me today after I told her I want to die. Is it common for one suicide to lead to another? Just curious because I hardly see any other way out. I feel like I hate myself more than I love my mother, so I haven't been deterred by her words completely. She runs a business, has high blood pressure, 4 kids to take care of and she loves me unconditionally.... I feel sick still thinking about it... but I'm depressed and I hate myself too much for ever having disappointed her.
