    Re: brutal suicide in near my home: woman jumps out of SUV on I-75 in Cincinnati area

    This might not be much a related story, but my brother discovered a dead body when he was young boy. It was a homeless man and it was around Christmas time, because they said he froze to death. My brother didn't have any issues with that despite being a kid. He has had more problems since he volunteered to work with the fire dept, and has seen deaths more recently in life. I think it's kind of strange how he says he remembers the people he sees now, but he doesn't really think of the homeless man... In any case, I am glad that I have not experienced the things he has, but I admire him for doing it.

I was eventually boiling over with anger and stress. I so just wanted to scream out, "get out of my ****ing way and move your ****ing cart." It was so annoying and stressful. What should have been 15 minutes of shopping was 45 minutes of walking around, bumping into strangers, and waiting in line. I hate the holidays because of stuff like that.
    And that's another aspect of perfectionism and expectations. People SHOULD be nice around the holidays... but they're not. Things SHOULD be easy... but they're not. We SHOULD be able to get all of the presents that we need. These "SHOULDS" are what do us in. "Should" is another one of those "bad" words that I try to avoid and always confront in my practice. "Should" is not reality, but people often act like it is... and when our reality doesn't live up to our "should" reality, we often get depressed and/or feel like we failed or aren't good enough in some way.

    I have one issue with the study. It only equates suicides/attempts and psychiatric admissions as a correlate to increased depression. I can tell you that during the last 3 weeks I have not admitted anyone to a psychiatric facility due to sucidality (I did admit one person because of alcoholism), nor have I had any client who has had a suicide attempt, completed or not. I HAVE noticed a decided increase in the level of depression of my clients. This is based on observation, self-reporting, and assessment. Increased depression does not always manifest itself in suicidality.

Four days before he died he wrote a note saying "Give me your Beretta". ( the gun I carried at the time) I wouldn't but I can understand how some people would want to end a no win situation under somewhat their own terms.

    I wouldn't have seen a suicide by my father at that time as selfish

    On the other hand, my mother contracted pneumonia a year later and refused treatment despite the fact that even with COPD and a poorly healed shoulder fracture 6 years before she died, she still had pretty good quality of life. I really was bitter when she died because she took from my son his only remaining grandmother and unlike her other grandkids-two of whom lived thousand of miles away and another two who really didn't like going to her home (she was a smoker and it really bothered them) He really enjoyed her company and spent hours each week with her and he had a hard time dealing with that especially after he saw his grandfather fight hard to stay alive until (as I noted) four days before he died and after the doctors told him that they could not stop the infection

    your right of course, I guess sometime sits very easy to judge the dead.

    I used to date a girl in college who told me her dad tried that when she was driving, she pulled over and talked to him for a bit until he snapped out of it. Sounds like this person just made up her mind and did it. Really sad story and probably could have been avoided if she had just talked to somebody.

    My family doesn't celebrate Christmas every year, but it's still hard to avoid the stress. The time of year can be frustrating despite not even celebrating it, and that can really irritate me at times and I know I have anger issues which is why I am on dp... lol. I have never actually went off on anybody in public though... but like you said, nobody is friendly or pleasant during the holidays when they are rushing around the stores and thinking of themselves and their families. I guess it would be different if everybody was smiling and being exceptionally polite to one another. I read about a town somewhere, and the mayor made it a point to celebrate being friendly and and hugging people. They said people in the town were less stressful and attitudes improved as a result... it makes sense to me.

    There's a lot to that, people create their own stress trying to fight the holiday traffic to save every last penny and forget civility which leads to stress. Nobody wants to be treated like crap and especially during a time that is supposed to be happy. I think if people would remember that we should be especially kind this time of year things would be better.

    I know what you're saying. It seems like a split second decision to me too, and I wonder if she was under the influence of something. Depressed and suicidal are one thing, but to kill yourself because you see a situation as a way to suddenly end your life seems like a random, split second reaction with little thinking or planning behind it. I could be entirely wrong, but that's how it appears to me. I think that some severely depressed people spend a lot of time planning out their death... writing a will, saying good bye, etc. and others make a decision in the heat of the moment. Her kids were with her. It just seems sudden and unplanned... and I think that's really really sad. It makes me wonder if something really bad happened to her that day or a few minutes before.

    This is why I boycott Christmas every year, never purchase gifts for anyone and request that no on purchase gifts for me. If someone wants to "gift" me, donate money to charity or choose to spend the day doing something with me. Those are the "gifts" I give other people.

    I don't think of it as selfish at all. Nor are they even thinking about how it affects others. People who go to this extreme are in pain..physically or mentally. For them, it's a release.
