    No. I don't recall making any judgements about it. I provided my own experience, and people can take that as given, or however they wish to construe my words.

    I assumed you were NOT saying that. Just making sure.

    This is a highly emotional subject and I hate how over-simplistic many people try to make it.

    It's one of the huge downfalls of American society. We view mental health with such a brush-off attitude it's frightening.

    Sad.
    You're clearly trained in the victim mentality, based on your assumption that those committing suicide are suffering from a severe mental health condition. Suicide is a cowardly act which is disrespectful to God, showing one is not grateful for being put as a soul on this earth. Your analogy of cancer fails because nobody seeks to end their life by trying to get cancer.

    Strong patellar reflex this morning, eh?

    As for other people brushing it off, I can fully understand that, as it's not a subject that many people understand unless they have been personally involved on one side or the other.

    Then why tell people to PM you.

    Completely inappropriate and dangerous.

    They need to call a suicide hotline or 911.

    Your offer to involve yourself can get someone killed.

    I do not think it is serious. Thought we could chat things not appropriate in public. Just talking about certain things can be relieving and I can be a good listener.

    No more than that though. I sense something serious boiling and I withdraw. Plus how am I suppose to know who is who and where they live so as to make an international call to authorities there and stop someone take their own lives?

    do you know anyone who tries to get cancer in this life ?

    but many of cancer patients may try to end their lives because they suffer from the side effects of the treatment they get for cancer ,

    there are lots of actions which may be seen as a disrespect for god but many believers usually forget this fact



    we cant view this life from god's point of view because we are not god

    are we ?

    many believers may support every kind of war but never realize the war is a murder unless you are under a danger

    In most cases they are.

    Yey, how would you feel in constant pain, physical or emotional? Migraine, kidney failure, cancer pain... that make you a living corpse... or desperation, guilt, panic attacks, etc? How would you feel if the only exit is "out of this life"?

    I am a victim. Of sorts.

    My father took his life when I was 17 years old.

    I've also had a close high school friend take her life about 20 years after she was date raped in college.

    I've also attended a funeral for one of my daughter's close friends who took her life before she even graduated from high school.

    The rest of your non-sense is just ignorant rubbish.

    You show yourself to be highly uneducated and totally blind to what is the truth behind suicide.
    You are also apparently unwilling to educate yourself on the subject.
    Which then makes you somewhat pathetic.

    Such a pity that you've been surrounded by so many weak-minded individuals.
