    Some time people try as a means of attention and they don't intend to really die but accidents happen and they actually die . My step brother , Mother and close friend pulled that kind of stuff my mother almost did die and she never threaten to kill herself again or played around with knives .

    Well I'm not saying it's the justice system's fault, and some do finally get (usually lousy) treatment once in jail, but it's something that society can improve on. They are deterred by stigma, the illness itself, poverty, or they don't know/believe they can be helped. A huge number of mentally ill just cannot afford to see a psych or get meds, much less what they might really need - an expensive procedure like ECT or DBS. The new health care law might help some, because they won't be denied insurance, but even then they often need help. Lack of treatment, for whatever reason, contributes to a great many suicides.

    Yeah, I have had to sit on my hands because I knew if I didn't, I'd let loose and get thrown off of the board.

    So while unintentional, thank you everyone for that.

    For me, my source of depression has to do with some experiences in my childhood that threw me off badly enough that I never developed emotionally in some aspects. I had the twin hells of fixing myself and being depressed. Something I recommend to no one. It is far from fun to have to deal with some rather extreme stress.

    Right now, I am sitting at a labor day celebration, watching my kids sword fight, listening to a pretty good cover band, and waiting for fireworks. I am enjoying the hell out of the moment. Two weeks ago, I could be in the same situation and feel like ****. Today, I have a calendar full of things to do, all since thought of recently. I can imagine my future with some hope and joy. That feeling gets stronger daily. I have reconnected with parts of myself long since forgotten and fixed those broken pieces. Life is good.

    Depression comes in many forms and from many sources. Fixing mine required a lot of work, but I have my new basis for motivation and its stronger as I used to rely on others for joy and fun. Now I do it on my own (it still feels weird, I admit).

    Next week is a Linux user group meeting. Then its a monthly LARP meeting. Doing volunteer work at a local park and at church. Some other stuff. Thinking of doing cosplay.

    I would say the biggest lesson for me is that depression hits when you are disconnected from what brings you joy. When that happens there is nothing to counteract stress and it puts you in danger of going down with the ship.

    Everyone, please heed this advice. Find something that is totally yours in life and that brings you joy. I have the fortune of going to a church that always manages to give the perfect sermon for whatever I am facing that week. In this case, its the advice I just gave. Hang in to your passion, I didn't and it has taken me months to find new ones that work for me. Nobody should have to deal with that.

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    No matter how you voted, I heard a saying once, "suicide is a permanent solution, to a temporary problem". I hope people considering it, consider this phrase and recognize the pain it would cause those close to you...even if you don't believe they are close to you.

    Well, if you and your Linux group need some goals to focus on and work towards. Help adapt Debian, or other if your choice, to work on with micro-Kernel and then adapt the Hal AI and it's self learning ability into the Linux OS making a self learning AI OS from it. Always good to have goals.

    I commit suicide at least three, maybe four times a week.

    I know this might sound crazy to some but the closest I've ever felt to suicidal thoughts was one I had a parttime job and while sitting among co-workers I felt a strong thoughts of suicide out of nowhere and for no apparent reason. Later that day I shared this with one friend who informed me that there was another co-worker who was actually contemplating taking their lives. Maybe a sign for God to pray for them?

    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
