Never ever for the family left behind, my Mum took her life nearly 5 months ago. She was the most wonderful fun loving and caring person, we had no knowledge that she had thoughts of suicide daily. I miss her every single second but I am glad she is at peace, I wish she had thought about taking her life a second longer so she could have changed her mind as some one else said earlier suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Thank you 2112 for your post as I think that thoughts of suicide should be talked about more, I know for Mum she felt ashamed for feeling depressed and people in the cong thought she was weak because of it but I feel if she could have talked about it more openly it would have taken away some of her shame.
2112 my thoughts are with you xx
