My mother and sister were a bit upset with me calling poor scitzoid, paranoid mariuana puffing peety weety a silly bugger just after he'd swallowed a car batteries worth of lithium or whatever. The fact is he was surrounded by doctors and nursing staff and that was his sense of humour. I don't think genuine suiciders appreciate being wrapped in cotton wool and it's the last thing an attention seeker needs.
When our beloved logical was saying he'd do himself in i told the silly bugger to wait till i got there, i'd do it for him .. and look at him now! She's a laugh a minute lol.
I thought Englishman made some excellent points about many that threaten suicide being selfish attention seeking users. Most of the people I've known who were suicidal were also not much good at thinking about anyone but themselves. Such negative people can be a real drain on your energy and drive you to and early grave.
If ya ever need swearing at bro.bear you know who to ask, unc.
This subject, like all things medical, doesn't interest me much but it was good to get it out.
