I have great compassion for anyone who attempts suicide. JamesThomas is right, unless you've been there, you don't know what it's like.
It's an awful place to be. I have also lost two friends to suicide. One was a JW. It was about a year after my attempt. Like me, no one knew that agony he was in. I was blessed in that my mother found me before it was too late. He was not. He was so smart and the kind of guy that your parents always compared you to. I guess it was a lot of pressure.
The other was not a JW and had been diagnosed as HIV+. He had a set back and was put into the hospital. His first night home, he decided that it was time and intentionally over-dosed. I guess I understand why, but I would have liked to say goodbye. He would have been 33 last week.
I miss both of them very much.
