I imagine most folks have thoughts of suicide at times. I know I did. Not too much lately. Things were pretty bad for awhile there years ago. But... day by day goes by and things CAN get better. One piece of advice I heard was “wait a day”. And if you still thought like it, “wait a week”, etc. I forget where the advice ended (a year!?)

The other saying I like is “Suicide - a permanent solution to a temporary problem”.

I had an accident and came a half-inch from death last year. Dieing was the last thing I wanted to be doing then! Things and attitudes change.

All of that said, if my wife divorced me and caused me so much pain that I would want to kill myself, I would probably set the guillotine up on her front doorstep so she could find me. And make sure the blade was sharp!

I think the divorce was just the final rung of a very broken ladder. He has more general issues, probably like me.

Well, I beg to differ. I despise the term ‘permanent solution to a temporary problem’. Is it really temporary if it lasts 30 years? Been dealing with mental illness my whole life. Came DAMN close to suicide last April. Threw away a bunch of important items. But the Marine in me said Stay in the Fight. So here I still am.

Last time I looked it was wait until the next election cycle. ;-D.

Do you think she'll notice? How sweet. Sort of like a cat leaving a dead mouse in the driveway for its owner me thinks. LOL. Of course you would never . . ..
