All I ask is that before people judge and right folks off...at least try to find out what this person was dealing with. I've heard horror stories on this very site that had I been in the situation...i'da most likely killed myself.  It's always easy to say what u would do when speaking from a place of comfort and well being.

As a fellow survivor I can kind of, sort of agree.   IMO though to say "pre-occupied with ones thoughts" is too simple.  It down plays that the person may be dealing with real sh*t.  Not just thoughts.

I've never seen an episode of Jett Jackson, but i remember him from Smallville, may he RIP.

Ummm sometimes the depression that brings a person to suicide is caused by their *&%^$#@Eed up parents/family.

May he RIP.
This is very sad. You could not tell me I was not going to marry him in 6th grade.

RIP, i used to work on a psych ward for 4 years,i saw first hand what depression was like, i still remember a pt who was about 20 yrs old, was discharge from the unit, stated he was okay, I remember writing notes in his chart before he left. He seemed very happy,but underneath the happiness, was sadness, a few days later he took his own life....I remember coming in to work, and my co workers were very sad.

the worst thing about depression is that people dont believe its a real disease. So you're forced to hide it and pretend, lest you're told to "cheer up".

There needs to be more support & facilities for our people that suffer from depression and suicidal tendencies.

As someone who had experience in trying to kill themselves years ago, I can tell you that when you're in that state of thought, it's SO HARD to be convinced otherwise that "things will get better" when you've been handed bad cards to play in life. It's VERY difficult to pull yourself outta that thick mud.....and it takes A LOT of strength & support to do so......but not everyone's strong enough to do it.

And in our community, there's so much lack of support, lack of empathy it's ridiculous. Suicide is not just something "that yt people do". Our thoughts on the issue needs to change.

@thickblkbarbie, yes, isn't there usually a time right before the attempt where they appear to be really happy and upbeat?

a really good friend of mine has tried to multiple times, and she told me that going thru with it was the most selfless act that she could think to do, b/c she was a burden and she didn't want to be one anymore. her solution was to remove herself from the situation.

so yes, we may see it as selfish, but that is from the outside looking in. what do you think their thoughts/motivations about committing the act?
