    I've had a strange past 6 months or so. It had been years and years and years since I've personally known anyone who killed themselves. Then.... in December my uncle shot himself. Then a few weeks later a close female friend of mine's fiance shot himself right in front of her. A few months or so after that another friend hung himself. Then a friend of my wife's who I only knew casually killed himself by OD'ing on pills. Four suicides in less than 4 months. Crazy stuff.

    I've known plenty of the "cry for help" "pay me attention" types over the years. And the strange thing, at least from my experience, is that those are the people that never actually go through with it. But the ones who do are the ones you would never expect. The uncle I mentioned was one of the funniest and most fun people to be around that I knew. Loved that guy. And if 5 years ago you would've asked me to pick the one person in my family who I thought was least likely to kill themselves, he would've been the guy. Hands down. But he went through 2 divorces in the span of a few years, got laid off, started drinking heavily, and it was just a downward spiral he was unable to recover from.

    That is what I've always heard.

    If someone is serious about killing themselves then they are not going to tell anyone.

    I've had a few cry for help types.

    Dated one.

    Came in one day after breaking up and she was drunk sitting on the the ledge of her apartment window three floors up at about 3am.

    Told her to jump. Wouldn't have killed her anyways. Grabbed my stuff and dipped out.



    Another got drunk as **** and climbed in the tub and slit her wrists (barely). Then proceeded to text goodbye messages to everyone.

    Fire Department kicked in her door.


    Was dating that one too.....

    Great story. Made all the better by the fact that he was dressed as Santa.

    Exactly. My dad spoke to my uncle (his brother) literally the night before he killed himself. Told my dad that he was "feeling so much better" and even asked about the family's plans to get together for Christmas because he wanted to come. He had already decided. He was just putting up a front to avoid suspicion.

    LOL I dated one too. And stayed with her for way longer than I should have because of it. I was young and dumb and didn't know any better. I just didn't want this time to be the time she was serious. But eventually you get fed up and have to move on. Haven't seen her in about 10 years but I do know that she's still alive and reigning terror on the life of some poor schmuck.

    Exact same thing.

    Stayed out of pity and honestly caring about them but just not in a relationship kind of way. Didn't want to hurt them and knew they were already "off".

    That is why I walked in, grabbed my **** and said ****ing jump. I'll call 911 when you hit the ground.

    Eventually they drain every ounce of give a damn out of you and you end up resenting the hell out of them.
