Thank you for posting this.  It has the possibility of helping many people  I had the chance to sit in a group of supports that had a friend or family member that committed or attempted suicide.

 

We worked on cognitive behavior. Every time I see my therapist she ask me that question, what I learned what prompted that question.

 

She told me that I was one of the strongest people that she had ever worked with and that I am a typlcal peson that would attempt sucide because of the illness and coming from a background of emotional abuse. So the cognitive therapy has me once again alive.

 

There's the great saying by Phil Donahue, "Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem."  I like to add that nothing is permanent.  All we have to do is live today!

 

I wish the best of luck to everyone.
