    When I was 19, my best friend committed suicide. It screwed me up for years. I missed her so. I've heard derogatory things about people who commit suicide, and the people who say those things never knew anyone who killed themselves. If they knew about the pain on either side, the one who died and the ones left behind, they wouldn't dare to say anything that puffed themselves up. I'll never forget Debbie, and I can finally get on with my life without her.

    I would like to be honest as I can on this subject. My expereince with suicide was drinking and losing a loved one's. Losing the loved one was because of the drinking. My suicidal behaviour started young about 18. I would say if you know anyone that is in said condition show your love and care. Help by getting them help in a loving manner. It's a very fine line, don't over power but be there for them. Kindness and care goes a long way.
