    It is so tragic when people decide the only way forward is to end their own lives. I knew someone who died in Friday woods at their own hand. Gallon of petrol in their car. I had to inform the two children, eight and five, the person's parents and endless friends. It's such a selfish act.
    Not selfish, but very, very tragic. The sad fact is, depression it a killer.

    I often wake in the mornings and think, whats the point with all this trouble in the world today"
