There is no serious help for the people of this country out there. But if you live in other certain countries or you come here from other countries, the world is your oyster, with all the aid money and benefits.

Cuts, cuts and even more cuts. Its making the citizens of this country (Not the so called leaders, they are OK Jack) live as if they are in another third world. They cant put food on the table, pay the rent or put the heating on. And that's only the people that are working, not to mention the pensioners.

Words alone do not help, like,"It will be alright, It will sort itself out in the end".

No it wont !

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

Assimilation - I'm sorry, you are right if course, it's not an act based on selfishness. But my God the impact on those close is cataclysmic and permanent. To the point all one's anger is aimed at them for what their escape act if raking the easy way out has done to the surviving family and friends. Over a quarter of a century later, the now thirty one and thirty six year old children have done well in life, but still stumble at every anniversary and those personal milestones when the parent concerned is absent.

Not selfish? Tell that to the train drivers when someone has had enough, do you think they give any thought before throwing themselves under the wheels of an express or what devastation they leave behind them overall?

Really sorry about that seikothrill- a shameful error, glad you picked me up on such an important detail. I know for a fact they are 31 and 36 now. It's just it was a long time ago and all I remember was that the little boy was in infant school and the girl was older. Also remember them screaming for ever when I told them.

There are always casualties, but try telling that someone with deep depression. When the time comes, that is the last thing on their mind. They are long past listening to anybody,family, friend or the professionals. They also think it is pointless talking to anyone so they end up keeping it bottled up, which I might add, makes thing worse.

Selfish you may believe, but not to them. To them there is only one way out.

A one way ticket.

The final solution.

The end.

Very, very sad, but true.

Assimilation, I know you are right about depression but that doesn't make it any easier to deal with the very worst end point. Thing is, we can deal with busted legs, heart attacks etc etc but there is something terribly frustrating for us, friends/relatives left behind, about the fact we couldn't intervene to help avoid the tragedy - it's a guilt that will never abate - could there have been a different result if I had....
