51. Then you are not familiar with the latest research and statistics
on suicide. Yes, taking pills may have been a "cry for help" but also she might have wanted to end it there and then. We don't know.

What I do know from having earned a Masters in Psychology is that people who ATTEMPT suicide should not be dismissed as insincere. She now has an increased chance of not only attempting suicide again but ALSO completing the task.

Yes, this is more problematic than if she had taken her life because those who genuinely care about her must bond together to assist her in a path that will alleviate her depression.

I say damn the people who make light of someone attempting to end their life ... for any ONE person or for ANY reason.

They must have no shame or sense of personal integrity. :(
