The utter randomness of the web.. "Ask Yahoo".. "Can someone give me a reason to live?"


You have to scroll down to the bottom, and there it is.. What a cruel & sad way for someone to reach out..

I was googling a term heard on Masterpiece Mystery, and at the very end, there was the question..

I thought it was an odd thing to ask Yahoo, so I clicked it..

*** I did "click abuse" in hopes someone can contact this poor young woman, and help her.. I am hoping it's a hoax..but fearing it might not be..

Can someone give me a reason to live...?

Can someone give me a reason to live...?
My baby is dying he is five months old. My ex shook him and gave him terminal brain injury. I want to take something and die please if there are any ideas for easy suicide. Im 20 my life is already over my son is everything.

Oh dear God, I know the anger, rage , and hurt, you must be going through. Your ex, must of had a lot of anger in him, which no doubt, provokes anger in you, that he took his anger out on that baby. HOW COULD HE!!!!!!! I assure you, he will pay for what he did. Stay in touch with your anger and pain, BUT AT THE SAMT TIME, be willing to let it go. You are now GOING THROUGH ONE of the BIGGEST Life CHANGES in YOUR LIFE, no DOUBT! You honestly need to go through it, suicide is not the answer. Accept all your feelings, but be willing to let them pass. No need to remain with them. I am so sorry for you. This might be an oppurtunity, to turn to something Higher, because this is WAY to MUCH for you to handle, all by yourself. This is also the time, your mind is going to try to make YOU feel guilty, do not block those thoughts, but just be aware of them, and let them come and go.

May God Bless you and help you through this.

Hi delphia,
I know your ex is wrong, to have done what he did, but we need to forgive anyway. So many parents, have so much stress in their lives, that they just can not handle what is going on, and they shake their baby, not realizing what they are doing. They go tempoaraily insane, and then when its all over, they say, "Oh My God, what did I do". Unfortunately, things like this, happen all the time.
But here are some question, I would ask, about your baby?
What signs are there, that show that your baby has permanent brain damage?
Did the doctors say it is permanent?
Money should not be the issue here, they will still treat your baby, and think of cost later.
Some people die owing money to the doctors, but still treat the baby, regardless, once you take him in. I am surprized, that he is not being treated, right this very moment, regardless of money. Perhaps, you can take him, to another Hospital.

I am sorry for what you are going through. Just pray, so that you know, the next step, that needs to be taken.
Good luck

1. God hasn't given up on you.
2. Sure this is definitely a hard time for you, and I won't lie, it won't be your last. But in life, you'll also have some really great times and memories that make everything worth it.
3. Your son has the possibility to survive. Pray about it.

just please don't give up. your life will take a turn for the better - just wait it out until that turn comes around.

That is a very tough thing to go through. You should go to a therapist and he or she wil definately be able to help you. I had to go and it heped me with my suicidal thoughts. It is a great tragedy togo through loss of a loved one, but you gotta get up and move on. Its like having a misscarriage. Youloose one but you can have another. You are worth living here and have a purpose. You can get a great job and start a family and meet a great guy. Life is full of obstacles, but that is what makes it interesting

1. that's the problem with the internet now isn't it?

if it is real she was crying out to yahoo answer people. go figure. but if it is so, I suspect she will get what she is looking for there? don't know. You hit the alert thing and that is all you can do. Otherwise don't feel bad because you can't do anything else, unless you want to give her some advice. It would be a very easy way to manipulate kind hearted people, so...posting something fake like that.

2. I have been told, by kids in the know, that "Yahoo Answers" is heavily laced with trolls who pull

chains for sport. They'll sometimes use situations that are "ripped from the headlines" or based on films because they're short of imagination.

It might be true, but it might be someone having a laugh by using a tragedy to get people to rise to the bait and answer the question.

I think a good grain of salt is recommended before approaching that place.

4. I know how that can happen!

You're looking for a serious answer to a question, and you're led there, to a load of Beavis and Butthead-style answers!

The web is a weird place, indeed--at least some odd corners of it!
