I cannot imagine a fate worse than this for a parent. :cry:

Sometimes I even dream about contemplating suicide - I still don't jump...

New Zealand has the third highest suicide rate (per capita) in the world - behind Sweden and Japan. It is mostly our young men under 25, that are just not coping. I think there would be a lot of kiwi's in the world who have been directly or indirectly affected by suicide, and it is an absolute tragedy.

Two of my friend's fathers have committed suicide, and when I was at high school there would have been perhaps 4-5 young kids (either at our school, or brothers/boyfriends of classmates) who, for whatever reasons, just gave up on life and ended it. I think the hardest thing for all these family members and friends, as Bubbs said, was that they were so close to these people and either had no idea, or felt like they had not done enough to help them. For those left behind, the guilt (on top of grief), must be overwhelmingly enourmous.

EmEye, I am so sorry to hear about your brother. :cry: I just don't know what to say, except that.

This guy is stepping over the boundaries again and again and again and again. Why do you let his cr@p continue.

Forget it, you seem to allow this insensitive and outright asshole to spout his hatred, anger and hurt wherever he wishes but ban Eric and cut out our posts?

Here we go: You guys suck!

Good bye

Mods, I agree. I take extreme offense to the post above by Donno. It is completely out of line and very insensitive.

Thanks GC! This madwolfie has found a way to weave insanity into the seams of sanity to help maintain the balance of her own furry little crazy mind. :P

But when I do need someone to listen to my howling... I know who to go to now :) Thanks GC, much appreciated! :love:

It seems that whatever the little arsehole wants to write is acceptable, doesn't matter if it hurts people beyond reason and beyond what we should accept here.

Let's see if anything happens by the end of today. If not, well . . . what's the point, really?!

I'll delete my quote in case one of the affected people are forced to look at it.

I actually thought you were learning to behave yourself! May I suggest you go somewhere and just think about how insensitive and stupid that remark is.
There are many reasons why people attempt commint suicide and would it not be a good idea if you stopped annoying everybody you come in contact with and did some thinking for a change?

FOR GOD'S SAKE, THIS HAS GONE FAR ENOUGH.....

That 'Donno' is an arsehole....there, I've said it, now, I ask you not to ban me, too.

Everyone on here thinks so, and then Quasi goes and wants to leave.
Please Quasi, don't.

Then Eric is banned for something about a million times less offensive.

Now, how many others?

I SAY TO EVERYONE............

PLEASE, PLEASE, PEACE. DON'T GO MAD. But there are some apologies needed.....from someone, or someones ....to other someones.

LOOK, I'LL START.........


SORRY TO ANYONE I'VE OFFENDED, NO, REALLY. NOW, WHAT ABOUT PAYING FORWARD AND THE NEXT ONE DOING IT?

I know, simple minded really, but just trying to defuse the situation...
