    Bm, can’t help them all. You have to separate what you do. I can only imagine how that must be for you. Just do what you do, the rest is up to God.

    I’m sure you’re looking at things with a different perspective, than those of us on the outside. I have a friend who tried suicide, and was very angry when her roommate found her in time, and she is trying to turn things around.

    Well, Night Shifters, I’m off to bed. The homework battle with the kid really wore me out. I have a real estate team meeting early in the morning. Have a good night, friends.

    Yeah some refuse it. That is called pride. I do that from time to time no matter what it is.

    I have been in a suicidal person’s shoes. I was refused help from one hospital here about it. You know how helpless that makes someone. I only didn’t go forth, the string that kept my sanity was to stay alive for my mom because I didn’t want her to go through losing me. Now I am not in the state of mind of not wanting to live. I have want’s now, places to be, a kitty who needs me.

    My friend is an intellectual genius, but an emotional wreck, and we have argued the suicide topic ad nauseum. She can be very draining, but I like in spite of her problems. She really makes me think. But I have to distance myself from her, too.

    Catwoman,

    Let us know how that turns out.

    Sleep deeply and peacefully.

    Purrs and hugs.

    Some people are that intense that you have to distance yourself from them. I know what you mean.

    When I was much younger I was hell bent on dying(for reasons I can’t state right now). I fought and fought everyone(not physically) just thought I knew it all and a very compassionate and persistent therapist finally got my attention and for that I’m very grateful. It’s been a hellacious amount of work to get out of that hole but I am very glad that I was not successful at suicide. I am happy to be alive and every sunset,sunrise,or other beautiful sight I see I am thankful.

    You, too, Dorie,

    Pleasant dreams, and good luck with the transition.

    Hugs and purrs,

    Thank God for that, Marsha,

    When I was first married, I tried to, also. I turned the gas on, and as I sat there thinking about it, I realized I didn’t want to blow anything up, so I went and turned if off. LOL It wasn’t a very successful event. But I was truly miserable with my first husband from the get-go. It just took 14 years to figure it out.

    Some of us are too loyal for our own good.

    And slow learners!

    It only took 8 yrs for the next one. LOL

    I have this friend, not on the suicide topic, but I don’t get her. She meets these guys that make her feel like hell and so miserable. Then she is so overjoyed with them a day or two later. If I wrote all her events I could write a soap opera based on her life. She does this every few months and it’s like man I don’t understand.

    She’ll mention a name and i’m like oh don’t remember him when she says she has mentioned it before. I’m like you throw so many names how in the world am I supposed to keep up with it all.

    Sorry didn’t mean to get so serious,I don’t usually share that much but it’s OK if it helps someone.

    SDF.some people are almost predestined to choose abusive relationships mostly because that’s how they grew up. I don’t understand it much either.

    What I don’t understand is the concept of don’t they want something better for themselves enough to not fall into traps of some of these guys.

    I know it’s not only guys, i’ve seen women who are not great at treating their partners either but I always show them the door on my life.
