In response to RigatoniT's comment:
It is interesting to me how much energy the media is spending on Robin Williams........ simply because we (as a country) have so much more at stake - so many important issues that surpass one individual taking his own life; personally I despise the media as I think most rational persons do.
When I was 18 I drove a 5 inch steak knife into my gut...... more or less because I was having a high-school heart attack over my first long-term girlfriend. I spent 6 weeks in a rehab facility and then caught a viral infection that put me on life-support in intensive care for more than 10 days! The family priest came and prayed for me with the assumption I was dead man (kid).
I pulled through.
Afterwards I spent most of the years being a cocky successful dude.... suicide a distant memory. Getting laid was a non-issue
Not anymore...... If find myself at 44 squeezed by my inability to grapple with living and earning a living in a third world country. In the first 7 months of 2014 I earned $63,000and due to personal battles with a Cambodian woman most of that went to her... literally $45,000. I often find myself so frustrated that I hear myself murmur over and over again "die".
I always treat the BDC as a place where we play like children... which is why I want to call posters 'idiot' or 'simpleton' as I hope that their BDC moniker does not take things so literal.
I do have a family, but again as treating the BDC as a cartoon world I do not talk about it..... God only knows what pike would do with such revelations.
Anyhow I find it typical and disappointing that those who act as if they care are parked outside Williams neighborhood begging any passer by to give them some scoop..... they really do not care about Williams or suicide lest it serve to boost ratings.
Buritto, For one, I'm glad you pulled through and that you're here.
If things are difficult there, perhaps a move back to the states would be better?
Whatever. If things get real down for you, please know that Ill help however I can.
