Thank you for the focus on Suicide. We have a history of Bi-polar behavior in my family. I lost a sister of 41 years to depression two years ago. Her depression and anxiety was so bad she decided that she could not live with it any more. More bad days than good. She was embarrassed by the fact that she was ill and worried the family would commit her to a hospital. she planned her suicide carefully. One thing for my six surviving siblings and I is she left a well written letter explaining her choice. While I miss her, the letter did help explain her situation as well as why she did what she did.
One thing important is that if you know any body with depression or that is bi-polar make sure they know they need to communicate with friends and family. And we need to commuinicate to them.
