That's awful. Suicide is such a tragedy on so many levels. I can't imagine the dark depths your mind must sink to in order to go through with such a thing. Not to mention what it does to your friends and family. Just terrible.

I've always contended that suicide is a selfish act, but I guess that's easy for someone to say who has never been mentally driven to the brink like that.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Novacek family.

That's terrible. I feel for the family. I wonder if she had tried to get any counceling?

Totally correct! It is the easy way out and everyone else is left with your mess to clean up.

My uncle committed suicide and I saw his four daughters and wife just crumble. He destroyed 6 lives with that one selfish act.

Interesting film to watch about suicide.

As often as it is. Suicide is the easy way out for what people perceive to be problems they cant fix. What they do is devastate and destroy those that just wanted to love them. The only way I can possibly ever understand it is if it actually is resultant from mental illness. But to just 'escape' problems creates horrific problem for those that are left.

When I watch Intervention, if some of those folks on their off themselves it may be for the better of the family. There are worst ways to destroy your family then suicide.

Suicide is the ultimate manifestation of a "disease" known as depression. If you have never had to deal with a family member with depression, or dealt with it yourself, you have no idea what a grip that disease can have on a human mind. It is a mental illness on par with schizophrenia.

For the folks that do carry through with suicide, generally their illness makes them truly believe that ending their life will benefit others. They do not see that it will harm others, rather they see their continuing to live as harming others. Warped as it is, that is their perception.

It is easy to get angry with those with depression and to call their act self serving, since outwardly this disease seems so self-imposing, but you should not underestimate how sick these people really are and how helpless they are to control the problem. They need help, not anger.

A friend of my parents daughter blew her brains out about 15 years ago and the family never saw her again because of the trama to her head and face. About 10 yrs latter the mother was training for something and learning about head trama when the teachers used pictures of head trama. One of the pictures used was of her daughter and she freaked out but is now doing OK.

better for her to kill herself, than do what Chris Benoit did, and off him and his whole family, actually it's better for her to end her own life, than end, everyone else, and including her's......
