  • Fercat

    @M: People prone to depression have their illness aggravated by the steady stream of Godawful news from everywhere else.

  • Huh

    @M: A lot? Don’t you mean 2? Are there any others?

    wow that’s so sad. for me everyday is a struggle to not want to off myself so whenever I see someone lose the battle I feel even more sad

    r.i.p

    btw with no racist intent, white men are the ones who commit suicides the most, so I am quite shocked it’s a black female.

    I will pray for everyone who is fighting depression right now and suicide thoughts.

    take care people

    @what: It doesn’t matter the social statistics. Everyone is human. You cannot give. I know it is everyday struggle, but it will be all worth it. I understand when I read someone comityed suicide, it makes me feel that there no hope. I have to realize that there hope and keep running .

    Simone was signed to Dr Luke’s record label. He was the one who was blamed for causing Kesha’s eating disorder. I wonder if he and Simone got along.
