Sad news

I just visited one of my MS chat rooms and learned that a 28-year old man with MS who visited the site often killed himself. Apparently, he was depressed about his illness and a recent break-up. His sister found him.

Suicide is a very permanent solution to a temporary emotion. I am so grateful that my mind doesn't go there with MS (or anything) these days. My life is way, way too me, to my children, and to all the other people I love and who love me.

I didn't know this man who decided that his life was no longer worth living. I don't even know his name--just his screen name. Still, this is so very, very tragic. There's no do-over with suicide.
