Thanks, I forgot about this storyline.
Florian Krawitz says
Yeah, me too. I didn’t get the comic at all at first. Now I got it.
BJ Tennant says
I was the woman in this story line and along with battling my own demons, I tried to battle his.
When I couldn’t take the emotional abuse anymore I left, and he told me that he was going to kill himself… For six years afterwards on our “anniversary” he’d call me and tell me how he wanted to kill himself, every year I’d send the police of of his place, every year I’d take the abuse hurled back at me – what a cunt I was, how dare I violent his trust, blah blah blah – after the cops left his place.
Then three years ago he didn’t call me, he didn’t text me and hasn’t since. Sometimes I wonder if he’s ok, if he finally went through it…

Mentel illness is not intentional way abuse it a physical biological problem that transcendences all educational backgrounds no matter the patient was thought to believe.!
Jose Bello says
A painful, but necessary storyline. Some of us need regular reminders of the effect our actions have on those left behind. The more painful the reminder the more likely it is to help.
Or hurt and discourage seeking help or developing relationships, both romantic and platonic.
How does a person who is battling suicidality manage their relationships so this isn’t the most likely scenario? We are overwhelmed by our own pain and need it to end, but we usually don’t want to generate this kind of doubt in the lives of those who we cared about.
Dealing with people’s death is horrible. The blow cannot be softened. It is what it is.
Felis Dee says
It’s such a difficult thing to be in a position like this character’s. After a while, you have to do what’s best for you and take care of yourself first, otherwise you aren’t in a position where you can help the other person either. Not to mention that depression can make the sufferer exhibit abusive (psychological ore physical) behaviour in some cases, so it can be beat for both parties if you leave that situation until the other person can get their brain under control.
But of course, if you don’t stay and be their life raft, and they drown, naturally you’ll be the one blamed, by the depressed person, by everyone else not privy to the details of the relationship, by your own brain… so super sucky. ???

Basically you’re damned either way. For many in these types of relationships, it’s a no win situation, sadly.

Whats funny is someone close to me committed suicide, and I’m worried because I don’t care. Like, I just see it as a choice she made. I feel I SHOULD care. Or feel something.
they say “socialize” i hear “SUICIDE”
