Wtf is going on?!

Sorry. I just had to say it. I mean, seriously! This is a problem even amongst those who've never seen combat? Wtf!

...

On a wish-it-was-unrelated note, I'm searching for a betting pool on how long until wingnuts blame this on repealing DADT.

As someone who tried to take his own life once I say this to those in the Armed Forces and out of it considering suicide: It gets better.

What drives a person to suicide is despair. In my case, and I think, in most the despair comes from believing that everything you've been told is a lie and feeling helpless because of that.

I can see why people in the Armed Forces would be considering it. They've been working hard and sacrificing much for a goal assigned to them by fools. Now that it's pretty much come to grief it's not surprising they should feel adrift.

Taking your own life is a final act of getting power back from those who have taken from you.

*blinks* That never occurred to me before. Now that you've said it, it seems obvious.

I'm remembering a bit from something I read many years ago, and that's all I remember about it.

A wife who had tried to escape an abusive husband and failed took her own life. Her suicide note read, "Come and get me now, you bastard!"

It was fiction but having been there I know the feeling.
