Sorry to hear. Must be hard to be around that sort of tragedy. Personally, I blame the the battering Christian belief has been given by a secular media etc for the cause of such depression and alienation. Cultural dumbdowning leaves us with saturday night takeaways, Dancing with the duds and Ireland's got Talent. Anyone would need Prozac to survive that shitttte. And I'm not talking about RCC when I say Christian belief---they were/are mostly just a bunch of corrupt control freak Fascists. As an aside, have also got my suspicions around internet gambling and high rate of sudden suicide. PP will let you bet your life away over a 20minute period if you're gullible and don't know what you're dealing withIn the last 10 to 12 years i knew 5 fellas who comitted suicide, of the 4 only 1 ever complained of depression, a number of years earlier he fallen off a ladder while paintig and hurted his head. He went everywhere getting help, he had tried unsuccessfully a number of times, his wife done her best never to leave him alone in the house, for ssome reaason he was left alone, when she came back the shed door waas closed and she knew straigght away.
The other 3 men, never, the first fella, he was driving a van with a work coleague with him, pulled up beside the Moy and by the other fella realised what he was going to do it was to late.their was something on his mind as his sister was busy that day at work and when she got to check her phone she had 18 missed calls from him but it was to late at that stage.
The 2nd fell, married no kids, fine new house, fine farm of land, always in good humour, one morning he rang an neighbour who he had talked to in months, that he had a cow who was having trouble calvingand he might come up and give him a hand. Would have take 10 to 15 minutes to get from his house to the shed and along the way he heard a shot. Not paying much heed to the shot he entered the stable and found him lying on the ground, he thought he had got a kick from a cow, but he had shot himself.
The 3rd, seperated with 2 kids, had a job, had not heard of him being depressed.
The 4th fella yesterday, alaways seemed to be in good humour., the last person who u would ever think of doing it, worked for a farmer, played a couple gaames of cards with only a couple of weeks ago. Lived at home with his parents, went out to the shed yesterday morning and hung himself, it has being said that he spent all day Sat. in bed, so their must have being something troubling him.
