Rjoneslaw, it's Fancy1959. I skimmed through the article and you are right, hopefully it might help someone who is considering taking the easy way out. I like to think we're the support system that helps too prevent such ideas and events from occurring.

But I have to say this article is actually not about self-care but about suicide prevention. In my mind there's a very Broad and huge difference between the two. When I think about self-care I think about the struggle I go through every morning getting ready for the day. What used to take me 30 minutes to throw on a clothes do the hair and put a little makeup on sometimes takes me an hour to an hour and a half. If I throw a shower in there in the morning you have to tack on an extra 30 to 45 minutes. Everything seems to be in slow motion if you know what I mean!
