> yesterday was difficult because of the suicide propositions and also in the morning i was sentenced to 2 yrs probation and several thousand dollars worth of fines
Sar I have three questions. What do you think would have been an appropriate sentence and fine for the crime committted? What type of sentencing do you think would have really acted as a deterrant for you not to find yourself in a similar situation or what "action" would have this effect? And third, do you see any correlation between your mood yesterday and the events that happened?
The reason for my third question is that I've noticed for myself when something appears overwhelming is when the suicidal thoughts would appear. By accepting responsibility for my actions and thoughts and acknowledging them and finally putting my efforts towards looking for productive answers I've been able to squash them more swiftly.

Nothing embarrassing about it. Sometimes just having a friend to listen helps us to solve our problems, thinking aloud.
