I have mixed feelings. I know I tend to panic if someone else sounds desperate. So, if I feel they are in danger, it hurts me very much to see the continued suffering. On the other hand, having been suicidal many times, I feel as if this may be the only remaining place for support. I am not sure there is a "right" answer. It is human nature (mine anyway) to want to help others. The problem is, on a forum such as this, are there more people being hurt by the stress of such a panic and our "WE" qualified to give such help?
Just my opinion. :)
