Strange medical call...

Just when I thought I have seen it all. The other night we were dispatched to a attempted suicide. We arrived on scene to find a women who stabbed herself in the stomach with a 6 inch steak knife.

Upon further investigation we found that this lady did not want to live anymore. Hmmm, I bet by now you are asking why. Well as we are doing our physical survey.. we find she is missing her right leg.

And to top it all off her husband was the cause of it (he presently resides with her). Come to find out about six months back he was backing up his 18 wheeler at home and accidently ran her over, crushing her leg.

Now I had to ask myself why, and would I do the same in her situation... Maybe. I do feel sorry for her that she lost her leg, but is it worth ending your life? I guess to each his/her own.

Hi, welcome to blog!

Are you aware there is a new group created for bloggers and their readership to meet and frolic in the chat room? (A place for serious discussion as well)

A group where interesting blog posts will be “spot-lighted” along with the links of how to get there. A place where new kids on the block can actually get seen as well as the predominant “hierarchy”.

A place where ideas can flow--from suggested blog topics, to writing "critiques", to directions on how to better use the elements of color, photos, and font style/size to make your blog more eye appealing; as well as instructions on how to better use linking to other posts.

Being that this is an adult site, we will also have a group post running where writers and their followers can indicate where they're from so maybe you might actually be able to meet some folk "local" to you.

Flirtatious banter is encouraged--crude obscene assaults will not be tolerated and are subject to deletion.

So...Stop in and have a little fun over your cup o' joe!

Here is a link to the group Blog Cafe, look forward to meeting you there!

I can't speak from experience from the leg aspect but I'm sure she
is going thru some major depression. I can speak through experience
on that subject. Depression is the worst thing that I have ever gone thru in my life. No matter how many friends you have it just doesn't make a bit of difference.You have to deal with it yourself. I was in the doctors office along with my wife and the doctor asked me "Do want to commit suicide"?... I broke down and did not know what to say.
I had a million thoughts running thru my mind, then looking at my wife's beautiful face and said no.
After that I slowly came out of depression with help and medication.
Total time dealing with all of this took over 2 years. I now realize I put my friends in family thru hell and back.
In a nut shell I feel she will be ok and realize suicide isn't the way out.
