That was cold, plain and simple. And yes, it was the flippant and irreverent tone of your next post that bothered me. Making light of everything isn't always a good thing. Sometimes it's just inappropriate. I agree, normally we don't bash against each other so much but these ARE things that would have always grated on me. Maybe you've just been a little too flippant and insensitive to others today? [/quote] No, we all have our own personalities, mine hasn't changed in the past bit at all. If you read undermine in it, that was your own projection, not my intention. We've talked about that before, how "triggers" pop up to inject despair. If I see someone mention that one, it bugs me, makes me suspicious of their true intentions. We're better than that. We're better than lots of things we do. And I think we touched on this earlier, I told you something that explains why I said it. My friend, he was one of us. So forgive me if I'm flippant, the alternative is wallowing in it on the anniversary. [/quote] Yep, you did but you're not personally one who has attempted suicide in the past, have you? Do you know what depths of despair and no hope of escape one feels when they are at that point? I do, personally. It's horrendous. That's why I NEVER use someone's suicide attempts against them in any kind of argument. And you did undermine. You said this: [quote:Bea Nameless:MV85NjMyNjNfMzQ5MTU5NzBfQzY1M0NDQkE=]And if you're focusing on suicide, then you're cold, as in not warm, not hot.[/quote] If you didn't mean to undermine, then perhaps you could better illuminate your meaning and intention because it reads very cold in itself. And the scooby doo remark--I'm sorry, I take offense. I agree, you are normally a pretty free spirit and I respect you for that as well as I generally respect and appreciate your humor. However, equating what people have been trying to do here for the past 2 years to a cheesy 70's cartoon? Come on, Bea. You're better than that, yourself. [/quote] No, Scooby Doo is slang for solving a mystery. If I'm guilty of anything, it's hanging out with people much younger than me and taking up their quirks of language. Cold, meaning on the wrong track. Like you're getting warmer, warmer. We're better than ingrained programming. And while I haven't tried directly, I'll admit it was sheer cowardice that prevented it. I've attempted it indirectly too many times to count. I just don't talk about my self-destructive times out loud, but there have been many, many, too many. Not lately, but I've been there. But no, I don't want to talk about it. I'm not ashamed, but I'm not proud. [/quote]
Were you ever removed, many times, from your regular class for "testing"?
Were you shown a series of high speed images on a television, not once, but many times?
Was the school psychologist selectively interested in you?
