   Over the years, I have had the opportunity to talk to many desperate people who thought their
problems were so monumental that they considered ending their life.

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Most of the time, personal problems can be
dealt with in a healthier way. There is no need to end it all! People who feel helpless and hopeless do
not always utilize the best judgement, especially when they are agitated.

If you ever find yourself in such a desperate state, get yourself to a helping person fast. Or, if you know
someone who is suicidal, get them help as well.

This is why I included a chapter in my book,"When to seek professional help." Most people can be
saved from self-destruction by professional counseling. Let me share with you some case studies of
people who turned their lives around, after a suicide attempt. (Their names have been changed, to
protect their real identities)

Sam was diagnosed with AIDS and had only a few months left to live. As a result, Sam felt like ending
his life. His doctor asked me to talk to him. After hearing Sam's story of despair, I assured him, "You're
very much alive now." I told him that there are new medications coming out all the time and that it was
difficult to determine exactly how much time he had left. He agreed to come back for counseling and
focus on some short term goals. Sam's condition became worse and he died in two years. However,
Sam made the most of the time that he had left.

Carolyn attempted suicide by taking an overdose of medicine. Evidently, she was depressed after her
boyfriend broke up with her. They had planned to get married, and even sent out wedding invitations.
Carolyn had also purchased a beautiful wedding gown. In counseling, Carolyn realized that her fiance
was not a person she could depend on. A year later, she fell in love and got married to someone else.
Finally, she was able to wear the beautiful wedding dress that she had stashed away. Plus, Carolyn
was happier now than she ever imagined she could be.

Carlos, a 29-year-old policeman, passed out in garage. He was sitting behind the wheel, intoxicated,
with the motor running. His wife had left him because of his alcoholism. In counseling, Carlos was
stubborn and refused to cooperate. Eventually, Carlos realized he would permanently be divorced from

his children if he did not make some changes in his life. Carlos went to rehab. Today, life is better for
him and he spends his spare time helping alcoholics.

Stuart was facing a jail sentence for stealing from his company. At the sentencing, Stuart was
ashamed and felt like life was no longer worth living. He changed his attitude in counseling, however.
Stuart realized his sentence would be short and all was not lost. He could eventually start over, and
have his freedom back.

Martha desperately wanted a baby, but was struggling to conceive. When the doctor told Martha that
she was infertile, she was afraid that her husband would leave her. In a moment of panic, Martha tried
to commit suicide. Martha's husband was supportive, and suggested they adopt a child. In counseling,
Martha stopped seeing herself as a victim, and found a way to be happy again. In counseling, all of
these people ere able to work through their problems. Regrettably, many people in similiar situations
assume there is no other way out, and take their own lives.

Suicide statistics are high for doctors, dentists, police officers, adolescents, college students, and
others. If you ever find yourself desperate, remember the best thing to do is to get help. Call a doctor,
psychologist, psychiatrist, social worker, your preacher, or a friend. Do not think harming yourself in
any way. Life is too precious to cut it short.

sources that will respect YOU and your privacy.

Coping With Teens

Most of us were never taught to be parents. So we can't help but disappoint ourselves sometimes.
How often have you heard yourself using the very words you hated hearing from your own parents?

When our kids become teenagers, it gets even harder. They seem to reject everything we've taught
them. As far as they're concerned, we know nothing. Our values and beliefs are constantly challenged.
Every word we utter is seen as interference. Emotions run high.

But we're more important to our teens than ever. As they try out the values of their peers, who are
more influential than ever, we counter the pull of drugs, alcohol and early sex. These entangle children
every day and can ruin their lives.

runaways often travel short distances and come back after a few days. Nonetheless, take action

Think clearly and logically about where your child might be. Try to figure out why he is missing or
running away at this particular time. Follow only those suggestions that are useful and in order of their
importance. Keep a notebook recording all the steps you've taken and dates.

Most young people end up killing themselves because they simply don't know where else to turn. They
are in some kind of pain that seems unbearable and they want the pain to stop. They end up stopping
their entire lives just because they didn't know what else to do.
