    Well, that couldn`t have gone any better.

    On a related note, people who try to off themselves like this are selfish pricks. When I used to drive a cab, one of the runs I took was picking up railroad crew at the end of a run (it was cheaper to send them home in a cab then to pay for hotel rooms and send them back on the train, a few days later). Quite a few of them had stories about kids who jumped in front of the train they were driving. They had nightmares about it. Staying for hours while the clean up crew tried to find every piece. Some of them were still in counseling over it. It`s a dick thing to do to other people.

    well you make sure to tell `em that now.

    Whilst i know some of the traindrivers end up with trauma, this is down to their own doing. look at emergency crews, divers and people who have to deal with this poo a lot and they do fine. just flick the switch. it was their choice. nothing you can do about it.

    I agree Patchouly- most train drivers are quite literally inches from the front screen of the train- having someone explode in front of your face is not nice.

    @patchouly: May sound bleak, but it is the easiest way to kill yourself in a country that has no guns. No pain, little effort... High places also a option but not much better for others.

    When people get like that, but not completely sure about it to not give a crap how... they are both selfish and cowards. They want the smoothest way out.

    @MrOrange, thats a very dickish way of looking at it. Lots of emergency crews, divers and "people who deal with this poo a lot" DO get traumas from the more severe cases. Only in their case, heavy counseling and assistance to "get over it" are readily available. For traindrivers this is often sadly lacking.

    yeah I am not sure if she was trying to commit suicide. It looked like she was really out of it. High on something, drunk, falling-over tired, something like that maybe.

    Mr Ike and why is it a dickish way to look at it? i think it`s judgemental and shows lack of empathy towards the person who`s personal hell was so big that the only way to fix it (in their eyes) was to end it. That is not your responsibility and thus you need to let it go. as for the heavy counseling? hah, don`t know how many firemen you know but my old neighbour (over a century old) can tell some colorfull tales of things he saw and never had any counseling. i know ambulance drivers.. it`s part of the job/mindset. Some of the stories my clients/patients tell me are sickening to the gut. it`s my choice to dwell on the horrible poo, or to look for the positive. and that is a choice we all have. so no it`s not dickish. it`s a fact of life. bad poo happens. find a way to deal with it.

    i wasn`t aware of it being a competition?
    But if you want to look at it that way. I`m not the person who lets other people`s actions affect his live and cry woo is me. And you can read that just the way you want too.

    @MrOrange,while it is true a lot of people in the "rescue occupations" CAN just put these things behind them and move on, this is certainly NOT true for all of them. People deal with trauma differently. Some can move on, some "get stuck" and need help to get them through. Telling someone it`s his own fault he`s getting nightmares or even PTSD is a dickish move. It won`t help them in the slightest. While in the end it might be what needs to happen, telling someone that is only going to make them feel guilty about feeling bad, get even more depressed, get even more stressed over being depressed, get even more nightmares due to increased stress, etc, etc.

    My father did a stint on a road accident investigation team. He wasn`t properly counseled through some of the more serious crap he encountered. This led to a very severe case of PTSD, a burnout, suicidal thoughts and nearly the end of his marriage.

    Don`t EVER tell anyone to "just move on".

    I thought she was really tired and starting to fall asleep. What I found selfish actually, was the bunch of people that didn`t give a tiny little sh`it when she was wobbling at the edge of the pavement but were oh so worried when she fell. Only one person actually cared, but he was too late too.

    @mr Ike

    First off sorry to hear about your dad, it sounds like it took it`s toll on the whole family.

    Second off, i never said to "just move on" i said you need to deal with it, as that is up to you, the reason why some people can handle it is becuase they do something differnt. They found a way to get it out of their system (which means other people can too). if you think it`s a dickish move to point out to someone that they can do something about whatever it is that is bothering them. Then i`m happy to be the biggest prick you ever saw. Judging by your reaction and the words you used, (which is all i got so excuse me if i got it wrong) you are now defending/protecting your dad, and angry at people who don`t acknowledge his pain. i hope you realise what that is doing to you and that you ask yourself. is this my burden to bare? or does this belong with my dad. You have your life to live, i hope any of this make sense to you.

    Have a good one,
