What was the aftermath of their death?
I guess even gunshot to head is not a secure method.....I had a distant friend a little older than me in high school. Ended up dating my sister later in life and we became reasonably close. Met my family, they'd been together for years etc. They ended up getting in trouble for some script drug use and getting pulled over one day. He ended up not going to sort this out at the courts and continued to use to some extent. Ended up losing his job months down the line and I suppose things became hard for them. Push came to shove and he shot himself in the head in their bathroom with a low caliber firearm. Death was not immediate. He was in the hospital for a solid week with severe brain damage. The bullet had not penetrated through both sides of his skull and had bounced a few times through his head. He could move his fingers a bit when he heard someones voice but that was it. We were there to see him pass with friends. Left my sister a mess for years. It has now been about seven years so she is much better although her life is still a scramble.
That's quite a lot, is this a coincidence or does your country have a high incidence of suicide!2 high school classmates, 1 college classmate, 1 close friend, husband of a close friend, brother of a close friend, student that I taught, murder/suicide down the street (met before but didn’t know well).
Couple others that were suspected suicide but never confirmed.
The father of a friend shot himself in the head while at home, his body was discovered by his sons. Didn't leave any messages or notes.What was the aftermath of their death?
They fuck you up, your mum and dad.
They may not mean to, but they do.
They fill you with the faults they had
And add some extra, just for you.
But they were fucked up in their turn
By fools in old-style hats and coats,
Who half the time were soppy-stern
And half at one another’s throats.
Man hands on misery to man.
It deepens like a coastal shelf.
Get out as early as you can,
And don’t have any kids yourself.
I'm a 911 dispatcher, so I've heard more people CTB than I can count. I've always done my job and tried to talk them down, but most of them, the 911 call wasn't to try to get talked out of it, it was just to let someone know.
And no, having to deal with all that isn't the reason I'm ready to CTB. See my post about my situation.
Hi, can you tell us more about what exactly happens after someone CTBs? Who is contacted first? Paramedics? Police? What is the standard procedure for handling dead bodies?
One of the main concerns that people here have is making sure that they aren't discovered too soon and rescued by the authorities before dying. If you could provide any information, it would be much appreciated.
By the way, what were the most common methods for the people you've heard CTB?
See, I think that is unforgivable. The only hangup I have with all this is my family. It's bad enough what my CTB will do to them, just from me leaving. But I could never let them have a chance of finding my body.My great-grandfather also committed suicide by hanging himself. Although I do not know the reasons.
It seems that my father found him.
