  •  Suicide Rate Among Teens... (3+ / 0-)

    35 year ago compared with now. Is it more now than it was when I was in high school? If so, why?

    I was bullied and I wasn't one who fought back, I just took it. It wasn't until I became a drunk that I fought back (or started fights). Although I may have harbored the suicidal thought or two, neither I nor my nerdy and equally bullied friends seriously attempted to or succeeded at killing ourselves.

    There must be more to it than bullying. The stress for teens must be a lot higher than it was when I was 15 or 16 years old.

    This head movie makes my eyes rain.
