Breaking Point

I can't take it no more this is too much Your words are just words you use as a crutch My mind is a mess these pills just dont work Why don't you care I'm going beserk One minute I'm up the next one I'm down This life is strangling me I might as well drown I sit in the dark never seeing the light You're all out to get me I'm living in fright I polish my guns They are a true friend Since you don't love me Today will be our end
***based on a true story of a co-worker. Last weekend he attempted to shoot his wife over cold dinner**** Hope he can get the help he truely needs

This is scarey! At first I thought you were describing a bi-polar experience but this is much worse. I'm glad his wife is okay.

well glad to know it was merely an "attempt" and that he did not actually kill her. It is happening all over the world. People are just reaching their breaking points. good one about an example from today's world.

Congrats on a real thing that happens. Am glad you told us. It's amazing how (I believe) we are all capable of being pushed to the limit. To shoot someone though? Wow. Good work. Thomas

Tim, Your write here paints well a very tragic and very frightening event indeed!! I hope the person in question gets all the medical and psychiatric help he needs. (Be careful too my very good friend -- one does not know when someone like this could spin totally out of control!!) My thoughts and prayers are with this man and his wife. May the Lord help them!! Best, Gary

He was ordered held in a psychiatric ward for 72 hours but I haven't heard anything else...hugs Tim

It is a tragic event indeed.Its scary when the mind snaps and lose its reason.Its scary for both victim and aggressor cause they will both suffer consequences. This is sad and he definitely needs help,as his wife needs refuge at such times.I dont support the idea of owing a gun so easy, to get a licence for guns should be in certain cases only .Guns are not toys. The family is in my prayers dear.. May God help them both.

A 7 from me! :) Love and hugs! xxx D.
