What doesn’t make sense is her surprise when he actually commits suicide and her grief. She spent 2 weeks telling him to do it!if you feel that you are helping him because he’s in pain then don’t be so surprised and sad! I guess this shows how sick she was. They were not a good pair! Both too sick to support one another. After watching there are a million “what if’s “ you think of. My sister committed suicide. I don’t think people want to die they just want to get out of their situation or pain. For young people, if you are depressed get counseling and medication. If one drug doesn’t work try another. Life can be beautiful, especially since you have a lot of life left to live! Don’t give up!
