I'm sure we all pray that she's OK. It wasn't clear where her husband was at the time. I do wish people would realize that there IS help available, but they must go and get it directly and in person, for a crisis like that --- see their doctor, go to hospital, whatever. While obviously we greatly sympathize with anyone feeling so desperate, I wish people would also recognize that posting a message like that is deeply upsetting to so many people --- to nice people who badly want to help and who are being prevented from helping by the way the person has chosen to post the message. That's unkind, too.
