What a shame. tom.
The problem with these things is that there is no way to be frank without sounding heartless.
Yeah it sucks that people do that to themselves, but you know what? It changes nothing for me. I'll die on my own soon enough.
Life is simply WAAAAAAY too short to get all wound up over every turd who flushes him/herself.
One thing is certain- of any two people, one will outlive the other. The longer you live, the more people you will see go. Being alive so you can attend funerals is the best gift of all. That is kind of the point, right?
Does the fact that she made music increase the tragedy? Not a bit as far as I am concerned.
We are on a rock flying through space. Every day is a miracle.
Suicide is a tragic and selfish act, it is brought about by one's inner demons. Those left behind are the ones that will suffer with guilt and pain.
Hopefully she found the peace she so desperately sought.
It's extreamly rare where person who committed suicide had things really bad. I.E. Debilitating pain that is leading to loss of motor function. So in months you will be imprisoned in body having others feed, change your diaper....
Them mention medical issue?
Most suicides are selfish. Many have the financial ability to get help, change path they are headed down. (Sadly easier to say then do). Even if they realize.
Mental illness can be as debilitating as physical illness.

Drug overdoses are avoidable.

You full of caca.
You left out it's a long term solution to a short term problem.
If only drugs were legal, this...
An acrimonious end at UMD?
Sure sounded like she was beloved, gifted and giving, and yet...
Well, her troubles are now over.
A quick prayer for her family's grace and recovery. Amen
The article said accidental overdose not suicide.
I have said that in past. But realize it can be a long term problem.
Folks are touchy on suicide. So it's easy not to get upset at some comments. It's hit most families. It's hard when it hits people you know. You wish you would have done "something". Realized what was going to happen. You need to get over it. The "signs" are most clear in hindsight.
Thing is (from 3rd party perspective) the "reason" for suicide is weak. Not to person involved it's not. I wonder if there isn't a sub- conscious thought. "It will be like reset in vidio game... I can do better next time"???
I have felt dang low many times. Been in serious pain... Ending it just not a answer.
"Thielen-Gaffey, 50, was battling concurrent medical conditions and additionally struggled at times with depression after an acrimonious end to her 16-year career at UMD in 2015.
She was overusing sleep medications and muscle relaxants, said her husband."
She lost her job at the college after 16 years and was depressed. The medical conditions aren't clearly defined.
Muscle relaxers and sleep meds are a bad mix; she had a lot to live for--husband and two young daughters--but maybe her addiction to the pharma clouded that vision.
I feel worst for her two, young children. This event will more than likely haunt them for the rest of their lives.
IMHO: accidental overdose vs suicide= we want the family to get the insurance money. It's essentially the same thing, worded differently.
In many ways we as a society kill ourselves every day and we don't call it suicide. We overeat, we under eat, we don't take care of our illnesses, we don't treat our conditions, we ingest known carcinogens that lead to cancer, we drive recklessly, play with fire, etc. There are lots of ways of doing one's self in, but we just don't usually call it for what it is.
Didn't click the link. I assume she over dosed on pot. What a tragedy.
