    Sad to hear.

    It has a certain connotation based on how it’s commonly used. One that doesn’t befit the suicide of an innocent college student. That reads like she pulled out the thesaurus and chose a synonym without regard to context.

    God this is terrible. I can't imagine the shock running through so many people. It's also really sobering to think that a guy who is "living the dream" really wasn't and resorted to this. Depression, etc. is so scary.

    I don’t know if it helps or not, but I hope the professionals and family can get some kind of info/closure on how he was really feeling from the note. Idk, note isn’t going to bring him back, but I’d think I’d have so many more questions if there wasn’t one.

    Extremely sad situation for everyone affected by this.

    CTE is possible

    Maybe this kid played db through his younger days?

    A kid that lived about 15 miles south of where I'm at a few years back shot himself in the chest knowing he had it. In his note he wanted his brain examined for CTE and I believe doctors say it was one of the worst cases they've ever seen. I don't believe he ever played college ball.

    Suicide and mental health scare the shit out of me. Lost a brother-in-law to it a few years ago. Extremely hard on everyone involved, from the guilt to the hurt to the anger to the sadness to the etc etc etc, rinse and repeat over and over forever.

    Seek help if and when you need it. Please.

    They've found it in high school kids. It was a small study but like ~20% had it.

    If you get to playing in college you almost certainly have CTE.
    "The disease was identified in 110 out of 111 former NFL players. It was also found in three of the 14 high school players and 48 of the 53 college players."

    Yea a friend in college left no note and his mom could never make any sense of it and has never really recovered. Same thing, always outwardly very happy.

    Those stats are a little misleading because they tested people who requested it, so it’s not a random population of football players.

    I’m not offering a differential diagnosis, just hopeful that a kid his age couldn’t have already had it advance to that point.

    You’re missing the fucking point because you’re dense. Just reminding someone not to fucking make jokes about someone’s potential suicide in a thread about suicide, isn’t making a thread about myself. Especially since said person is a doctor.

    I see a lot of people saying "if you are in a dark place, reach out." And a lot of people saying "so and so person died by suicide and seemed happy, had no signs, etc." So my question is what are you supposed to say to the person that "reaches out"? What can you say to someone in that situation

    I’m fine now. And I don’t post nearly as much as I used to, but just don’t do that shit to anyone again man. That’s really what I was getting at. Especially when someone takes to the internet because they feel as though they can’t tell anyone irl their problems.
