Suicide is painless? Well, surviving ain't.

My soon-to-be exhusband attempted suicide because his life was \"overwhelming\". What he didn't realize--couldn't realize because he was too wrapped up in his own pain--was that the aftermath of his attempt would rip our family apart and put stresses on us that we would have avoided if he had succeeded. I don't wish him dead...but I resent that his need for drama created ripples of chaos that we're still trying to weather, almost a year later.
