Hello Mary

We seem to share similar experiances of these things, and both live up in the north. It would be interesting to see some researches on this. It wouldn┤t surprise me that suicidal rate could be related to what is perceived as being strong in different communities. Are people who live in communities , were" being strong" is perceived as not sharing and showing emotions in more risk at developing emotional and physical diseases ?

I am now reading the book "The Top Five Regrets of the Dying" ( Bronnie Ware)

Regret 1: I wish I┤d had the courage to live a life true to myself
Regret 2: I wish I hadn┤t worked so hard
Regret 3: I wish I had the courage to express my feelings
Regret 4: I wish I had stayed in touch with my friends
Regret 5 : I wish I had let myself be happier

This says it all, right ? And explains why it is a priviledge to work with serously ill people

when you reach the end of your rope , tie a knot in it and hang on
