She experienced first-hand, the sad loss of immediate family members and friends. When people that close to you decide to end their own lives it is sure to have a profound impact at that very moment in ones life and for the remaining years thereafter. Denise Robinson decided to highlight, that indeed, suicide is not a dirty word. In fact, it is a decision made by people who are so advanced in their choosing of their own destiny that often times the ones left behind find it traumatizing to comprehend. Many unanswered questions often ring, Why take their own life? What drove them? How could they do it? All-too-common questions are often asked after the aftermath but very rarely does anyone - who has not suffered from severe depression - fully understand the reasons before that fateful decision- that decision that ends the pain for the sufferer but leaves the remaining loved ones baffled and confused for years to come. The author points out with this clear and distinct draft that no matter who you are or where you are- we are all vulnerable and all capable of falling into depths of depression. It has the ability to escape no-one. It is like a cancer that can spread- spread so far that there is almost a point of no return. Denise Robinsons experience- clearly very harrowing, can be a source of help and perhaps a means of comfort for anyone suffering and might just help to end the stigma of depression and highlight that suicide, is indeed, not a dirty word.
