Whilst I feel for the family of the deceased, I have to ask myself why did she make such a public spectacle of it? People who don't want to be here any more don't make a show of their death unless they are sending a message to someone . . . . . . . . . discuss?

Reply Posted by Sam Rushworth on Saturday April 21 2012 at 23:58
There is a car that had it a traffic light on the round about, on west way going out of town. i dont know if it is the same one but looks bad :(

Sometimes you just don't want to talk. Rest well sweetheart. And to 'I wonder', I d on't think a young girls death and whether she was trying to send a message is appropriate. I had a friend who committed suicide and I don't think that he thinking about sending a message out.

My heart goes out to those let behind, she must have been down the deep dark hole of despair .It take courage to die like that there are easier ways. Sometimes one might think its selfish there are people that don't have that choice they live or die. Life is very precious.... but who are we to judge. She's now at peace, I hope her family in time find that peace. R.I.P.

Nobody knows what's going on in a young women's head, one who can only see one way out! Desperation and not being able to see the end of the tunnel, who knows. Let's hope that this young girl's life wasn't taken in vain and the truth will soon be apparent.

That poor young women must have been so desperate to do something like that, I am a Mum and returned to my car with my grown up daughter, It had just happened, we sat in the car and cried. RIP whoever you are, our thoughts are with your family and friends.

there are very few places someone with problems can get the help they need. even if they can ask for help when at the bottom of that black hole, there are waiting lists and not enough qualified people to help. poor soul rest in peace.

R.I.P Sweetheart, cannot imagine how all your loved ones are feeling right now :( rips me apart when things get so bad people see the only way out is to be away from here, its an awful feeling to be so low, hope youve found peace now, after battling with numerous issues myself over the years i still feel there is a massive lack of support for people for whatever reason they may need it and i guess right now her friends and family are going to be needing a hell of a lot of support and i hope they get it. Such a shame big hugs n love to u all xx

this is a sad sad way to go when you feel that no-one is listening to you this is the only option you think is best and its the wrong one. if only someone listened to her or she had somewhere to go to talk then maybe we wouldnt be posting these messages, the problem is where can you go ? theres nothing there for us, things need to change and people need help to stop this tragedy happening again. so sorry to lose someone in a way like this r.i.p and thoughts to all your family. sincerely...
