Mar 19th 2010 3:04PM In short kinda. I'm in no way saying your depression was any less real or less severe or even that the feelings weren't geniune but even sitting with a knife in your hand making the first cut is not the same as actually going through with it.
Not so long ago there was an interesting article in new scientist tackling the difference between people who really want to kill themselves and people that do. Coming to the conclusion that the latter need to have a predisposition for hurting oneselves. And even then the numbers of people reporting to really want to do it and the ones that do seem very far apart. I don't think people who don't do it are just less selfish.
Mar 19th 2010 2:36PM I dont think you can just say its selfish and I dont think you can relate just by having suicidal thoughts, since you didn't actually do it.
There is no way to know what goes through a persons head when they decide to do it and most people that really want to die are the ones that succeed so even comparing survivors to the ones that died doesn't seem to give an answer.
Calling it selfish is oversimplicfing a very complicated and delicate matter.
Aug 13th 2009 8:20AM I will find something else to play and that would prolly depend on what my guild mates want to do.
Aug 10th 2009 3:29AM I was all excited finally new bear skins :)
Until I turned bear and it felt something was wrong with my screen. I could just see my butt, so I tried adjusting the camera but that butt wouldn't seem small. A guildie actually made a screenshot and its now a running joke on our website.
Aug 4th 2009 7:30AM Wow I dont know so much on the list;
Getting tanking trinket, check out my new druid forms, buy mounts for my two level 20, prospect some ore, buy some new recipes, running HC's, getting into Ulduar and extent the lock-out so my guild can get progress through it.
Jul 31st 2009 5:27AM Okay so let me get this straight the Chinese government is stopping skulls and stuff since it doesn't want to desensitise kids like western countries.
And you find this a good admirable thing, that what i get from your post.
So now I wonder where does a country that break human rights on a regular basis come off from. Wont you think that our kids growing up with violent movies and games are a lot more sensitive of violent then the kids in China?
Jul 24th 2009 8:08AM I decided to stop leveling my level 20 mage and get a priest to 20 so I can get them a mount.
Between the drinking and running it was just too much.
Jul 15th 2009 6:48AM I have a hybrid spec as well and my dps is still good enough to raid comfortable. My dual spec is resto so I really hope I can keep the tank and dps.
Jun 26th 2009 3:33AM Wow I just realised how long I have been playing wow. I remember having thottbot as my go to site and that guild chat was littered with people asking where to go.
We even had some hardcore fast players that started to use coords and research the best action plan for getting the most quest in the shortest period.
And how many times did you need to open your log and read of going back to duskwood was worth it for just turning in that quest or first finish up something else.
Jun 24th 2009 8:50AM I don't really like the mounted parts but I try to do the killing scourge quests everyday and the weapon one. It isn't as fast but one more faction and I'm done. It can easily fit in between my normal dailies and isn't bad.
