CW: Cynical Warning.
Anybody else cringe all through Suicide Prevention Day/Week/Month? Anybody else roll their eyes at the "Ask for Help" messages? Or search the lists of "Warning Signs" to make sure you're covering your tracks?
If you call a help line, what if the cops arrive to handcuff you in front of your neighbors to help you enjoy your free trip to the ER? That's the only thing that will be free. If you go to the ER, you may or may not be admitted. Either way, the bill will leave you homeless.
When the naive, new-to-the-world-of-suicide-prevention person actually asks for help and goes through the demeaning process of not receiving it, it's like that outstretched hand, the one on top, turns around and pushes down the head of the one who has been reaching up.
