from SSRI Stories...

Apparently, she was on medication for depression and has attempted to take her life in the past ...

these god damned SSRI drugs are found in nearly every mass-shooting incident as well as many isolated incidents such as this

And maybe it's the kind of people who are prescribed those drugs are the ones who are more likely to do such things. Maybe it's the other way around from what you think.

I would assert that both you and @xeemee are correct because it's likely a combination of both phenomena.

These drugs give you the little bounce of motivation you needed in order to finish yourself of. As they were designed to do.

Regardless, those drugs will fuck you up. Them as a cure causes the very supposed thing they're to cure.

My cousin was on them. He threw himself off a five story building. RIP bro. Those drugs fuck you up.

I want to make an incest joke about your cousin begin your "bro", but now is not the time.

RIP

I would hazard that your cousin was already a fucked up person.

Also there is SSRIs connections to suicidal ideation and links to increasing the risks of suicide. Some of these have been given a black box label.

yes, i remember reading about a trial study for a new anti-depressant for kids a long time ago - apparently several kids tried killing themselves during the trial period and apparently a few succeed

supposedly that drug is on the market and i don't recall which is it, but i believe it was a very popular one

I've talked to a researcher about it before. He explained it to me in a way that makes sense but I'm not smart enough to explain it myself. It has something to do with the fact that you are not allowed to participate in a drug study if you are suicidal. Invariably some people in a depressed population become suicidal and when they do it is noted in the study in a way that people who don't understand how drug studies work or who willfully misrepresent how they work hyperbolize and pass laws or regulations to require those labels.

It has to have something to do with the extreme sensitivity in going to a Dr about being molested and then a big let down when you find out that all they can do is give you a drug. If the Dr would just treat her like a woman (most women have been molested more than once) and just say ya it happens to most but that doesnt mean keep letting it happen. No one cared enough to provide a safety net to her before the assault and it stuck with her.
