Just found out Tom Scott, who worked as an Ob/GYN here over two years ago committed suicide in Florida last night. He was a good Dr. and a good man. May he rest in peace. Prayers are with his family!

Usually a result of Depression, suicide is a long-term solution to a short-term problem.

ANYONE who is suicidal needs to hear my story of a 'near miss' because a friend explained to me that the light at the end of the tunnel is sometimes hidden because the tunnel has curves in it. But if you reach out and touch the side of the tunnel you'll feel the grooves left by others who followed the curves to the light. There IS a light at the end of the tunnel of depression ... just hang on and find friends who will help walk with you until you find it.

Suicide solves no problems ... there is no problem so great that suicide is the answer ... and it leaves family and friends with the guilt of wondering what they could have done to help and why they didn't notice how bad the depression was.

Get help, don't miss the good things that will happen in the future because of the bad things that are driving you crazy right now.

Trust me, I've been there.

People think they will be better off by killing themselves. So sad....if they go to Hell - that's a much worse place, but the Devil blinds them into thinking it's the only way out. I heard about this today - I didn't know this doctor, but I feel bad for his family.

It's amazing that we haven't had a lot more suicide with the economy the way it is. I guess that shows that people have faith in our country and it's ability to come back and that they can recover with the country. It will get better and we just need to remember who was there in our time of dispair. His name doesn't start with O. but G.

No crap David, that's nothing to joke about and I would choke that jackass too!

Dr. Tom was a good man and you hit the spot up there.. Depression, get help! I am sure his family is hurting the most. It doesn't solve anything to do something like this! It a selfish act, period! And kudos to the ones that have seeked help and have major family and friend support, that my friends is the most important!

Prayers to his family because they will be asking why for the the rest of their lives. God bless his children too... They didn't deserve this at all!

There is some very good posts on here. There have been a good many suicides related to the community. They are usually people in the community limelight and pride won't let them admit they have financial trouble plus they just can't take going down a notch or two.
I want to hang in there to see what happens and I don't want to give in to anyone that bugs me.

So sorry to hear about this. My thoughts are with the family. I too had a family member commit suicide and it's horrible for the family that's left behind. Thoughts of what could I have done different? But I just hope that this was not work related. Think about it! If you had to look at some of the cats around here you might need to be on some type of antideppresant too. I mean don't get me wrong, you would have good days. But when it was a bad day,(depending on what you had to look at) it was really bad. Hope he is at peace.

Sorry, the details are private to friends and family and knowing the "nurse" that posted this, they are nothing but gossiping losers. And the practice he was in here, you won't find any of them saying nothing about this. As for the people that worked with him in the hospital, if you want to try to find out, call his mother, but I guarantee she won't say a word!!

I'm really upset that this made Topix and mortified for the family of the "subject"
that someone dared to put it under!
