Why would somebody in her profession want to do something like that? A psychologist has to be a pretty stable person to help others and keep them from doing the same thing she did. If you were going to kill yourself you would be referred to a psychologist! Sounds like some fowl play.

I'm a good listener and talk to people about their problems pretty often, but it doesn't mean I'm a happy person. I've considered blowing out my brains many times.

TO QUESTIONABLE: She left a suicide note which stated she had issues and was not happy with her life. You're right though; a psychologist is someone WE go to with our problems, but they are as prone to have problems as the rest of us. Maybe they feel that because they are the psychologist, they have no one above them to turn to with their own problems.

I just learned of this. I am sad beyond words. Paul was a person who helped me so much. When I needed legal help, she gave it to me and waited for years until I could pay. She was indeed someone special, and I am sorry that she was unable to find another way out of her trouble (whatever that was).

If you are still checking this, I would like to know what happened. I am so sad that she lost her life.

I will never understand this. I knew Paula, but this is NOT the Paula I knew. Something must have gone terribly wrong. I am sad to think that I will never talk to her again.

Paula was a dear friend of mine for a number of years. We drifted apart, but had periodic contact through 2007-2008. I didn't find out about her 2009 death until months afterwards. I did talk to on of her close friends and discovered she had been going through a number of physical and health challenges. She also was facing some very hard financial challenges, no doubt influenced by the financial meltdowns of late 2008 for some of her clients. This friend of Paula's told me that she was quite a different person in her last few months. In a really sad note, just a week after her suicide, a MAJOR client of hers had decided (no knowing of her death) to renew a lucrative consulting contract with her. This would have given her substantial income, and may have made a difference to her decisions. We will all miss her.

maybe she got tired of listening to everybody's problems and drama

Thanks for your response. Paula was an incredible lady. Years ago when, for personal reasons, I decided to change my name, Paul represented me and waited almost 10 years until I could pay her. I am glad that I paid her (plus the interest that I decided to add on). I am deeply saddened to learn of her passing. I wish that I could have been there to reach out.

After all this time, I still don't understand. It is so sad. I would have liked to have had the chance to say goodbye.

We are all sorry you lost someone you cared about, we all have been there. I lost my mom 2 years ago, and it sucks. You have to get over it and move on, dwelling on the past only tears you down. Obviously she was a selfish person to take her own life and not care about how her death would effect the people who loved her. I understand being depressed, beleive me I grew up in harrodsburg but suicide is never the thing to do. Move on Gillian she aint coming back.

Gillian, I truly appreciate you still thinking of my sister. For some reason, I was missing her tonight and happened on this forum. Yes, to an earlier post, suicide is a very selfish act. Paula acknowledged this in her last letter. The pain never ends for those of us left behind. Nor do the questions, confusions, and feelings of guilt. Some days I am so mad I want to scream. Other days I want to cry and hide away. But mostly I follow the path I have chosen, find joy in what life offers, and am honored and glad to have known the best parts of someone who chose to leave us too soon. Thanks for your caring.

Joan, I am so terribly sorry about your loss. I was a friend of Paula's--we traveled from Kentucky to Memphis for Jungian studies together every month for a year in the early 1990's. We share interests in psychology, astrology and the enneagram. She was the most generous friend and mentor to me. Paula talked about you and your son to me all the time on those long drives. If there is ever an opportunity, I would appreciate being able to talk to you. Thank you. My email is mkdelaney2001@yahoo.com.
