Brief: Feeling suicidal?

I was feeling really down last night. Da blues had got me good ‘n strong.

I was lonely, confused and deeply depressed.

I decided this was it. Time to take the plunge … time to end it all.

But in one last gasp, one penultimate snatch at a straw, I phoned Lifeline.

I was put through to a call centre in Karachi, Pakistan.

I said I wanted to kill myself. I said I was suicidal. They said: “Can you drive a truck?”
