Book of Suicide Notes
About this deal
Teens in a psych ward populate a novel that overcomes a predictable beginning to make a powerful emotional impact. Regaining consciousness after an aborted suicide attempt, the 15-year-old narrator thinks his parents have “overreacted” by placing him in a 45-day program in the “nuthouse” (“you know, where they keep the people who have sixteen imaginary friends living in their heads”). Readers might need patience as Jeff, the protagonist, goes through a period of denial, delivering sarcastic answers to his shrink, Dr. Katzrupus (Jeff refers to him as “Cat Poop”) and holding himself aloof from the four other patients. But as Jeff begins to form relationships with these teens, Ford's ( Alec Baldwin Doesn't Love Me Ford's adequate if overbusy latest begins with the body of sheriff Daniel McCloud, who went missing seven years ago, discovered buried in a box in the woods. As the investigation by the current Continue reading » If there are two or more neutral words in the triad, we do not consider the triad as being either balanced or unbalanced. Many more studies have been done since Shneidman found his first set of notes, and much more is now known about the suicidal mind, but in many cases, it still remains a mystery.

Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can't go through another of those terrible times. And I shan't recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can't concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don't think two people could have been happier 'til this terrible disease came. I can't fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work. And you will I know. You see I can't even write this properly. I can't read. What I want to say is I owe all the happiness of my life to you. You have been entirely patient with me and incredibly good. I want to say that – everybody knows it. If anybody could have saved me it would have been you. Everything has gone from me but the certainty of your goodness. I can't go on spoiling your life any longer. I don't think two people could have been happier than we have been. V.”
We explore how triad frequency and degree of balance (DoB) in both the CO and FA networks differ from random expectation when sequential structure or affective structure is disrupted, respectively. The first comparison is obtained by configuration models randomising network structure but keeping fixed the degree of individual words. The second comparison is obtained by label-shuffling, which altered the location and local degree of words of different valence while keeping the empirical structure fixed. In Fig. 2b we present a toy example of the null models. Language guarantees an expression of people’s perceptions through semantic content and emotions. Semantic frame theory 19 indicates that the meaning attributed by people to a given concept can be reconstructed by observing the relationships and conceptual associations attributed to that concept in text or speech. Words in a given semantic frame elicit different combinations of emotions, i.e. emotional profiles, which characterize the emotional content of a text. You never can tell, though, with suicide notes, can you? In the planetary aggregate of all life, there are many more suicide notes than there are suicides. They're like poems in that respect, suicide notes: nearly everyone tries their hand at them some time, with or without the talent. We all write them in our heads. Usually the note is the thing. You complete it, and then resume your time travel. It is the note and not the life that is cancelled out. Or the other way round. Or death. You never can tell, though, can you, with suicide notes.” Unlike several well-known studies of semantic networks 26, 27 based on semantic associations stored in lexical databases, in our approach networks of associations are extracted directly from raw texts as written down by individual people. As such it can be seen as an extension of map analysis, as used by Carley 28, 29, enriched with: (i) link extraction and analysis based on modern natural language processing and network science metrics, (ii) additional cognitive data about affect patterns used in synergy with network structure, and (iii) linguistic benchmarks relying on recent datasets of conceptual associations (namely, free associations, see next section). These three points represent key ways in which we build upon and extend previous methods.

The formal study of suicide notes started with a collection of 721 discovered at a coroner's office, written by people ranging from age 13-96.Its so hard to talk when you want to kill yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” In the case of suicide, people think that no fight was involved they merely think that the person couldn't take it and felt weak. They forget all the mental struggles the person faced because the were invisible and sometimes unspoken and unexposed to anyone. This attitude of society is wrong.” The author of 100 Questions & Answers About AIDS effectively balances objective information about AIDS with accounts of individual experiences with AIDS and HIV to provide a helpful introductory look Continue reading »
