No to the bridge option

Every day I have a few moments of terror. Less than a couple of minutes worth at the moment, normally coming in 10 to 30 second chunks. Often caused by the sound of a telephone ringing somewhere, or at the point the enormity of bankruptcy comes home to me yet again. I'm coping, but in those few moments each day I can see why debt is one of the largest causes of suicide in this country, because in those few seconds I can truly understand how jumping off a bridge might just seem a plausible solution.
