I’ve been away in Spain for a while and it was a shock to come back to the news from Paxil Progress of a Seroxat suicide.

“We have had a tragedy in our paxilprogress family. The post below is from David Singletary, a friend and roomate of criss. From his report, criss took his own life last night. We know the pain and despair he was in from his posting here. I think we can take some comfort in the fact that he found us and had contact with others in paxil withdrawal. Sadly, it took his life.
May he find the peace he so deserved and may his friends and family know that in our short time that we knew him, he touched our hearts.
I’ve quoted the initial posting below:
this is david singletary, criss had been living with me trying to get his life back, he told me he had spoke to a lot of people on this site. i do no know quite how to say this, i am in shock still. but criss left a note asking that i post this for him to say thanks to everyone who spoke to him, yesterday afternoon criss passed away due to a self inflicted gunshot wound.i did not know he had a gun on him, if i did i don’t think i could have stopped him he was twice as big as me and as strong as an ox. he had just went to his dr and they did not want to listen to what he had to say about his own treament. his life had fell apart lately, divorce, job, family, everything he had was gone. i keep asking my self what i could have done for him. criss was the guy everybody wanted to be, he had it all in college, the body, the girls, the football games, man i wanted to be him. but inside little did i know what a tortured person he was , i noticed serious mood changes in criss while he was on paxil, and i watched my best friend walk out my frontdoor into the middle of the street and shoot himself. in loving memory of my best friend criss, david singeltary”
Seroxat is not safe – if you’re taking it or trying to stop taking it, please be careful.
