    What a terrible selfish act she did to her children. We are truly in an age of selfishness when a mother thinks it is okay to commit suicide, leaving her children bereft of a mother and at the same time telling her children that it is okay when you are suffering to suicide instead of finding solutions. How horrible a person she is. And if anyone even thinks this is okay, you need to look at this and realize that suicide can be considered only when you have no one left behind that will be traumatized and stigmatized by this act. And yes, I know what I am talking about. This woman’s selfish act does not deserve sympathy.

    Skye Rose have you NO HUMANITY! This poor woman I’m sure would have DIED FOR HER KIDS! At the moment you attempt this suicide, your brain is not functioning on all cylinders! Everything is blocked except your pain and YOU JUST WANT IT TO END!
    Been there, done that, A SURVIVOR!

    She is obviously depressed and was probably given prescription anti-depressants – which can have adverse mood impacts and cause suicidal urges/impulses. Possibly her surgery had unintended negative effects on her sight that could have been permanent. Obviously we don’t know all the facts from DML’s new snippets for non-paying readers – but we can assume from others’ statements that this was totally out of character for her. Judgmental attitudes do so much damage to surviving family at a time like this.

    RIP her last video sounded as though she was in a lot of pain I wonder what medication she was given.

    Could this have been an accident? She did not sound like she was suicidal and I don’t think she would’ve gone through this operation it takes three months to heal if she plan on committing suicide. I’d like to know more about this I think it could’ve been an accident or an overdose accident or like someone said maybe some problem with the medication she was given. My sympathies it is a tragic situation for a beautiful young woman did to die and leave a beautiful family behind like this I will not ever understand why she left them

    So sorry for her loss no one ever knows the real pain or obstacles of someone else watching her vision recovery could of been part of it but mostly this beautiful person I would think felt possibly destroyed frighten by not being able to see clearly clearly could of been a mistake if not doctors and family need to listen and be on watch of anything no matter how Much some one complains they are reaching out for help. May god hold her family tight with love and strength during this difficult time.
