Found this article in the New York Times this morning called Midlife Suicide Rises, Puzzling Researchers
Among the findings ....
Suicide rate among 45-to-54-year-olds increased nearly 20 percent from 1999 to 2004.
For women 45 to 54, the rate leapt 31 percent and it rose 28.8 percent for women 50 to 54. One doctor suggested a drop in the use of HRT may be to blame.
What are your thoughts? What's behind the rise in suicides? Is it drug use? Lack of drug use? Or do you think it's something else?
