Updated again – I’m back, was: Now it is time to say good night

Update 29/12

I got out of hospital last night and have been asleep since then. I managed to avoid a trip to the loony bin – result!

I’m really touched by all of your kind words – it makes it a lot harder to hate myself when so many people obviously don’t. Many thanks.

I shall try to resume normal service as soon as I can.

In his suicide note the Polish novelist Jerzy Kosinski tells us:

I am going to put myself to sleep now for a bit longer than usual. Call the time Eternity

That is more erudite than I can manage. Goodbye.

Update! – David is in hospital following a thankfully unsuccessful suicide attempt last night. He is expected to make a full recovery, but will undoubtedly be out of action for some days. Please don’t hesitate to post a comment or send him an e-mail if you want to send him a message.

I will update this post when I have more news. /Daniel
