When I took the California bar, there was a guy in the room with me who was on his seventh try. Poor guy. (I passed; no idea if he did.) That's nothing, since Maxcy Dean Filer took it 48 times before he passed (and then promptly got suspended for crappy practice). (He died this year.)
Poor Fransisco Solomon Sanchez finally succeeded in committing suicide this week on his (at least) tenth try. Like me, he had been involuntarily hospitalized. Guess it didn't help.
One previous attempt was so serious that he had his legs amputated and used prosthetic legs as a result.
Please think about that the next time someone assures you that suicidality is a temporary state, and people who attempt suicide really want to be rescued.
