please accept my abject apologies. I didn't realize that I was incapable of understanding a question as complex as "Have you ever seriously considered suicide" as a result of clusters.
I terribly sorry that my response, which was one out of 608, destroyed the statistical integrity of this poll for you.
In an attempt to make up for my gaff, I've recalculated the stats, assuming I'd never answered. Instead of 38.8% yes, my abstention would have resulted in 38.9%. The I Just Want to See the Stats category would go from 31.7 to 31.8 and the No category would plummet from 29.4 to 29.3.
I'd like to thank you for your invaluable assistance in correcting my misconception about feelings about suicide. As soon as the holidays are over, I plan to seek out a mental health professional who can help me explore my obvious prediliction for denial of the suicidal tendencies I don't recall ever having.
Just think, until you posted (repeatedly) I thought I was a fairly normal, well-adjusted person who had learned how to deal with clusters without sinking into self-destructive psychobabble crap. I'm so glad you straightened me out.
