Newspaper Article

January 17th, 2013 at 08:42 am

I need to stop reading the news.

http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Mone...

This doctor and her husband apparently committed suicide over money problems.

Some facts from the article:
They drove up in a Mercedes.
They paid $1100 cash for the hotel room.
Her clinic has now been taken over by someone else.

So, they had significant debt, I would assume, and apparently decided to kill themselves instead of facing the problem and trying to solve it. The fact that someone else has taken over the clinic tells me it was or could have been profitable.
I don't understand why they couldn't make the sacrifice to buckle down. Were they unable to accept a lowering of their lifestyle?

I really don't understand why anyone would commit suicide over money.

    That is really depressing. Still, as I read on another blog, it is very easy for a doctor (or other professional) to make several hundred thousand dollars per year, and spend several hundred thousand more than that. It just leads to an unsustainable lifestyle, but you would think that people would be smart enough to see that there is some insurance of a way out of those kinds of problems! Awful.
