"Let's Face the Music and Dance" by Diana Krall
Clear. Succinct. Definitely not a person who has taken leave of their
mental faculties. JUST Donna.
"There may be trouble ahead
But while there's music and moonlight and love and romance
Let's face the music and dance
Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill and while we still have the chance
Let's face the music and dance"

Suicide letter to the authorities
To whom it may concern,
I Donna Deneil Vos (ID 6202240004081) do not wish to participate in the affairs of this world anymore.
I am a state patient at Groote Schuur hospital;… patient number GSH 122 425 606 . Please find my card number in the folder.
I have had suicidal tendencies my whole life. My parents suicided. Please find photo of them.
I have been admitted to Victoria psyche ward for 72 hours observation in 2013.
I have had 2 suicide attempts – one in 1998 and the other in 2004.
This time I have sought professional help. I do not have the courage to shoot, hang, gas or jump. I have tried as best as possible to die peacefully – for my sake and anyone else concerned. I contacted a merchant in a foreign country. I took the risk the internet warned me about. I compromised my powder. I sent a sample to an independent laboratory in a foreign country.
My mood swings have become too severe – even for me. I asked my loving partner of almost 10 years to move out in March last year. He did not want to as he loves me and is concerned for me. There is no history of mental illness in his family and he has had no idea how to deal with it, On several occasions he has called GSH for me to see shrink. They are never available. In 2013, I admitted myself at GSH. I was not allowed in because I ‘wasn’t sick enough’.
