Failed suicide attempt with non-life threatening injures, huh?

Pretty poor effort, really.

A cry for help? Hope she gets counseling and medication if appropriate.

I once found a guy with a knife protruding from his chest. I called an ambulance but the police arrived first and treated me like crap. I don't know whether he lived or died but fortunately said he had done it to himself

Yep, hence the reason why people refrain to report crimes in Japan because the police either take up your day or interrogate you as if you are the suspect.

But you may have saved the man’s life and sleep well as a good man.

I guess by trying to do herself in with a knife, instead of jumping off a building or into a train would saver her family a cleaning bill!

Really? Horrible attitude and total lack of empathy. Hopefully you never had to be in a place mentally where you think the only solution to your problems is to attempt suicide.
