### Suicidal gestures are common, and the common forms are overdose and
wrist slashing. Occasionally a gesture ends up badly, if the overdose is
too large and the suicide voice message is listened to too late but still
survivable overdoses are often just gestures. People don't make suicidal
gestures with guns though.
