Cynthia Lee, 23

The world's most popular social media website has once again become the place where people air their suicidal thoughts.

23-year-old Cynthia Lee committed suicide on Monday. But before she killed herself with her grandfather's shotgun, Lee posted a farewell note on her Facebook page.

Lee wrote, " I can't handle this **** anymore", telling her late mother that she was coming to see her. She was reportedly having difficulty dealing with the loss of her mother who passed away a few years ago.

The mother of three children, the oldest just five years old, was found by Gladstone, Michigan police around 2pm Monday afternoon after reports of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
