Josh Gracin
-- the American Idol Season 2 finalist who left what appeared to be a suicide note that got cops and family scrambling Thursday -- has checked himself into an inpatient facility and is remorseful over the commotion he caused.

TMZ broke the story ... Josh posted a message on Facebook with a clear message -- he was about to take his life.  The post read in part:  "I loved her for 17 years ... I made mistakes ... I admitted them, told her the truth and she turned her back on me when I needed her help the most."

The post went on:  "Pray for my family as they carry on in this world without me.  Goodbye."

Cops picked Josh up Thursday night and took him to the hospital.  He just released this statement:
   
 "I want to thank you all for your prayers and support.  I take responsibility for my actions and apologize dearly for what I have put my family through.  With the help of my family and friends, I am getting help."

It amazes me how much time white people spend on committing suicides and curling their hat brims. It's about time we put these fools in the projects for a week. Truth.

I will no longer feel sorry for people who live in this country with freedoms others would die for and yet be unhappy. If you live in this country and can't make it, then yes!!! Off yourself because you cannot survive anywhere else in the world. There are children in Rwanda who wish they had your kind of pathetic problems. So, yes! If you're ready to go, BYE!!!!!!

If you are going to commit suicide you are already screwing up your family and friends enough. Definitely unnecessary to place blame on anyone in your suicide letter. Dickead
