  • If the suicide was successful, how do you expect a reply here? This is not a seance.
  • Suicide by any cuts are painful after the initial cuts, and every cut after is just as painful as the first...take it from someone with experience... :) GOOD LUCK!! :)
  • Wow, i hope your question is just out of curiosity. If you are thinking about it, try to talk to someone just to let them know what you're feeling. You'd be sursprised how many people have been where you're at if you are indeed thinking about suicide.
  • I have never tried nor would I waste my life ... but many that do ... take drugs or alcohol to find the courage to cut ... I don't believe it's the pain that concerns them ... more the act itself the decision to carry out a suicide is the most painful the cut is the final decision
  • Yes the initial cuts are painful and they probobly will sting for a while. Your basically cutting a big vein in your arm so there's plenty of pain receptors there. ...Uh...You're not planning on doing anything stupid are you?
  • I was a nurse and not only does it HURT like Hell, most do it wrong and live. When it is our time to go, we go. Please Hun, dont think that way.
  • Having a tough time in life Bam? Just asking a question or should we be alarmed? Bam I have lived with a lot of suicide in my family. Its a horrible thing to do to those you love! I too get very depressed b ut after knowing what it does to those left behind you never want to inflict that pain on others.
  • Slitting your wrists won't do it. You're more likely to cut a tendon and lose the uses of your fingers or even your hand. To die by cutting your 'wrists' you have to cut up your arm not across - upwards from elbow to wrist, and you need to cut DEEP! And yes, it hurts like hell! Like your arms are on fire.
  • Suicide by slit wrists is one of the most excruciatingly painful ways to die. Anyone who tells you otherwise, or who says that the pain "fades away" after the first cut, is full of it, or has never experienced it. I slit both my wrists when I was 16 - I wound up with 87 stitches in total - and I can tell you now, it was the WORST pain I have ever experienced. It was like white hot pokers had been rammed up each of my arms, my hands shook uncontrollably, my fingers cramped and seized up into claws - it was disgusting, awful, foul, and excruciating. It is not the glamourous, painless death the movies make it out to be. It is horrendous, and even moreso for the unfortunate person who finds you in that state.
  • IF THE QUETSION IS A JOKE THEN THERE ARE SOME SICK MOFO'S ON HERE IF IT IS SERIOUS THEN NO-ONE SHOULD BE ANSWERING IT EXCEPT WITH SAMARITANS NUMBER
  • You cut yourself. You cut your skin. Cutting your skin hurts. Please don't!
  • YA, it hurts like hell! It's not worth it, just stop thinking that way. And doing it will just hurt the people you love more then it will hurt you! :/
  • Committing suicide means you kill yourself. Sweet pea, I don't think people who've died from suicide are going to log on here and come answer this question. But, if we mean 'filed' suicide, which should have been mentioned in the first place... Depending what you cut with, it can or doesn't hurt. The intial cut is usually the one to break the ice, and then you just freestyle your way through. I don't feel it as painful as the first one, just because I get so into it that I could just keep going. I stop feeling it after a while... I usually use blades, and depending on how shard or how dull from use the blade is, the pain factor varies. When the blade is really very sharp-usually when it's new-it slightly burns, but no more than that. If your blade is dull, kind of like a meat knife with pointy edges, no kidding, it'll hurt more than using something straight & smoothe.

  • Lacerations hurt like crap & they are far from effective. Best way to go is methadone (aka AnnaNic); if you can get it & you have no history of opoid dependancy, 250mg will stop your pulse for ever. Even better, you have about 30 blissful minutes to contemplate why things got so f**ked up & if you're really lucky, someone who cares might chance upon your catatonic ass.
  • Initially, but then I'd guess you don't feel a thing.
  • it burns like moten hot blades take my word for it don't ever tey to find out...
  • Like the song goes: The first cut is the deepest. http://dabble.com/node/9830125
  • the nerve endings on your wrists are extremely sensitive, even if you just get a scratch it can hurt worse than a cut that may be 1/4" deep somewhere else on your body. I have not tried to kill myself by slitting my wrists, however i have cut them once, and though the cuts were not all that deep, it took about 4 months for the stinging to go away. If you cut deep enough to kill yourself, the pain will be almost unbearable (this is coming from somebody who has a really high pain tolerance). The second cut hurts just as bad if not worse than the first.
  • you need to put your hands in water so the blood wont coagulate and keeps flowing so the only thing you will feel is cold the first cut is the one that hurts the most but after a while you wont feel anything so its not as painful as most people think trust me i know how it feels.
  • I've never tried it, but I have it on good authority that it continues to be excruciating... don't read on if you have a weak stomach. -------------------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------- My friend who has tried this explained that even in water, the wounds try to heal themselves, so that one must continue to reopen the wounds, and go for individual veins and arteries. Rather like surgery, only with opposite results. PLEASE DO NOT DO THIS.
  • Bad Idea.
  • The inital cut doesn't hurt as much as the repeated cut you will have to make after. The first cut is the easiest because your skin is smooth but once you break through that first layer your skin gets rough. Instead of cutting smoothly it'll rip through the layers of skin and hurts like a mofo.
  • That's quite a gruesome and macbre way to go, it is painful and bleeding to death is not just like 'going to sleep'.
  • it will be painful for everyone that knows you, for the whole of their lives, each and every time they think of you. I have little respet for people that end their lives, I think they are cowards, however it is their choice after all.
  • yes it is excrutiating pain from the first cut to the last. the entire process is painful. when i was 16 i cut both my wrists. i even cut it the right way truly hoping for death to fall upon my bloodless body, but it did not. the pain was so morbid that i had to scream i had to cry, there was truly no way i could keep quiet. after i lost conciousness my neighbor found me and saved my life. i woke up one more time then i had planned to and i am so greatful for that. i will never forget the pain that streamed through my body during and after the tears to my flesh. i am still recovering from this giant mistake i almost did and the pain i put on the people around me makes me wish for forgivness everyday. all i know is that at that point when you are willing to take your life, you are so low that you cannot see yourself causing others pain by dying but you can see them having pain from your living and you want to take that away for them. it is an experience i would not wish on anyone, not even my worst enemy.
  • i slit my wrist yesterday. it hurts and its a pain in the butt. and i am alive. i do however know i can cut and kill myself which isnt a good thing. because now i want to more than ever. how do you decide you want to live, not live to die? i have 9 stitches.
  • Lets not advertise our suicidal tendencies, shall we?
  • So what is a less painful route?
  • Suicide is never painless
  • I would imagine so...
  • no way of committing suiced is painless, think about the people around you. don't do it!
  • Heroin od is probably the most painless way to go.
  • altho i havent properly slit my wrists, i did once do a cut along my wrist which went down in2 the vein... it's bout i.5 cms, so it wasnt big enuf 2 do much, i just sat nd watched it bleed... but altho it hurt at the beginning, pain is controlled in the brain, so once id been doin it for a little while it stopped hurting. By the end i was just dragging the razor slowly along the cut... no pain.
  • Why? If it hurts won't you do it?
  • There is actually a support group for people who survived jumping off the San Francisco bridge and survived. Every single last one of them reports that they changed their mind at he last moment - while falling.
  • I haven't slit my wrists but I hav cut quite deep in to my arm. It was agony but I keeped doing it 4 over a week. DO NOT DO THAT
  • i slit my wrist earlier today, lost alot of blood, and laid down. i woke up later all clotted up, and in tremendous pain. problem is now i want to finish it. people have tried to talk me out of this in the past, but those who call it a cowards way out, or try to tell you that things will eventually get better, have absolutely no idea what goes on in your head as you contemplate what to do and how to act upon it. i have severe anger issuses and have driven my wife to the point that she stays away for days at a time. cant get help for another month so what do i do? i have cried wolf many times in the past to get her to come around again. so now she doesn't believe that i have really done this to myself, and that i am going to try again when i am done typing this. was trying to find a way to do it correcttly to achieve the out come i want.
  • I've heard it is... I'm still searching for a way on how to die without too much pain. Everything I come up with always turns out that it hurts a lot. Jumping has been on my mind, I have a fear of heights though :/
  • erm... thats a bit of a stupid question - as a child when you fell over - did you hurt when you actually fell? did it magically stop afterwards with all your stings and scrapes? no! of course it will be painful. you have a hole in your wrist!!!!!!!! this stupid question makes me think you are an attention seeking person. "everyone pay attention to me because i'm asking questions about suicide" dumbass.
  • I've thought about doing it many times, but I've got too many ppl that in my life that it would hurt also. I know from a cutters perspective that sometimes the pain of a slice gives you sense of pleasure. I'm not referring to a type of masochistic feeling. For me it's like I punish myself for my flaws and failures. Cutting a vein hurts like hell. To me it's like someone poking a bruise or the feeling you get when you give blood, but to do that down an entire vein would be quite agonizing, though you may get that pleasure feeling. I'd advise against it though because of the people around you. If you hate yourself then love everyone else. It's when you do this that people really show you your worth.
  • Extremely. the first cut is probably the least painful, because you're cutting through new skin. after that you're cutting through layer upon layer of skin and tissue and veins. it's rough, like slowly ripping apart your arm. it's excruciating, i've passed out while cutting my wrist before. believe me, not the way to go.
  • I have a friend who first tried to commit suicide by slitting her wrists. She said it felt like someone was burning her with a blow torch and with each heart beat her head pulsed with excruciating pain as her vision darkened around the edges. She also said she had real trouble slitting the other wrist because she lost control of her hand from cutting the tendons and had to use her mouth to hold the blade to cut the second wrist. Fortunately she was unable to cut the second wrist correctly and was found unconscience by her father. She is fine now but has a huge scar on her left arm where she had 55 stitches and a smaller scar on her left where she had 8.
  • Yes, it is extremely painful. Honest truth, the most painless way to go is by heroin overdose. I've come close to overdosing myself many times. It's quick and you simply fall asleep. Problem is, most overdose before they can even get the needle out of their arm so it can be quite disturbing for the finder. But then again, slit wrists would be quite disturbing as well.
  • I am nearly sixteen, on my iPod sitting on my Granparents guesteoom bed. It is about 1:00 a.m. (early for me), I have a easily flipped open knife in my right lower pocket ( I am wearing cargos, hence the pocket description), and I just read half the answers on here. I am listening to very depessing music, feeling more and more depressed every second. My name Blood Solace does not mean what most people think when I use it on the video game Halo. Rather than the assumption of taking comfort in spilling someone elses blood (on Halo of course), it means to ease my pain by draining my own. I guess you could say that I find some level of pleasure in pain (more emotional than physical, not that I don't enjoy that quite a lot too). Rather than commit suicide I would rather sink deeper and deeper into the dark serene abyss that I have often found to be my reallity so very often. I draw inspiration from my depression and use it for my pencil drawings, my most recent being a slit wrist ( the sad thing is that I submitted it for class credit and nobody had any concerns, not that I would want them to). I have discussed how I feel with my friends (or as close as they get to friends at any rate), and they have all told me not to do anything and that I have people that love me, which I do. I would never "probably" commit suicide, because I know my mom being very attatxhed to me would follow soon after. When it comes to a method, even with the pain, I would lean towards slitting my wrists. Not because I think it painless but because it seems the most romantic if that doesn't sound too odd. My iPod wallpaper is I'd a beautiful woman with blood running over her lips, captioned "I Love You Like a Vampire Loves Blood". I have another very similar captioned "Life And Death". I don't like gory picture, just artistic depictions of vampires or people who look depressed like I am. I am a boy if you haven't figures that one out for yourself. My favorite series of books is the " Twilight" series, and when she felt dead and like a zombie, I did too. I have a very hard time crying and this book made me come close at times. Ever since my grandmother on my mom's side (who I was very close with) passed away, I have learned to internalize everything. I hope that someone reads this who feels somewhat the same. If you do feel free to email me at abesmoothie@gmail.com. I don't feel I can even talk to my mom anymore who I used to be very close to. I have distanced myself from everyone pretty much. My mom used to cut herself until I made her promise not to. She is the one who told me that to kill yourself you have to slit wrists vertically, she didn't know I was depressed obviously. She said when she was younger she accidentally slit to deep and saw her vein right below the surface. I wish I could go cliff diving and be reckless. Not to die but to feel free and let things briefly drift away into nothingness, without the use of drugs ( which I will never use). I may or may not cut tonight. I don't know of this will ever be read. I have writtne several journal entries with the intention posting them but never have. I don't belong at school. I was the top of my math class last year and a very good student, and I will continue to be. But for what? Nothing I do will ever make a significant difference, even if I were to stop global warming or make a new computer brand, nothing will matter. Is there life after death, there is no way to be sure but even of there is I am one among one-hundred billion. And that one-hundred billion are one of possibly infinite stars and galaxies. The only reason other than family that I have to want to live is to find love. Love which I long for every day that I walk the halls of my school, or the cars of the train that I took to get to West Virginia from Washinton State to see my grandparents. And now I sit here on the bed. Alone and in agony every day until I meet that someone to make me feel like I have reason to exist. I realize I am young but I can't shake the need for someone to talk to, to kiss, to have fall asleep on my shoulder on the bus. Or to fall asleep on my chest. Only to sleep, the time when people are most vulnerable. Somone to be vulnerable with. Someone who will make it feel alright. And so I leave this an open message for anyone to read. Invulnerable, to some degree but not caring even if it is harshly critiqued. When death is something you enjoy thinking about on a regular basis , you lose your fears and you cease to worry about what other people think.
  • I dropped a kitchen knife on my left wrist by accident and it slashed a vein. The cut itself didn't hurt, but what was happening was absolutely terrible. I couldn't breathe, my head felt like it was going to explode, my vision was blurry, and I couldn't even stand up. It feels just like you'd expect it to feel: it feels like you're losing blood and you're dying. Duh. I was rushed to the hospital where I had to stay the night and get stitches. It's really not worth it.
  • Suicide by Slit wrists is an extremely painful thing, I have been in this situation (and was admitted to a mental hospital for attempted suicide) But this really is not the way to go. I am a masochist, which means I delight when I am in pain, but there is a difference in liking pain and stupidity. If you really want to commit suicide, then it should be with a gun, a very quick and relativly easy to complete way to die ( but can be slightly messy; I have seen firsthand the results of a gunshot wound as well as a stabbing wound. both were not very clean and looked painful :) but in the long run, if you really want to die, think about this: what you are searching for is relief, and release. both of which are feelings that you must be alive to fully appreciate. just say you'll do it later and you should eventually stop thinking about it, or start anew and fresh. I know. I did.
  • People who slit their wrists don't usually die, it's a cry for help. So go get it. Not to be rude, but answer bag is not the place to get the answers you need.
  • i have no idea but i assume that is hurts alot. I used to cut myself because i just wanted to get my mind off of how horrible i was feeling and how awful my life was, but i cut my legs so i dont know. All i know is that cutting is really bad because i still have scars and all they do is remind you of the horrible times you've experienced, i now regret what i did.
  • I slit my wrist 10 days ago, i would have succeded but some one unexpectedly showed up, im 24, i have almost 100 stitches inside and 18 staples outside, im supposed to get my staples out today, does anyone know if it will hurt?
  • is suicide by slit wist painful? with enough alcohol no it is not. when i wanted to end it, i was alone at home and i drank two glasses of water to plump my veins, got my trusty swiss army knife and laid down on the couch with a 5th of rum and a case of red bull and downed them in half an hour. then using the scissors i slowly pinched the skin till it broke, and then it was easy just cut deeper and deeper finally i hit a huge vein and the blood was uncontrollable, so i moved on to the other arm and made a small snip when my vision bleared and i figured that the one was enough. half awake i herd voices and beeping. i was in a hospital, my mother had come home early and found me. well after that i was put in a mental hospital for two months were i tried three more times to die and was stopped. i am out now and coping, the feeling are still there, i think i will always have them. but for now its ok. well i have talked enough so if you take nothing else from me take this if you what to do die. buy a gun!
  • The cardiovascular system is such that it has many reflexes and responses that serve to divert blood away from a severed artery in order to sustain a viable blood pressure. They actually say it is quite difficult to correctly perform the act. Surprisingly! Probably better for the sake of your life. Though, if you're serious, and not bullshitting, then I'm sure you'll think otherwise. Simply put: painful and not as straight forward! A lot of mess, but without the results, most likely!
  • uum hi i know 2 ppl who comited suicide and i seen the pain it causes one of them his mother died the year after he commited suicide and she was verry healthy his brother turned into a alchoholic and has thought about suicide too so plz think about it ppl its not just u u cud be killing

  • yes, cutting wrists hurt, but its 1 of the only things that fades my depression/anger. its hard when the person u love dumps u without a second thought for a guy who lives half way around the world, made me mad, sad, depressed, straight away i went to my trusty knife to take out all these emotions on my already heavly scared wrists, iv tryed getting rid of these feelings through other ways but those hardly work. if u think im mental, need help or anything else that every1 else says, like im a coward whos too afraid 2 live life i say kindly shut the fuck up! u dont no shit that i go through, nor do u no the lives of the other people who do it, so dont fuken say it 2 them, let them do wat they want and accept them 4 who they r not 4 wat they fuken do
  • No it feels good. wtf kinda question is this!?!
  • It does hurt, but it's more like a hot throbbing feeling than anything. I attempted and failed. When I did, I didn't lose enough blood to die, but it did put me to sleep, and I woke up in a disugting mess, then i puked. There's to much beauty in the world to do that, yeah, there's shit, but the moments of beauty is worth it.
  • I dunno. But if I hit my head repeatedly on a brick wall until I'm senseless, will I finally feel OK about myself as just another hapless bastard wandering around the planet trying to make some sense of things? My message here? = Join the crowd, pal. Find something you like in life and go do it sometimes. Get excited about it, what-the-f8ck-ever it is! Knock yer socks off, guy! Or not. In any case, good luck to you.
  • I doubt it...but it would be incredibly painful for everyone you left behind.
  • WHAT'S THE HURRY GUYS? WE ALL GONNA GET THERE SOME DAY. SO WHY DONT WE JUST FORGET ABOUT SOMETHING THAT'S INEVITABLE AND CONCENTRATE ON SOMETHING MORE CONSTRUCTIVE.
  • First, ppl who say that suicide is the cowards way out are idiots. It takes a lot of guts to face that moment when you are about to go thru a door knowing there is no turning back. People who commit or contemplate suicide do so because their lives have become more painful or abhorrent than the alternative. I have attempted suicide and it is not an easy thing to do. I took 68 sleeping pills and tried to rig a container to go over my head so that I would be asleep when my air gave out and I (hopefully) smothered. Unfortunately, 68 over-the-counter sleeping pills are not enough to keep you asleep while you run out of oxygen. Before reading the replies on slit wrists I had considered that as one alternative for my next attempt. Now I think I will either try asphyxiation by helium (see the book The Peaceful Pill) or go the messy way and use a shotgun. The only thing with a shotgun is that I'm afraid some kid will find the body and it'll scar him for life...
  • Yes. It hurts when you 1st do it It continues to hurt after the initial cut but what do you expect? Expect it to just stop hurting? You are cutting through your own skin, and your doing it deep enough to hit an artery. Of course its going to hurt.
  • Yes , you will slowly watch a small stream of venous blood, since it is VERY difficult to cut your wrists below ligament / bone to reach a large artery. This would be difficult for even an experienced surgeon. Unforgettable experience for you and those unknown to you that still love you. Ask your doctor for some Medication to end your pain instead, this is easier.
  • It didn't hurt when i did it- but i was scared shitless. it was an accident-i never meant to go that deep. it hurts after, 2 minutes after or so- your hands get very cold and you shake horribly. but for anyone who is contemplating suicide, it's bullshit. No matter how insignificant you find your life to be, no matter how much you think you can't go on, it's not worth it. It was almost a year ago when i did it. I was 13. It will inevitably be weaved into my memory for the rest of my life, which optimistically WON'T be cut short by my own doing. It is't worth it.
  • I would probably say it hurts more than not, wouldn't you? Let's try to keep the suicide down to a minimum shall we? From what I have gathered, it is more than likely not good times.
  • HI THERE I live in New Zealand I have been suicidal. I am 20 years old. I have hated every job I have had! I don't want to work until I am 65 which is the retirement age. My grandad retired a few years ago and he is 67. He said to me that it took at hell of a long time to reach retirement. I am now saying to myself fuck I don't wanna go through all that drama working my nut off till I turn 65, hell by then the retirement age will be 75! People reckon when you retire you are free and can do what ever you want, Wrong. My grandad is almost 70 and he doesn't have energy anymore. He wants to travel the world etc but he doesn't have the energy because he's too old! YEAH LIFE IS SO GOOD YOU BASICALLY WORK TILL YOU DIE BECAUSE WHEN YOU RETIRE YOU ARE TOO OLD TO DO THE THINGS YOU WANT, YOU JUST WANNA REST ALL THE TIME BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE THE ENERGY If I have to work and go through the pain trying to make a living till I die like my grandad, then I am defintiely gonna kill myself soon, just trying to figure out how to do it!
  • The HONEST answer is yes and no. The actual cutting part does hurt but once you've cut yourself you don't feel much of anything. Bleeding doesn't hurt. Now if you survive, like I did, I can tell you healing hurts and if you cut the nerve the nerve damage may cause pain but for the most part it's not that painful.
  • Never tried it because everyone has a spiritual job to do here on earth. Suicide is a cop out and you will only have to come back and do it again. It is better to do your job no matter how boring some of the steps seem. Learn as much as you can so that you will be able to meet each day's challenge. Then when it is time to graduate from this earthly kindergarten, you will do so with love and honor.
  • I've tried that before and it hurts like hell ten fold! but that was a few years ago.
  • I just wish that you could go to your doctor, ask for a single pill that would kill you and take it. Just go to sleep and die. Your life is a choice, and after being severely clincally depressed for almost 6 years, you just want a nice pieceful way out, but I am becoming frustrated that I cannot obtain a surefire way, or else I'd be loooooooong gone!
  • Suside by slitting your wrist is a way to express how you feel. I do it a lot. The pain is is horrid, but you do get over the pain after a few months to a year. Unless you like the pain then you will try it different ways to get the pain to come back. <3
  • I have had a knife through my hand, and it is painful for quite a while. Even the numbing shots they gave me while stitching it up didn't get rid of the pain completely. I'd have to imagine that a deep enough cut to actually work for suicide would be a lot like that.
  • Yes it is painful for everyone that you leave behind. Don't do it, GET HELP!!!
  • Every day of my life i think about killing myself, and how to do it. i have about fourteen scars on my arm right now, and every day just want to do it more. i was hospitalized for about 4 weeks, and to me it made it much worse. yesterday, i reopened one of my cuts, and just watched the blood roll down my arm...why do i think this way? and when people say get help..how? its not that easy...i try to cut the right way, but it just never seems to work...if anyone has answers that would be great
  • Yes, it absolutely is. Regardless if the cuts are small, large, deep or small.
  • probably just a bit buddy
  • Pain can be avoided, I'm not going to lie. Alcohol as always helps, however this is not a sure fire way. Freezing your forearms in ice for one - two hours is the key to success here. It becomes so numb that one can barely feel a a butcher's knife, let alone a razor blade. Cutting from the top of the forearm to the tip of the wrists is desired, at about 1cm deep. Personally, I would and will refuse to use the ice, as I would like to know that I am control. The pain is something I induced and nothing will take that away from me. I hope this helps. With the above in mind, suicide is a serious problem, and should not be blah blah blah. You've heard all of this before. If you've come this far you are either going to follow through, or think the better of it. No one can make this decision for you. If you've had enough and honestly think it will not get better, than by all means, end it all now. Contentment awaits.
  • You know, the only person qualified to truthfully answer this question.... wouldn't be able to.
  • Hell yes it hurts. I've sliced open my legs, thighs, hands, neck, arms, and wrists. I would have to say that SCRATCHES I've gotten on my neck and wrists hurt worse than any other cuts I've had. And I have extremely high pain tolerance, seeing as how many people say they were screaming and crying, and I winced a bit when I sliced really deep. It hurts, and it's not worth it. If there's no one there to save you, you'll die with regret. You will want to take it back as you slip away. And if you do survive, it will never leave you. It doesn't fix anything. And, still, even today, I want to do it again, but remember the regret and shame that came from it. And I don't mean this with any irony at all, it will be the WORST choice you make in your life. because, even after everything is dead and gone, your life is the one thing that you'll have left. Don't give it away.
  • Wouldn't know I would probably hang myself though. How many people fail to hang themselves correctly and it ends up gruesome?
  • I lost my soul mate tonight. just carved a heart into my wrist , I am to cowardly to actually kill myself. I think my kids would be better off without me , I'm heartbroken and raw but I know no woman is worth this anguish . Somebody pray for me because I want to wake up in the morning but tonight I want to die.
  • Please do not share your "feel bad for me" stories with other people who are seriously contemplating suicide. You sound like an idiot when you say that you would prefer to kill yourself by cutting your wrists because it sounds "romantic." This only shows that you don't really want to kill yourself, but merely want attention from other people, who you would like to feel sorry for you. Some people really are depressed. Those people who purposefully make themselves feel depressed, as though it is some king of fad, piss me off so damn much. There are lots of people out there who really are depressed and suicidal, and I can guarantee you, they don't go around telling other people just to get sympathy. Hey vampire fucker, needing attention does not warrant you the right to go around pretending like you are some fucking depressed vampire who likes to fuck with blood. Get a fucking life. If feeling depressed is obviously a negative feeling, then why would you indulge it so much by acting like an "emo" faggot. To all those people who really are depressed and feel like committing suicide, please do no listen to these fucking emo kids who think its cool to cut their wrists. They think slitting your wrists is a fad or something...fucking ridiculous. Suicide is a tempting action for those who feel hopeless and alone, but resist it. Its not the answer. I have had two minor suicide attempts, and all they achieve is more sadness and discomfort. Keep on going. Get help. But whatever you do, don't go through with it.
  • I have attempted Suicide on many occasions all differant ways and no matter what i seemed to do someone caught me in time or found out and prevented it. I live my life in misery. Lonliness and depression eat away at me and i watch those i love suffer and wither away like fallen leaves from a tree. I have so many scars and horrible memories from trying to take my life. But just recently I met a girl whose been through alot just as i have. She is the most amazing person ive ever met. Shes been through what i have and then some. Most recently shes been fighting peritoneal mesothelioma. Shes just 17 and she has this terminal illness. I've fallen in love with her and shes changed me for the better. But i cannot be with her as shes in love with someone else. My depression seems to get worse when shes not around and yes i contemplate slitting my wrists all the time. My last failed attempt was at it was just horrible and the pain was unbarable. I do think about doing so again but Im too much of a pussy to do so. And i cant for if i go through with it i will hurt the woman i love and the hell she would have to face from doing so i cannot allow. So i sit and linger in my void of nothingness wishing i had something that i cannot. I'll be 22 in november. I've been suicidal for 15 yrs. the man who raised me commited suicide 5 yrs ago and im still tore up on that. If your thinking your life is as low as it gets or think its just gonna keep getting worse Please think about those who know you. You WILL hurt them and they WILL miss you when your gone. Even if they say they wont or think they would never. I know for a fact as i was once just like them. So please Seek help if ou are suicidal. Suicide is not the answer to anything and once you take that leap, you cannot go back. I hope this helps someone =/ Perhaps my love will love me back at some point. But if i'd kill myself neither of us would ever know...

  • When cutting your wrists, it is very painful during the cutting and after. As an ex cutter, i have to say that not only is the cut painful at first and physically, but you are mentally scarred for the rest of your life. If you are planning on cutting, stop and think about your life before you hurt yourself. More people than just you can get hurt by it. Take it from someone who has been there and back.
  • Life is not a toy, you either have a 50 50 chance to survive , you dont play with it . You mind may be filled with who knows , i know myself being depressed would never think about commiting suicide, life goes on , and i know now , after my father commited suicide that i wouldnt dream of hurting people around , sure there is the self loathing, but i can live with that , it doesnt bother me that much anymore. i know im loved. but i dont know why , but that dosnt mean you have to be so selfish as to kill yourself. i play piano, it calms my nerves, and takes me somewere i would rather be, somewere not on this earth , when i play piano, i am happy, i am actually serene and happy , happiness is real, you just have to find it .
  • OMG, what a drama queen. If I were you I'd commit suicide just to get away from myself
  • Just how can someone who has done this, be here to answer this? Just think about it. Just my "guess" tho. I'll bet those who have done it, now wish they hadn't.
  • Of fucking course. ----- I'm still trying to figure out if this is a serious question. What would make you think it wouldn't hurt? Unless you're on PCP, it would hurt like hell and you'd immediately regret doing it.
  • i just think ur all sad sad ppl if u need to ask about suicide and if it hurts and my daddy died 20 or more years ago get the fuck over it go out live ur life and fuckin enjoy it!!!! aaaaahhhhh im sad coz i have no friends well heres an idead make sum fuckin friends go out there and find ppl who like you the worlds is a big big place, theres bound to be one person out there that would like to talk with you. i can get a gf then go pay a hoocker some even specialise in the gf experiance now days there is no excuse for ending your life and furthermore no reason to be here talking about it thats what ur blog is for or your shrink if ur a middle classed emo with more money than sence. i may sound bitter but ppl like you make me sick there are others out there who live a hard life and they push on thats the difference between someone who wants to live and someone who wants to die. men with cancer, aids, sickle cell, limphodima and lots of nasty stuff that make you wish you were dead and even they push on with a fake smile on there face i think if you crawl through shit all your life and you keep on for as long as the trail go's till you come out on the other side batterd, beaten and realising that the air is sweater, the food is better and the ppl are not what they appeard to be when u had all the shit in your face. get the fuck over it and do what it takes to be happy again and if you were never happy then take a long hard look at all the things arround you and realise what makes u feel this way and cut it loose if u dont know then ur probly bipolar and need some meds. i realy can get over this question and all the dumbass answers out there. and some of u attention seeking pricks, u pieces of dirt u scum little more than leaches and cancers u make the idea of suicide a glam one u all deserve to live a hard and deoressing life till u die of old age and i hope all ur attempts at killin urselfs all go wrong and u end up living the life you were given till the very very end, i hope you outlive your children so the pain of what u feel and the death of all those arround you eat you alive. fuckin scum. oh and jeannie what ever u go through in life killin urself is not the answer.
  • Sure it is. All cuts are painful. And if you don't do it right, you leave those behind with a vegetable or injuries that obligate others. There are other options than suicide. +4
  • it is excruciatingly painful. it burns like you would not believe. and if anyone tells you it fades or that you just slip away, its bull. your body will try to fight for you to survive. it was the most painful experience i have ever been through...but it has not stopped me trying suicide. but dont believe that shit about falling asleep cos its just not true.
  • I don't say this to encourage anyone, just that I was surpised by your answer. I cut my wrist by mistake and a lot of blood came out, I did cut my artery and tendon, my wrist was therefor, numb. I told someone to drive me to the hospital than started drifting, I was losing consciousness. It was not painful and I felt like I was dosing, almost felt like an out of body experience.
  • I once tried to commit suicide by hanging myself, I'm gay my family didn't know about it at the time and I felt totally helpless.I felt people would judge me and was worried about how my family would react hearing that I'm gay. To top it off I was having problems in my relationship with my partner, we would argue about the stupidest issues and or problems, I felt I was never appreciated for anything I had done or could ever do- I had just lost my job and bills were piled up!! One afternoon after a night of arguing and without having slept (mind you at this point I felt worthless)I decided I was going to take my life, so I got a stool and secured a thick Leather belt (my boyfriends) up to and around a little square opening that leads to my attic. (during all the preparation I was crying my eyes out). "So all is decided I feel like a piece of shit and feel my life has fallen apart I'm gonna do it, gonna end my life"- what I said to myself before I climbed onto the washer, put my head through the loop, around my neck, and stepped off...urg..breathe..silence... Birds chirped..blood rushing to head, feeling my eyes starting to bulge and nose is bleeding, "I'm fading" I tell myself,"its over"- just as I register what I told myself, my mother fills my mind and I begin to cry, "I'm getting rid of the pain mom" I tell myself.. Blood running, capillary vessels are bursting and vision is off and on.. I hear my heart pounding... At this point I'm terrified,"I NEED HELP"- "its taking too long- I must have done something wrong."PAIN!! "Must have done something wrong".. My body starts ceasing- for what reason I don't know, I mean I'm shaking uncontrollably now. Just as I feel I'm about to slip out, I hear... SNAP!! Feel my body fall. I'm totally unable to control any motor functions at that point and hit the floor, I remember feeling almost cold and upon making contact with the floor where my blood had been flowing it was still warm(weird feeling) almost felt like (how I believe atleast) people feel after being murdered or hurt really badly, Anyway, for some reason the doctors at the hospital I was admitted to told me that if it hadn't been for the ceases of my body I wouldn't be here right now, And for whatever reason my body defended itself from my mind and I'm so truly greatful to be here now its such a beautiful thing-life-cherish it we must, take it for granted we shouldn't.. For you may be the person contimplating suicide but you might just succeed and not get a second chance as I... Always remember- "things will get better" and nothing, nor no one is worth dying over, you're worth way to much and I'm sure your family feels that way about you even more so, take it from me I'm a true testament to the fact that no matter how much you may think you want to end your life- once you take that final step and there's no turning back, chances are you're going to regret pulling that trigger, making that slit, taking those pills, or poisoning yourself- but how would anyone know you wanted to be saved unless you had talked with someone, I'm willing to bet more than half of the poor souls who have succeed in ending their lives, felt exactly how I did but it was too late. I now am enjoying life to the fullest extent and everything, as everybody said it would got better.. Hang in there and remember you were put on this earth for a reason and committing suicide is most definitely not one of those reasons.
  • If someone knows the answer to that they wouldn't be here to answer the question. Suicide does mean killing ones self doesn't it.
  • don't slit horizontal but vertical from wrist to bend in elbow otherwise you just want attention. i would suggest you seek offline people that can really help you at this point. i guess you did something since you were last seen 7.4.08 and this was ask 3.14.08 . i hope you found what you were looking for if you come back to ab you have this as a reminder of how things can turn on a dime.
  • Why do you care? If your gonna end your life, at least feel the last of it. When you feel pain, you feel life, so you'll be living more than ever just before dying. If you were to actually do that... you wouldn't ask
