  • Definitly... Many times... the thought of distressing my family that much stopped me several times. I couldnt put them thru that kind of grief. I think suicide is very selfish, your only thinking of yourself and not of how the world would be turned upside down in the lives of everyone that knows and loves you...including pets. My dog gets depressed when I leave just for the day!
  • Yes.. I went through a period in my life where I wasn't sleeping well, and things at home were bad, I had been on several anti-depressants, I didn't feel like anything was helping.. So i attempted suicide, My husband thankfully had me institutionalized. There I realized that I had too much to live for.. I hope I never feel that way again. Luckily, the doctors there found out that I was BiPolar and they have me on medications for that disorder, instead of just treating me for depression. It turns out that Anti-depressants can cause suicidal tendencies in some people.
  • ya al the time im always depressed and i always cut can u help me?
  • i have many times and have tried, sometimes my thoughts cant cope with my opinions being controdicted by myself, i could be fine one minute and the next im in a dark place....i think people like me our selfish and put the guilt on the ones closest to them.its cruel.....but people dont understand that when your mind is in the dark and your soul has no hope, you dont think about your consequences and the ones you love. The mind is a beautiful place but like evrything it isnt perfect.....stevie xxx
  • Yes. I've thought about different ways...ruled some out. If I do it, I want it to look like an accident so it won't be so painful for my mom....just an accident.
  • yes. all the time. i want to do it, but i cannot be so thoughtless to my partner. however, where is the justice when they have to put up with a miserable ba****d like me all the time, telling me they feel like im withdrawing from them - I already have. I'm deciding this christmas, either going to a counsellor or going to do it. there is one woman who i think tries to help me. but then i dont think she believes me. i dont blame her. i told her something that it took everything i had to tell her and im sure she doesnt believe me.
  • I was talking like a drunk (as a drunk) to someone about this tonite, and we are both in the same situation. we both WANT to do it, but there is one person we love too much and cant do this to them. perhaps things will progress until I dont even care about that person so i can actually do it. I dont care at all about sympathy, i thought about seeing a counselor but i dont care enough about anything to even want to get better, i just want nothin else to prevent me from doing it. please dont bother commenting with your self righteous religious messages. I dont care if it is immoral, or sacrilege.
  • I feel like i'm allready dead, no feelings no emotions, dead or alive no difference here.
  • Many times, tried it too. Doesn't work for me. Life and death doesn't work for me ironic isn't it?
  • never. Couldnt imagine ever being in that position.
  • I tried two years ago, but I was "saved", meaning someone found me and i got rushed to the hospital. The only thing I regret is that it failed.
  • life is hard, and im a teenager. i've been contemplating just simply ending it all snse i was eight. but i figure now as hard as things are, there is always something worth living til at least tomarrow, but i am in no way a depressed person.
  • Very often everyday when I was in the pit of my depression. But now only maybe a few times when I'm really sad- you have to understand, my life relly sucks and, believe me, depression is hard to cure and is like a 2headed snake- you think you feeling better and then- your thinking about death. Again. Have you?- obviously, right?
  • Contemplated; didn't want to disappoint my supporters. Attempted; Someone called 911.
  • well, when I was pressured from my religion to change myself(become str8), when I couldnt do it, I contmplated. I didnt when I realized how stupid I was, and then came to my senses, and left christianity. Atheism, and my awakened logic saved my life.
  • My kids mainly. Also my friends that were being there for me threw the depression. They worked hard and sacrificed. I didn't want to let them down. Even tho I felt less then what they were claming me to be.
  • Yes, and because of my kids, they have suffered enough at the hands of my ex. They do not deserve more pain.
  • I've thought about suicide in the philosophical context (absurdism, existentialism, etc). But I've never contemplated committing it. Whatever you're going through will pass, this applies to sad times and happy times. Remove yourself from your current situation and look at the big picture. If the big picture is ugly, look even further away.
  • I didnt want to embarrass my wife and children by my weak attitude toward mundane problems. I realized that while suicide solved my problems, it created many more for those I would leave behind. I wasnt sure how I would be treated by those on the other side. Is death by cancer considered more rewarding than releasing all the blood out of my body?
  • I did try to go through with it. It was just too painful trying to admit to myself that I was gay. I wanted so much to be straight and that wasn't happening...so I tried it..but someone intervened and in the hospital they saved my life.
  • yes I have many times
  • people who commit suicide or who THINK of it are fucking dumb. you have a chance to live and enjoy you life! what about the people with cancer ? that dont want to die BUT they are forced to, they have no choice. you have a choice.
  • I stopped myself. Since then i try my best so stop others and ive saved three that i know of which gives me a reason to be here
  • yes, all the time. what stopped me? the tiny morsel of hope that by some chance, i'll feel happiness again.
  • Yes. It's this little..Not going out like that, not gonna show that much weakness side of me..Never been good at quiting even if its something I should quit..LOL
  • Can't say I ever had. Stopped other people from it though! One of the things i'm most proud of in my 24 years o' existance =)
  • When I was around 18 or so I thought of it, because I was very sad. I thought I would punish those around me, because they didn't even seem to notice, and did nothing to help me. The only thing that stopped me was it didn't work. I sprayed a closet with Raid and closed the door, but nothing happened. I just went on with life as before, until my son was born, about a year later, and he was such a wonderful baby, I decided I would change my life and be the best mother ever.
  • Many times. Most of the time, hope stops me (a really ragged, tiny sort of hope, but hope nevertheless), or I feel sorry for the people who actually like me, or I just get so depressed that I can't even make myself get up to get anything to kill myself with. I did try one time, but as you see, I'm alive...
  • Most people who commit suicide are extremely depressed. They usually cannot simply stop feeling depressed by "looking at the big picture" or by reading Chicken Soup for the Soul. People who are afflicted by this simple cannot think clearly and logic or clinches are basically ineffective. If you are feeling suicidal the first thing to do is tell someone. If you have no one to talk to try a crisis hot line, such as 1-800-Suicide. Your next step is to speak with a doctor.
  • A few times in my adult life. What stopped me-My kids and grandchildren. And I guess the idea that I will truly be happy again. I haven't been really happy since I lost my Dad 13 years ago. So much for the saying"Times heals a broken heart".
  • yes... it was after i became disabled, i took a needle full of morphine to my arm and was all ready to push it in until my best friend opened my front door and hit me very hard in the face and dragged me away from it and proceeded to kick the shit out of me.
  • elyer this year, lest year and befor that
  • Yes but I have never attempted it. I just think of the aftermath and can't do that to the people who love me.
  • It has sort of become a part of my life some days.
  • Many times, and I've almost succeded.
  • Often and I think it is an option when life gets unbearable.:(
  • I think about it every day. I see my self shooting my self in the chest with my 32 semi auto while in a tan suit and tie, But I am afraid I will not suceed and I will be found alive, So I need to have someone gun me down. I still might do it if I ever did someyhing that could get me jailed. If cops came after me I would provoke them to shoot me to death
  • I have ... I am. And I have to say I don't want anyone talking me out of it. I will do it, its a matter of time, when I have figured out how to be successful at it. I don't think that you should try to talk people of it. If they are that unhappy, they would be better off. The we drag down with our pain will be better off. Remember Darwin...just let us be.
  • Yes, I had, several years ago, and what stopped me was the fear of failing in my suicide attempts.
  • Yes I did I had the injections in my room, loaded and ready Mum found them Took me to the ER
  • Lack of knowledge. I don't want to fail at it.
  • Yes, I went to the dentist and got my infected tooth taken care of.
  • Ever see the movie, "Defending Your Life"? Suppose you committed suicide and had to COME BACK REPEATEDLY until you got it right? Wouldn't you prefer to do what you could NOW to avoid the misery of going through whatever you're going through ALL...OVER...AGAIN? http://suicidehotlines.com/ -
  • Actually.... i have thought of suicide alot.. and still do to this very minute it's not a very fun thing to thinkabout....and..people certainly don't like to hear that someone...espcially my age ((15)) is thinking about something like that but....i probably think of about 5 ways to off myself everyday or so...it's not really a good thing to think about...and...i've actually tried a few..but as you can see...didn't work...but thats because i'm depressed ..all the time..and..soo...i really have nothing else to think about...especcially when i get bored
  • constantly. I am recently married, was unemployed for 2 mo. and got a job that treats me like crap. The only reason I don't is because I love my wife and would not do anything to hurt her.
  • somtimes i feel isolated and have not talked to my freinds in a long time even thogh we go to the same collage. iv never been verry soical and i think they have moved on and made new ones while i have been mostly alone for a bit under a year, iv tried making new ones but carn't form the same conection. somtimes i feel grate an have had a good day and others i feel alone and see less point.
  • yes many times. The last time was about two months or so ago. What stopped me was this beautiful song that a good mormon friend of mine sent me almost as if she knew I was ready to throw away God's precious gift of life away.
  • Well, I thought about drowning myself in the bathtub a little while ago. But just imagine this: At 10pm you drown yourself, then you're parents keep knocking on the door, it gets to midnight, they're worried for you, they bang down the door to find their son/daughter lying face down in the bathtub, cold, blue and more naked than the day you was born. Just imagine how that would feel for you're parents. It's the most selfish thing you could ever do.
  • i would say everyone thinks about it at somepoint in their life. me i think i would be too scared to go ahead with it in all honesty. though if you think about it its a wimps way out. finding ways to get through bad times and after they work out is so much more better feeling you would have. not sure if it makes sense but i know what i mean.
  • Yes. What stops me is normally the thought of all the other people who would be devastated and have to deal with my death. It's just not fair to them
  • When i first came out the closet my entire family and the majority of my friends turned their back on me. I was very alone, sad. But then i realized; who are they? noone, thats who. And i just continued to be who i am, and they or most of them got used to who i am. but i was very close for a while there, i felt isolated. its not something i would like to feel again.
  • ive thought about it alot but mostly while intoxicated i was lucky enough to say to myself wait until your sober and see how you feel and i always changed my mind
  • yes but i know that its not worth it. people who i have talked to that think about it think nobody will miss them but i know i would miss them. anybody you talk to everyday most likly unless you scream and scream will miss you at least a little bit. people want to kill themself and think that it will harm nobody else but when you kill yourself you hurt everyone around you i just repeated myself in like 4 diffrent ways...
  • Only mornings! ;-)
  • yes every day but never attempt it yet...still devising a way to make it seem like an accident
  • saddly, all through 6th grade:(
  • I BECAME AN HERO
  • yes tried and failed then i went crazy the voices took over hell is real please never do it
  • yes i tried and failed then the voices took over please dont do i hell is real
  • I have several times. But my thoughts for why I need to live were more powerful. And years ago someone told my mother that I was having a really hard time being on this Earth and that night she looked me in the eye and said "You are my rock. My world. Please wake up tomorrow, because there will be so many people who won't." I never had a suicidal thought again.
  • Yes I have.
  • Yeah, but I'm bipolar. It comes with the job. There's medicine that will fix that for you, you know. +5
  • yes when my gf expired
  • NO, I disagree that suicide is the answer, if you have had enough, go on an adventure trek or kayak a river or something, if you survive, believe me the adrenaline and the excitement will eradicate all suicidal thoughts, you'll be wanting to do it again, if you die... well at least it was something other than in the bath or off a bridge, where other people have to clear up the bloody mess
  • All the time. It is a constant thought in my head.
  • I do not now, but have been there before. It sure is NOT a good feeling at all! I don't think I would ever have actually done that, but always was WISHING for something to happen to me so that I would just die. If you feel any bit like that, I hope you get help somehow. It's the most horrible, uncontrollable feeling. You should not have to go on feeling like that. +5
