    i am sorry you've gone through this
    i've contemplated suicide but i have children so i feel as if i'm trapped. i may not reach a happier place in my life but i cannot punish my children w/this .
    so i understand a portion of what you speak of
    i have had a few friends who attempted but failed - and i am so relieved they failed
    most of them are too
    but there is one who is still sad he/she failed
    i have had two relatives who succeeded
    the damage those two relatives left behind
    man
    human wreckage
    pain in spades
    i hope you reach a place in your LIFE that you are at peace and happy
    i hope you don't mind my sharing
    am here if you would like to talk (hugs)

    I have a man that lives in my town who tried by putting a shot gun in his mouth. He didn't die, he just blew off his jaw and the front part of his face. I see him at the grocery store once in a while and it looks like he has a big crater in the middle of his face, and his nose doesn't have cartilage or a bone behind it. His mouth is gigantic hole in his face. I am surprised his eyes still work to see.

    I worked in a hospital where there was a man who had tried by overdosing on pain pills. It caused him to have seizures, then he had an anoxic brain injury. He is now about 60% brain dead, and he will look at you, but doesn't know what is going on. He is hooked up to feeding tubes and breathes through a trach hooked up to a ventilator. It also caused him to be quadriplegic, and he just lays there and shakes all day. His hands and feet are clubbed from not using any muscles in his body. His secretions have to be suctioned about every 2 hours and has about a quart or so bucket of sputum that has to be changed everyday....

    Another girl in the same hospital tried by cutting her wrists. The lack of blood just got to her brain and she had a myocardial infarction. It caused a similar brain injury and she is now comatose.

    I thought about it too ,imagined every way to go,but i keep thinking what's after that,I wonder What makes every body think that if we commit suicide things will be better, even if you don't believe in heaven and hell,maybe there is something even worse!!

    The way I look at it...is if you honestly want to kill yourself...you will have a backup plan to your backup plan...to make sure you dont fail. Thats the point...not to fail.

    I ended up involuntarily committed to a psych ward on a 72 hour hold. I had to see a "mental health judge" at the hospital (he only came in once a week) and plead my case to him. I was there because of a suicide attempt (tried to hang myself, but when I jumped off the bathroom tub, I knocked a glass off and it crashed onto the floor, therefore alerting my husband who came and released me) and that suicide attempt was because I am a heroin addict and feel hopeless. So, eventually after the 72 hour hold, I ended up in a rehab. The whole experience was NOT fun, but I do understand. Hope things work out for you.

    A relative of mine hung herself but survived because she was found by someone about twelve minutes later. Because of the lack of oxygen to her brain part of her brain is permanently dead. She was in intensive care for weeks, close to death, but managed to survive. She can't talk, has problems walking, no hand/eye coordination, has the mentality of a small child, has difficulty eating and swallowing which required a feeding tube to years, drools constantly, and is completely dependent on others for her care including bathroom wiping. I know life can be hard but think of what kind of stress you are putting your family through. She is now someone's burden because she was selfish and only thought about her pain at that moment. Think about the people who love you and who will have to take care of you if you fail and you become disabled. I would never want to be that way for my family.

    What if your family is what pushed you to the point. Its selfish of them to be so caught up in their own lives to the point they where oblivious to her suffering. There were signs. Because they didn't reach out to her its only fitting they should be the ones to care for her now since they obviously didn't before. Ijs I acknowledge I don't know the facts but I do know I keep in touch with my family enough to know when they are going thru something.
