    Between a Rock and a Knife

    Cutting doesn't work... I can't drink it away (heaven know's I've tried)... I'm stuck. Nothing to do... Can't off myself because of what it will do to friends and family... People tell me suicide is selfish... I believed it once... Now I wonder... Are they just as selfish to ask...

    Wonderful Change!

    Hey guys, For almost six years I woke up and went sleep with thinking about suicide. I had rope (with perfect knot) in wardrobe. I was too tired to cry or looking for some help. I just wanted to die, no matter how. I was ready to feel real pain if it could help me to end my...

    Down In The Depths

    I started out by putting an experience in the "I Think All the Time About Suicide" group.  Then I amended that experience when I got a new med that seemed to work.  Well, the effect of the med has gone away and the suicidal thoughts are back again, bigtime.The only...

    Why? I don't see why death should be a solution.

    Can someone please explain it? **** off to whatever person that has left you. Is life boring or just sad? Take medicines or drugs. Feeling alone? Meet someone. Afraid of socializing? Drugs/alcohol. Made something that you regret? Fix it, change life, be kind. Can't accept...

    Me And The National Suicide Prevention Hotline

    I have asked a lot of questions about suicide and death on EP, also I have talked about it for a long time with my EP friends, and the reason for this is that I’m suicidal all the time. I haven’t the chance to talk with someone who had (or have) suicidal thoughts, but as I...

    I'm So Very Tired...

    I'm so tired of people telling me that "tomorrow is another day" or some other cliche bull. This is my existence: I have no friends, no family, no kids, no boyfriend. I have a cat that sometimes want to be around me, but most of the time she rather just steal food...

    I Want to

    I agree I don't want to live anymore. Everyone would be sad for a day then get over it. I need to find a quick way, that is not very painfull and will deffinetly kill me. Any ideas?

    Not Constantly

    I feel suicidal now and then, I have for over a decade now. For a long time it was a constant thing but these days it comes and goes. Today it's gone but it was close earlier. It's a constant struggle with my psyche, trying to convince myself to push through another day, living...

    I Would Commit Suicide Right Now

    Ultimate Control Or Lack of It

    i know it is intensely selfish to want to die but when you feel helpless and hopeless it seems the only solution you think people will see it as an accident then it wont seem so bad plus you really believe they will be better without you you cant damage anyone including yourself...

    I'm tired of being alone

    and misunderstood. I'm tired of living physically but just being dead within. The world wouldn't lose much. I'd much rather die than my baby niece undergoing a surgery.

    Only Solution

    I wrote a story on the group called I attempted suicide.. Eveyrthing I wrote on there is true but I wanted to say something on here because just because I don't want to hurt people it does not mean I do not think of suicide every day of my life. Sometimes the thoughts are worse...

    Again

    I wrote a thread and basically what I am saying is that. Suicide is NEVER the answer. It is a permant solution to something that can be fixed. For people who are cutters or burn themselves they can recover. I am not saying it would be easy but it is worth it. I am a cutter...

    Not Again!?!?

    I'm a veteran of suicide themes, groups, whatever, starting about the end of 2008.  Here I am again.  My last suicide post was ten days ago.  If this were just a repeat of prior posts, more of the same, I wouldn't write it down.  This one's different.Until...

    I've been in that place many times. Infact I used to fantisize about how I'd do it and when. I used to wish I'd get hit by a car or lose control while I was driving and it would kill me. I completely understand how and why people feel like this. But I'll tell you something...it's...

    Please Show Me Your Mercy

      I envy those who get killed for whatever reasons, even those who suffered a lot when they died. It doesn't matter how much they suffered. What matters is that eventually they are dead, which means that they won’t suffer anymore. I am not scared of death at all. For...
