    I battle in a constant war of suicidal thoughts

    on a daily basis. I refrain from drinking because when I am imbibed the likeliness of me shooting myself is high. It has been this way for two years. I recall one moment when I had a gun in my hand as I stepped along a railroad track. Loaded and ready for action. I'm shocked I...

    Death Looks More Attractive Right Now.

    There have been many times when I wonder if I would be better off dead. I'm lonely most of the time, most people I know have either left the country and headed for greener pastures overseas or died. I've never married, don't have children and my employment prospects are...

    My Depression Has Taken The Place Of My Heart

    Even though the title of this may sound extremely corny, that is the only way to describe how I feel. Sometimes when I stop in my life and think about things I feel some kind of a twisting, churning feeling in the pit of my chest. There isn't any other way to describe it. Dread...

    I Definitely Do..

    I sometimes just wish I would die in my sleep. It would make things so much better. All the pain would be over. I wouldn't have to worry about having to kill myself someday because the work will have been done for me. There's really no reason for me to be here, anyway.

    I'm A Complete Waste Of Space

    I find it quite sad when people say to my face that they wish I was dead. I don't know about you, but....I would rather be dead. No one would miss me. A few people have my cell number, but if I had one invite in the last 3 years....that was a lot. I love being alone. And would...

    Tonight I wish that death would take me.

    A waste of expectations, of space and of life. I wish that car had hit me. I wish I'd died in the womb, something anything to make this hell I love every day simply stop. I know I will amount to nothing, I will die nothing, loveless and without a word of sadness. I am not a...

    But I Don't Go Too Far

    While I do occasionally wish I wasn't exactly around anymore, I never even think of resorting to suicide. My religious background taught me that doing so would undoubtedly be the worst mistake I could ever make. When these thoughts roll around, I just figure that I'd be able to...

    I have gotten to the point

    Life seems so unreal, so trivial. Every morning I take a knife and press it against my throat, and I never feel a thing. My heart doesn't accelerate from fear, my palms don't sweat from anticipation. That frightens me, to know that at any moment I could take my own life and it...

    I get tired of my own self entrapment at times and feel like I will never escape.  It's the futility that really sends me down a negative line of thought ending with a thought of suicide.  I've always dismissed it and have never attempted or even made a plan.  But...

    Sometimes I Wish But Life Is Too Beautiful To Give Up

    I feel like an outsider with my family. They don't understand me and I don't understand them. With my friends I always feel like I have to make the effort, like I have to pretend to be other people to get them to like me. Surely that's not what friendship is about? If I...

    Sometimes I wish I was dead.

    But death is too easy. Too kind. Unless there is something even worse after this life. Even then death isn't kind bc what about those we love who are left suffering through life? Why are we left to make sense of cruelty, madness, pain and non-sense, abuse and neglect? Why did...

    I still think about dying sometimes,

    but then I remember that it won't really solve my problems and that it will hurt the ones I'm close to. I've learned to embrace sleep instead. It's like dying, but without the commitment. :)
