    If I Don't Come Here More Than 6 Months!

    More than 6 months of my absence will tell you that I've committed suicide..I've been thinking of suicide a lot lately. Either I'm going to jump off my terrace or I'll take all the medicines at once. I'm telling it here so that my EP friends know if I die.

    I Thought About Suicide

    It was about a month ago. I was in my room just browsing on the internet, when I had the idea of Googling the name of this woman I dated years ago. (I fell hard for her at that time, and acted childishly which is what ultimately lead to us not being together anymore; but that's...
