    4th time, maybe 5th: It's been almost 3 weeks

    since my last attempt. Obviously, I failed yet again. I was unconscious at home for a couple days, but then I just woke up and went to work like nothing happened. I'm keep thinking about it. Will I ever get it right? Will I ever be free?

    I tried to kill myself

    when I was 13, last year. I put rope round my neck and tried to hang myself but unfortunately the rope wasn't tight enough as around the light shade and it can down once I let go. Instead of trying suicide I just cut I thin I'd rather live now but yet I'm still in pain

    Long Story Short...

    When people look at me, they think " Oh, she's a model, she must have such a great life. " Wrong. My life hasn't been complete sunshine and rainbows, though it hasn't been complete **** either. I've had a bit of bad luck in life with different things happening that I don't need...

    I've attempted suicide on several accounts,

    but none have worked. I think I'm actually starting to find a purpose in life! (My first attempt was at 12 years... Yeah. I probably didn't succeed because I can't even afford a gun.) God damnit, now I have Justin Beaver's 'Baby' stuck in my head! I don't even like him!

    I was in a deep depression phase in my life,

    it still goes on till this day, but I just had to realize that the more I dread life the less I'll live it. I try to make the positives count. I feel my antisocial-ness gives me time to think to myself . I keep striving to out branch depression each day.

    I killed myself on my sixteenth birthday.

    I am 17 now. I am still dead, but how can I be typing this right now? Simply because I am the hollow shell that exists afterwards. I am the body without soul, nor spirit. I am dead, yet I am alive. Welcome to the world of suicide.
