    I think you just learn to live with it. I've been suicidal for years.

    What do YOU think?

    depends on your reasons, if you are like me probably not

    but if you are healthy and don't look like the elephant man I don't see why not

    If tons of money cannot solve your problem than you have to learn to live with it.

    I've been suicidal since I learned what the word meant. I've been very well to do at times and broke others. Money only seems to play a part of stress in my case. over the years I have learned coping skills. I'm still here...lol

    While I'm quite used to coping with SI (suicidal ideation), I'll never really be used to it.

    I've been suicidal for about 6 months and it hasn't stopped, but I know that it does stop for most people, but they'd probably have to start making changes for it to stop though.

    I think suffering from suicidal thoughts is similar to being an alcoholic. You can take the "steps" or learn ways to stop harming yourself with the addiction, like AA. But you will always be a recoving alcoholic. And the same applies to suicide and thoughts and urges of, you will always be recovering. It depends on how hard you are willing to work at keeping it actively out of your life.

    It's always in the back of my mind, but I find it's harder to pull off.

    Depends I guess, as for my I doubt I'll ever stop being suicidal and I'll doubt i will learn to live with it. Kinda my thinking that its in my future to die through suicide dont know why though.

    I believe you can get over it, you just have to change what's making you this way. Sure, it will take time, it will take effort. At the end of the day though, it's you that has to decide whether or not it's worth to put in the time and effort to get better from this. To recover from it. Nobody can just pull you out of it if you're not going to do any work yourself.

    I'm sure you can overcome it, depression and be happy. The thing is you have to want it. When you're depressed, the disease makes you a way you're not really. Just give yourself time. One day things change, with help, 2 attempts and in serious remission. It does happen.
