    Just wondering if anyone gets jealous when reading about a death in the newspaper or on the TV? I do!!! I always think I wish it was me.

    When we had a train disaster here and a lot of people lost their lives, I wished I could swap places with them.

    No a Train wreck is to gorey. Plus there is no gaurantee you will die. i would try something a little less pain full. We have had several people killed here by tains. Mostly homeless people. They were hit by the train and were dragged for several hundred yards.

    I am not saying that is how I wanted to go. Just saying that I felt jealous of the people that died and wished that I could have been in their place that I could have died by accident.

    It is sometimes hard to get across what you are trying to say in writing.

    hi downunder

    Yeah, i feel jealous too when i see reports of suicides, and i wish it were me. only if i could find a fool-proof method. People say to research, there are no 100 percent guarantee. It is not like the dead comes back and says, this method will work for sure.

    I hope things get better for you

    I can't say I feel jealous, but I do often wish the decision would be taken out of my hands.

    Yes, I do. I also feel sorry for the people who die and wish I could trade places with them, especially if they are loved and missed by their families, since I am not and it seems senseless for them to die and for me to live. I don't know why I've been alive so long.

    I can't say I feel jealous of other people who die. But I do FEEL for them and their families because they wanted to live not die and it was tragically taken out of their hands. I read about a suicide once when a father had also killed his two children during his own suicide. That was awful. Those kids never choose to die and their mum will be missing them soooo bad, just aching to hold them again.

    Thanks for posting this.

    Yes, I do sometimes.. Especially when I read the news of Heath Ledger.. (Even it was an accident, papers said he was sleeping before his death..) I'm not jealous of most of suicide articles but ppl succeeded in taking sleeping tablets are what I feel enviousness..

    I'm not envy of her but the recent news about a mum ODed to her small son and she died slushing her wrist.. Both of methods normally don't work.. (Well ODing to her 5yrs old son is not right, of course.. )

    I cant envy them because the majority of them wanted to continue living their lives and, if not content about their lives, would at least rather still be alive to see what the future might bring. I'd hate to swap with them if it meant I'd have to deal with that too.

    But yeah, other than that, sometimes I think it would be better me if it was me dying than them.

    yep I envy people that die, if I could go like that I wouldn't have to feel guilty about leaving the kids without a dad

    I couldn't say I am jealous, but I often do wish very much so that it was me. Only in cases when people instantly die, and there isn't much pain though. :unsure:

    I feel the exact same way. LIke if the decision were to be taken out of my hands...that would be wonderful. Again I said that people that actually go through with it are courageous in my book.

    I don't get jealous of others dieing. I almost died when I was 8. The doctor told my dad if I had waited another 5 mins. I would have bled to death. That thought has always stayed with me. Now I know why because when the time to go comes I know how to do it.
