    I think I'm going to commit suicide cause this is the first time I haven't tried talking to any of my friends when I was suicidal. I am prescribed ALOT of klonopin, and I could easily get alcohol. That's all I got to do, alcohol + benzos = death. Here's why.

    About 5 years ago I started college. I started to party and have fun. I did too, I had a great time. I remember one day a couple hundred kids were sitting outside, drinking, smoking, hanging out. I literally remember that day as the greatest day in my life. I thought that maybe that was heaven. I loved everything about college, I loved learning, I loved writing, I loved debating with my professors.


    Half way through, I was diagnosed with a very severe form of epilepsy that is progressive and getting worse. My chances of living 'till 40 are 50% according to a study on death and epilepsy. What's the point, seriously, everything is going wrong. I swear people always tell me this and that, and the only thing that stops me is the fact that my parents would die if I killed myself. But now, I really just don't care enough.

    Still doesn't help. I am well researched and my neurologist is the best. As down as I am, I can recognize that. I really hate life, people are in my apartment, still waiting... might try.

    It sucks to get news like that but remember statistics given by doctors are at best estimates. It probably doens't look like it but a 50-50 chance of living are still decent odds. Take them as best you can ok and savour every minit
