i have been severely depressed off and on since i was 11. ten years later i had my first serious suicide attempt. this was a couple weeks ago. i have wanted to kill myself before but was not sure how. i am a cutter and went in the shower, cut deep enough to find a vein and tried to slice it lengthwise. when the blood started pouring from a little nick, i couldn't see enough to open it any farther, which is why i didn't bleed to death. i think if i ever try this again, i will really concentrate on slicing it wide open.
but anyway.. i failed obviously. one of my dorm mates found me and called an ambulance. i spent 4 days in the hospital, 1 day in the psych ward. 15 stitches. i really just wanted to die beautiful. the caring and love friends and family gave me afterwards was worth the failure though.

i'm not sure what the point is here. maybe i'm just glad to tell my story. and it's nice finding this forum. i feel bad for the people in here who want to die, but i understand as well.

thanks for the read.

If you can tear apart your arm like that, you are a warrior

You will do well living, with guts like that!
that's a very nice thing to say, and makes me feel better about living. thank you.
however, i find it very hard to cut deep without alcohol. if i could do these things without something for the pain, i'd be tougher.

thank you to everyone else who responded as well.
