    This is my first time posting here...
    I'm having suicidal thoughts for years now but I don't really want to die...
    I really feel i'm better of death. I know that's not right, but it's the truth.
    Anyone else have these feelings?

    Best regards,

    Yes suicidle thoughts haunt me alot i find if I can write somethings down to release anger or emotions it does help.Never act on them as death is not a solution.Even talking with somebody can help too but make sure they are understanding as people do get scared of the mention of suicide.Keep posting here as well as you will not be judged and alot of people here are caring and understanding.Take care

    You would be glad to know that you are not alone in this, as at any given time 1 in 20 people are having thoughts of suicide. This is indeed part of being human to feel down from time to time and search for solutions to end suffering. Susan Rose Blaunter went through 18 years of struggling with thoughts of suicide and developed strategies to cope with these better. Get her book so you don't have to re invent the wheel. Her book is very well writen and a fisrt person account of how to manage thoughts of suicide effectively. Susan Rose : "How I stayed alive when my brain was trying to kill me".
    Take care
