    Hi All,

    first post, firstly i want to make it clear to anyone who reads this that i am not attempting to offend anyone, so please leave any angry, snide or unhelpful replies aside.

    A bit about myself, im a 35yr old male unmarried no children unemployed, no financial commitments.

    In average health, the only complaints i could have are that i lost an eye at 17 and im about 50 lbs overweight.

    Ok my question is as follows, after trying and failing repeatedly to fit in to society i have elected to be mature and accelerate the natural process of death.

    The reason is simple, i do not belong, i do not think like others and i have tried everything i can think of to integrate to no avail.
    Every job i have worked in has left me empty and every relationship i have had has ripped my guts out. I am just not tough enough for this life.

    I have felt this way since i was 7 yrs old (thats as long as i can remember)
    So i think i have tried for long enough.

    There are a couple of people whom i wish to tell that i wont be sticking around any longer. I just want to minimise the impact on them.

    I know the obvious answer is just stick it out, it'll get better, try a different attitude, get help etc....but i've done all doesn't work.

    So instead of just doing the act and leaving people in the dark, i want to tell them that i want to be gone.

    So readers, how can i break the news?

    Hi tried it all. Xanax, prozac, diazepam, st johns wort, niacin, fish oils...etc, they just made me feel ill and i know theres nothing chemically wrong with me.

    Counselling was good for learning how to breathe but little else, paying someone serious money to listen to how pathetic i am only made me feel worse (and quickly ate up my savings).

    Hi - I could've wrote your post word for word myself, except I'm even older than you (not that you're old, lol) and I've been trying to make it better for a long time also.

    I'm sorry I don't have any good encouragement for you other than to say I understand EXACTLY how you feel.

    You have a couple of people you care for.
    thus,your concern about how they will feel if you commit suicide.
    I would strongly urge you not to do it. Your action will hurt allot more people then you know.
    As far as consoling goes.. I know how you feel.. Most of them are just money suckers.
    Being a suicidal drunk for many years, I am still suicidal, not so drunk anymore.
    Without the alcohol as a crutch. My life seems more empty then ever, SO I KNOW HOW YOUR SITUATION CAN SEEM HOPELESS.
    Life is SO HARD, DEATH SEEMS to be the way out.
    Be good to yourself and don't do anything harmful.
    Wish I had an answer for you.. a magic pill... or "BREATHING" LOL.
    But there isn't one. Just hang on by your finger nails and try to stay alive.

    Hmm well I have been told there is no way to tell people. No one will really accept it. It might just make things harder on the both of you. I know when I told my mom that I was planning to kill myself, she only freaked out. I only really told her to make her feel bad... that is a different story.

    This is exactly why I do not want to try any of this stuff, therapy, drugs, what have you. It feels like it would be futile... and a waste of money.

    I don't think that anyone would want to hear it- even if you wanted to tell people. It's generally seen as a negative thing- all someone might do in return is list off things they think are positive about you and reasons to live.

    I told my mom and my brother- as well as quite a few friends that I no longer want to live; but all they can really do is try to convince a person that they should continue living for whatever pointless reason...

    I think that there are some people who are just not happy with their lives no matter what.
    If someone's destiny could be to die-- they would die when they're supposed to. There's really no sense in rushing it along, because we should be living for some reason- shouldn't we?

    You can make it clear to your family and any friends that you are unhappy and unwilling to change- but I wouldn't tell anyone flat out that you want to die. It's just pointless to tell anyone bluntly.
    um... that's my opinion anyways.
