    How long have you been suicidal?

    Let’s find out if there is any legitimacy to the cliché, “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.”

    Obviously there will be some difference of opinion on what exactly is considered a temporary problem…..but, in my opinion, I would think of temporary as a few months or a few years at most. I’ve been considering suicide since I was about 15 years old. I’m 25 years old now so that’s 10 years; as a result, I would have to say that my suicide would be a permanent solution to a long-term problem.

    Since I was 20, I'm 27 now. So around 7 and a half years and there's no way I'll ever want to live either, I've been suffereing for too long to know that for a fact. I've accepted it now.

    I hope none of you are considering suicide solely because you're lonely.

    This forum is like... supposed to be a place where you're not. If you haven't tried making friends with anyone here, please do.

    The desire to die can be eliminated from almost all of your lives, if that's what you truly wish. You're semi-free humans, after all. Specifically, you're not even in prison, and other than media, there's no psychological torture being forced upon you.

    The problem may be that you can't take any action, for whatever reason. But if you do want your feelings to go away, you have to do something; waiting will, most likely, not cause your problems to be solved.

    They develop in your brain, so change that. The first step to helping yourself isn't to do what someone requests that you do; you have to think things through on your own, and make a decision you're certain of.

    I'm not here because I'm uncertain of my decision - I'm here because I'm bored.

    Just a couple of months.

    Edit - I did try a rather pathetic suicide attempt as a teenager - but that's a long time ago now. Since, I havent had serious suicidal feelings till very recently.

    I think my feelings come from specific situations, which trigger a depressive episode, rather than from long term depressive feelings.
