    Im new this site, but when I did a search and I found this site. I felt the same way y'all did. However I was in Elementary when I felt I could go on. You see I was and still am over weight. And of course Kids at that age can be mean and cruel... hell even my 6th grade teacher was nasty to me at one point and said a mean commit about me "Running". I remember oh so often I remember waking up in the morning and being said because I "woke" up. At the young age I wanted to die. over the years I went to these forums and people would just come by send me information and then leave. But i felt like they didn't understand me. They just posted their opinion about it and that's it.

    For me. I went to this site www.jennyanswers.com its pretty much like this however more of a personal level. I can honestly say its been years since i even thought about death, and i feel like i owed it to that site. But then again that's for me. Everyone is different but for me personally I needed that one on one talk with someone and even though I'm way pass that... I still talk to Jenny till this day . everyone needs help some times, its just good we now have different ways to go about it. :rolleyes:

    no offence but your not a "survivor" if you haven;t tryed suicide...you havent felt the guilt and self hate of yourself for been so selfish for trying to take your own life and feel like "im my mothers only son but i could be 6 foot under rotting away right now"...but then at the same time you think things like "so now i've survived...why aren't i happy" "uwww its friday everyone around me's smiling making plans with there girlfriends" or the one and only

    "who am I really?"

    if you have tryed suicide im very sorry for writing this..and im in a bad mood so dont take offence

    glad your here to try help people though and I am glad your happy...im pushing myself to be like you, it will take time but i'll get there...cant expect true happiness at being an 18 year old boy now can I? haha

    Brad: You do not have to attempt suicide to be a survivor. She survived a horrible childhood and I guess she's implying that she could have given up at that point. There are "survivors" of the holocaust and other types of horrible illness and depression that have never attempted.

    I know that the last part of your post was positive and I hope we can be of help to you. I hope you continue to post and meet some of the wonderful, caring and insightful people at SF.

    Yes, because i don't want anyone to think that they have to "make the attempt" in order to be serious about wanting to kill themselves. the thought of ending your life is a warning enough . because at that point if the attempt is made ... then it could be TOO LATE !

    And once its TOO LATE... you can never go back to change it. :love:

    I don't mean to be rude, but to suggest everyone can be a "survivor" because you are is naive at best. It's nice to hear about your success story though.
