    I'm attempting to do as rational and cold-blooded an analysis of the pros and cons of committing suicide on a personal level as I can. In other words, I would never presume to tell someone else what they can and cannot do, but I'm definitely tilting towards suicide myself. Having said that I'm trying to give myself a year (which would end January 31,2008) to see if what I'm leaning towards is in fact correct, so that (at least in my own mind) I've eliminated any sense that what I'm considering is an impulsive act.

    I guess what I'm wondering is if such a discussion would be permissible under the Terms of Service here. At the moment I am decidedly biased towards suicide and not against it, the year I'm giving myself being more like a cool-down period than anything else.

    I'm a member under the same name at Wing of Madness, and indeed started posting there recently for the simple reason that it was the only forum I knew about in the area of mental illness. However, I thought it would be more appropriate for me to try to work things out here, given that suicide discussion is the main topic here.

    Before I start posting I'd just like to know if this is okay. No harm, no foul if it isn't. I've always try to be scrupulously observant of the the Terms of Service everywhere I've posted in the past.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sorry, I don't know if what you are asking is okay. But I'm sure the staff here will appreciate you being considerate about it.
    Anyway, just wanted to say hi :) x

    Hmm, I'd hate to assume that silence equals consent, but perhaps I should in this instance.

    I hope if I run afoul of any of the rules I'll get cut a bit of slack. :unsure:

    I see no problem with you deiscussing your pros and do need to be aware of the fact thet we are a pro-life site and we do not discuss methods here....those are areas that would lead to you being put under moderation....discussing your feelings are apprpriate and welcomed....I do hope you can find the support your looking for here and that you decide to stick around with us here'll find we are a great bunch of people!!!

    Gotcha. I think I can do all of that with no problem.

    From poking around the site, probably the only reason they'd want to put me under moderation is how long-winded I can be sometimes. :tongue:

    welcome to the forum

    you'll find that a lot of people here are leaning toward suicide, but there are a lot of people here that will support you in leaning the opposite way, or just overcoming the obstacles that you are faced with.

    take care :smile:
