Is it wrong to feel suicidal? I know how it feels to lose a loved one, my uncle killed himself 20yrs ago so I know the questions you ask urself, I see what it does to ur parents, ur siblings, ur children. BUT...he's not suffering anymore, life was difficult for him, he witnessed things u shouldn't have to, he done things he shouldn't have too..and they haunted him so he couldn't survive, I Understand why he decided enough was enough. So, when someone tells me to think about friends & family am I selfish when I then take an overdose or when the thoughts of death are with me. I must be, cause I'm willing to hurt others to ease my own pain...that's something else I don't like about me, I've tried to change it, but the thoughts of suicide are more powerful then any rational thinking. I self medicate on high doseages is this classed as suicide ~ sorry probably strange question sorry.
