    im 16 and am finally on my way out of a battle with depression thats lasted two and a half years, but i still have this fascination with suicide/self harm, like stories, pics, videos, anything regarding it.
    its weird and doesnt really scare me but im afraid itll scare my family if they knew bout it. itd really freak them out and theyd think im depressed again.
    am i the only one?

    I've watched some pretty bad suicide videos and pictures before on the internet. I'm not suicidal either. I just found it interesting to see what really happens when someone does this. They're really graphic images though, especially the shotgun suicides. Probably not good for your subconscious mind. I'd never tell my family about this or even about SF, before they get the wrong idea.

    i think it can serve as a 'healthy' outlet for feelings that left alone could manifest again as depression/suicidal thoughts/self-harm. if the stories/vids don't make you want to follow suit, then i think its harmless. if your parents worry, you could try to explain it to them like that. might ease their mind, but i think most parents will always worry, its the nature of parenthood.

    yeah i have it as well, i think it keeps me alive to some extent.

    some people will have the wrong idea so if you don't think you're not going to act on it, and you are soon to be out of depression then its best not to say anything.

    some people go "damage control mode" when they hear about death, suicide fascination/ideation.
