    On the 27th I took an overdose, I wont say what I took, or how much, but it was enough to land me in hospital for 5 days.

    The thing is, its not put me off ending my life, despite knowing how sad and hurt my family members were.

    They all came to visit and cheer me up, and although I felt greatful for having such a supportive family, it hasnt changed my view on life.

    I have only been out of hospital a few days, yet I have contemplated suicide 4-5 times since :(


    I am so confused right now

    First of all, I'm glad to hear that you're still with us. I used to be the same way in my mid-teen years, I never expected or cared to live. I used substances heavily, risked my life a lot, and was involved with a group of kids who were exploitive and unlawful.

    Years later, I don't know how I managed to survive. We each have our own situations that are unique, but there are some things to consider here. In any near-death situation like the one you've described, surviving is nothing short of a miracle at times. Despite all the challenges thrown at you, you're still here. The strength it's taken to get as far as you have is something to be proud of. Tomorrow, next week, or month, anything could happen - but right now, by sharing your story, you've shown us there is a strong potential within you - perhaps destined for something far greater than what your life has been so far. The future is always uncertain. From personal experience, I never thought my life would be worth living when I was younger, years later everything has changed. I'm now thankful for all the pain I've had to endure, and it's all made sense in the end. The decisions are always yours to make, but I wish you all the best in the paths ahead of you.

    I can really empathise with you. I took an overdose in december which resulted in my family being told that I was unlikely to pull through. Despite the upset I caused them, I feel ready to 'attempt' again. I guess it makes me cold and heartless, but my need to commit suicide seems much stronger than anything else.

    Please try not to give in to the urges, it may cause more harm than good. Pm me in you want to talk.
