4 years ago I made an unsuccessful suicide attempt, called 911, and ended up in the hospital for several days and spent about a week in a psyche ward. Before being transferred to the psyche ward the doctor explained something to the effect of "You break into a car and then go to jail for some time you will think about that the next time and won't break into a car since you have experienced the consequences and wouldn't want to go through it again." By that logic the next time I attempt suicide I will think about how I "did time" in the psyche ward and I will be discouraged to try it again. I think this is very flawed logic on his part. I think instead of being discouraged I'd try a more drastic method <mod edit, TDM -- methods>. I would also be more unlikely to reach out for help. What are your thoughts on this situation?
