    2 questions:

    Does anyone else pretend to commit suicide sometimes? For example, I bought a couple of cheap, plastic guns a few months ago, and now when I feel really down or suicidal, I put one to my head and pull the trigger a few times. The second fake gun I bought makes a loud clicking sound when the trigger's pulled, which is nice.

    Does anyone else feel drawn to fictional characters or historical figures who committed suicide or were otherwise depressed/suicidal?

    I've never pretended to kill myself. But I am drawn to dark/depressed characters or people in history. I find them interesting. I'm drawn to darker people in general, though.

    I think darker characters are more interesting while brighter characters are more admirable. I can't say I really feel drawn to someone who committed suicide but I do feel slightly sad, a bit like reading a good book then being disappointed by the ending.

    I guess I've pretended to kill myself in poems. I've writen a lot of poems about different ways where I try to kill myself none of which I've ever even tried to do.

    Although i have never done it myself, i suppose pretending to comitt suicide is similar to things that people who cut do instead of cutting ( like snapping rubberbands on their wrist, drawling on themselves with red marker... etc)

    I have never pretended to suicide although it isn't really a strange question. If acting it out in that way keeps you from actually attempting, i would much rather you do that. :hug:

    i was driving down the road at 55mph and looked right at tractor trailer doing at least 60mph..... just had to cut the wheel to the right.. IT's the USA, not England:blink:
    If my addition is correct that's a head on at 115mph.

    Iv have more thoughts than actions. But I do wonder down to the cemntary and wonder if any of the deceased did infact commit suicide. I never really pretend to kill myself, if it does happen then it will be for real.

    Ive never pretended to do it, but yes Im drawn to people who done it, like the Bojork Stalker suicide and Dwyer guy who killed himself during a live telecast and stuff like that. For whatever reason, it makes me personally not want to commit suicide because you see the cold emptiness after the act.

    I've done things like that often, it's sort of play-acting, if you want to call it that.

    It's soothing in a strange way, isn't it?

    to your second question, definetly. I hate heroes that never seem to have a hard time (ie. Superman), I love ones that are darker. I feel more drawn to them if the death is some sort of heroic self-sacrifice. (lol, I feel so dumb saying that, no one knows about love of super heroes/villains!)

    Depression feeds on self pity, it doesn't work. A strange coping mechanism you have there but glad it works for you.
