Just putting myself out there. I've had thoughts of suicide for eight years now. I've never tried anything, but I'm going through a stage in my life where I want to share my problems with people so I can help myself become a better person - a healthy, happy person. I've never had an outlet to do so. Yes, I have caring friends and family but I'd feel ashamed to tell them my problems. My ego gets in the way and I wish it didn't. I've had some rough days where I've just wanted to end it, but have always recovered within a day or two. Anyways, I've read some of the suicide letters on here and it makes me extremely sad to read and see that there are so many people suffering just as I have all these years. It's almost surreal to see these letters. It's ghostly to read someones death note. I hope I can be of some help and support to those who really need it on here, and hopefully the community will reach out to me as well in my times of need. Thanks and I look forward to the healing process.
