    Recently I have noticed that at work I have been making suicidal gestures. Primarily in the form of making a gun with my hand and making a shooting gesture at my head. There are times when that is all I do at my desk. I sit there and pretend to shoot myself.

    Is this a bad sign? Am I making a cry for help?

    That is a subconsious sign for help I think. I do the same thing, I realize that when people ask "what are you going to do if..." I generally say "Kill myself" or "blow my brains out" jokingly but not really. Its something thats in the back of our mind constantly so it creeps into our outward signals without us realizing.

    Yeah no one seems to care that I am doing it which is discouraging.

    I've done that myself at times, don't know why......

    Don't be discouraged that people don't seem to care about what you are doing. I've seen that type of gesture done many times on TV or in comedy skits, so I think that most people would just assume you are kidding around.

    Yeah... I just feel it is the only way I can cry for help sometimes. I want people to notice... well... some people. However, society has blocked this form of crying for help as well.

    All it is is a way to relieve stress or let out some emotion. No big deal, I do things like this too sometimes but not so that people can see it.

    I don't do that but I have a knife collection and I am always handling them andLightly crossing my skin with them.. I'm just afraid one day I will cut deep..
