    Suicide With No Warning

    So I've had a plan on how I want to take my life, and the date is coming up. I'm not posting this asking for help. If I want to help myself I'll go to a crisis emergency line, I promise you that. I'm here to address a different issue: How do you feel about people who kill themselves without a warning or don't even leave a letter when they do? I feel like if a person is truly intent on doing it, there will be no cries for help. They'll live their life, go about their business, and just...do it. If your loved one killed themselves without warning, how would that make you feel? What questions run through your mind? I'd love to know your thoughts because I want questions to answer.

    You need to look back at posts from members who joined because someone close to them committed suicide. You don't need to ask how we imagine we would feel read what people really feel like at the time and years on. Go on, look, read how it feels like.

    It hurts forever you will question in your mind what if I had done more, doesn't matter if there is a note or not. Every moment you question you read into you literally go through it the little things the most. God seriously take a step back and think surely surely there is another way because I tell you this however hard or impossible it seems. People close to you would do anything to help, believe me you have to give them that chance

    My son did just that. Killed himself.
    How did it make me feel? It ruined the life of myself and the rest of my family. It changed everything about the way we live, destroyed my dreams of a retirement, and left my heart cold and empty. I miss my son and have nightmares about it every single night and I miss him ever second of every day.

    How does it make me feel? It killed me and his mom and his brothers... we are still "alive," but we are empty now inside. Suicide hurts EVERYBODY.

    yeah i asked the question primarily out of my own anger that a friend i had close to me killed herself and though she LOVED to write she never left a letter telling us why she did it. I mean, we all knew but we'd love to know her side of it. I don't know. I just felt like she could have left something. Thanks for your input<3

    Even if she'd left a book length letter you would still ask why.

    weird how everything was *going* right in her life, but everything was going wrong in her heart and mind. I think sometimes we expect that if good things are happening to a person they must be happy about it and sometimes we forget that there could be other things that they aren't happy about, or even very depressed about. xoxoxox

    yeah but something would have been better than nothing. I would have asked why a LOT less that's for sure.
