    Heres the list:

    FOR Suicide:

    1) My parents will save on alot of bucks. What with no college and other expenses on my side.

    2) I won't have to go thru life alone, like I am right now.

    3) I won't have to worry about if I fail or not.

    4) I will never need to be sad or cry or feel miserable, like I do now.

    5) I will never feel like I have no way out.

    FOR Living:

    1) -

    2) -

    3) -

    4) -

    5) -

    See that? I got NOTHING for living. And even IF I do come up with reasons to live the reasons to die outweigh them.

    ^ lol

    For suicide -
    1) Life is shit and will never get better
    2).. I know that because i've been told that i'm treatment resistant
    3) I want to be able to choose when I die, not have something else kill me
    4) I'd rather jump off beachyhead then die of cancer/heart attack/whatever other disease i'll develop
    5) I have no real reason to live
    6) I can't trust people so i'm not really suited to life
    7) Life is tedious
    8) People would be better off without me
    9) I hate having to take psychotropic drugs. If i'm dead, I won't have to
    10) There's no hope for me
    11).. If I didn't kill myself I'd end up going mad and being sent to a psychiatric hospital
    12) I'm beyond help

    Those all work for me too.
    I never had a friend in my life and due to autism I probably wont.
    It's like living in an isolated hell. Hopefully I'll end my misery soon.

    Reasons to die:
    1. I hate the medications the doctors put me on and Im going to be put back on them soon. If I were dead I wouldnt have to take them.
    2.I wouldnt have to hear my family nag me and push it up in my face that Im a total failure.
    3.I wouldnt have to feel the pain of the failure that I feel because I cant fix my marriage.
    4.There would be no more need to feel like a jackass when Im talking to therapists and doctors.
    5.I couldnt embarasse myself or screw up by calling hotlines or local crisis centers just to vent.
    6.I wouldnt have to change diapers, clean spit up off my carpet, or dog pee off the tiles.
    7.No for fighting with those I love..
    Im sure I could think of more but thats it for now..

    Reason to live:
    1.Even though I hate changing diapers and cleaning up puke I love my son and wouldnt want him to be without me if I could controll it and keep it from happening.
    2.Even though I hate cleaning up doggie pee I know its not her fault as shes got a bladder problem and I love her anyways. I wouldnt want someone mistreating her if my husband didnt keep her after I was gone. Same for my other dog and my cat.
    3.I would hate to put my family thru emotional hell causes because I died and if I can keep that from happening Im going to try my best to do just that, keep it from happening.

    I could say things like: ice cream, diet soda, chocolate, watermelon, music, scary movies, ect. But if I were dead I wouldnt have a need for them and I wouldnt even know I was missing them so...

    wait, so you don't give ashit if your family goes through a great deal of pain and is never the same but you care about the money they spend on you?? Money comes and goes, and when you are dead they will be forking out $$$$ to take care of your body. I don't know what your beliefs or families beliefs are but they are all costly. I am pro-choice so don't take me as barking out an anti-suicide rant, I just can't understand your logic here.

    Most of my reasons for living are mythoughts of "What happens after".

    For living:
    - My ferrets, mainly my oldest who I know would need me.
    - My dogs.
    - The rescue work i'm involved in, knowing I help somewhere in my life.
    - Knowing my family has been through hell, and I'd hurt them all.
    - Knowing my family does love me, and knowing they'd blame themselves.
    - Thnking about who would find my body.
    - the fear of attempting suicide, failing, and having to live an even worse life.
    - Wondering if a life of friends, fun, love, and happiness could be in my future.
    - fear of my next life.
    - relates to the last one: I've been through cancer and it was easier than depression. I also wonder if it will return and I can simply take no action and die.

    For dieing:
    - I've been depressed for almost eight years (i'm eighteen).
    - I've NEVER had any friends, never offline.
    - I'm unhappy with myself and aside from my humor and sarcastic nature don't like anything else.
    - I still have the fear I will be left again, once my mother can't take anymore(she promises otherwise).
    - Wanting to "start over", in a new life.
    - knowing I'll never be "okay".
    - I'm still bitter hurting and after nearly eight years and don't see it changing.
    - I don't want to go completly mad or have someone say I am and lock me up.

    I have to sign off as my sister is right next to me but i'm sure i'll add more. :rolleyes:
