    If I ended my life my parents would be devastated and would have to deal with the trauma of finding my dead body, the funeral, wondering what they could have done; it would be incredibly painful to lose their son like that.

    I feel trapped in this situation. On the one hand life is unbearable and on the other I don't want to hurt my loved ones. My life is a prison and there's no way out.

    My parents were once a factor in my suicidal thoughts; however, I've begun to experience the severest depression I've ever had that's been ongoing for two weeks. My choice of method is a <Mod Edit, WildCherry: Methods>, but research of the survivors turned gimps and the possible pain experienced even in successful death scare me.

    Well, I've felt the same way before, only I didn't want to hurt and traumatize my little brother.

    Life isn't a prison, you know. It's...life. Everything you see on Earth is everything that we have. We as humans are caught between the gargantuan expanse of the natural universe and the void that is nonexistence. There's something here that can make you happy. I'm sure of it.

    And you know what something can make you happy? Yourself, man. If you just looked at yourself and saw what kind of good you can be, I'm sure you'll be happier.

    Everyone feels that way from time to time and why shouldn't you? To feel guilt over what you would put on other people is a positive sign that lets you know it is not the way you should end things and to seek an alternate solution, even if none appears to you at present.

    pizzadue you are so right about what losing you would do to your parents
    I came here when my son took his own life because life is over for me..
    when he died he took my heart and soul with him..
    I wouldn't wish this feeling on any other parent.

    I'm so sorry you feel so bad....I know that feeling so well..
    are you getting any professional help? meds?
    I hope you will stay and tell us more about what got you to this point. *hug*
