what are the chances, if any, of surviving a 700 foot drop? because i dont want to end up like a parapalegic or a vegetable or something.
Im sorry if this question is out of line but im just having one of my REALLY bad days, and the cliffs outside my window look so inviting.
You know its kind of sad that the only thing that has stopped me so far is my dog. Since i dont know anyone else i would have no one to take care of her if i was gone. This means she would have to go to the pound and would probably be mistreated and/or put to sleep, and i cant stand the thought of that. She is my only friend and thought of putting her through pain because of my actions is unbearable.
anyway, im just rambling. sorry if i wasted your time on me.
Your chance of survival depends on many factors. What is at the bottom of the cliff.. water, grass, rock? There are safer, more efficient, and even harmless suicide methods I could provide you, but I don't believe I will do so because I'd prefer if you stayed alive. What makes you want to die? On the other hand, what makes you want to live? Your dreams in life.. if you could have any wish in the world, what would it be?


hey your not wasting anyones time here..i dont think there is any chance of anyone surviving a fall like that..whats going on? whats making you want to do it?
im glad that your dog is keeping you here everyday...

pretty much ive been screwed over by the world and by myself. Ive been in prison for a crime i didnt commit. Which has left me with crippling post traumatic stress disorder. I am way too shy and emotionally battered to even attemt to court a woman anymore. This is because the few times i tryed as a teenager i was treated with utmost contempt that i would even think about trying to talk to them. This, of course, caused my self esteem to shrivel up and die. Which in turn caused me to sink deeper and deeper into alcoholism, where im am horribly stuck in to this day. I also have no friends because the few i had left when my depression became to stressful for them.
anyway, i am going to go out now and have a ciggarette and ponder what i am going to do tonight.


The biggest loser ever to live.
One thing I can say is that you aren't wasting our time at all. We chose to use our time to come here and give you support in any way we can. :smile:

Ha ha ha well questions and answers come to mind but that is against the rules here.

So whenever you feel bad and you dog is around give it a hug. That is what I do with my kitty. I get depressed and I lie there and she comes up to me and I snatch her up and snuggle with her till I get back to feeling... ummm well not sad or depressed.... but not happy that in between point.
well, ive decided to stick it out another day. not that anyone really cares what the fuck happens to me.
Dude, it might not seem that way, but I care. I am suffering from depression SH & S thougts, but when I read stories about how people keep on going it makes me feel that I can survive this.

I hope you will decide to keep on living, one day at a time. Also, there are many people out there that could become friends with you. Me forexample, we probably live far apart, but I can listen.

Good Luck

seem like you 've got a beautiful view
Why not enjoy it?
Try to think of good things when looking out your window

Maybe your thinking will change
bad rotten feelings will disappear


Too much, obviously there's alot of people that care for you here. Plus these are people that have been there.

You mentioned alcoholism. That in itself depresses people.

You may want to tell me to shut the heck up, but if you have an AA group near you maybe you can give it a try. People in that program will bend over backwards for you. They also understand. In fact AA is a great place to meet people. I know it sounds crazy, but i can guarantee you you'd make friends there. True friends.

Meanwhile I can tell you a friend of mine three months ago had her daughter jump off a second story building. Miraculously she lived. This kid spent all those three months in the hospital. She now is at least walking, but with a cane, and she is blind in one eye. That's not counting her collapsed lungs and other broken bones.

That young lady NOW is so sorry she did that. She fought to live.

PLEASE, have another ciggie and then another, and know there's better days ahead. Plus "friends" can mean alot of things. My mom always said as did my grammy and her mother "You only need one person to love you in this here world". You do. Your dear doggie. Peace.
Honestly, your chances of survival are probably pretty slim considering the distance. When I was a kid, I used to dream of being an astronaut or pilot that was ejected from the craft, and then drifting back into the edge of the atmosphere and getting sucked back down to earth by gravity. I would always jolt awake in bed just as the freefall began speeding up considerably, it felt terrifyingly real. I would like to try skydiving some time.
