fear of being mutilated to the point where i wouldnt be able to attempt again.

and a lack of acceptable methods.

not much else stops me. if i could wipe out those two things i'd have a date ;)

At the risk of being too religious on here, my honest reason for not killing myself is that I'm afraid that if I take my own life, what comes next will be worse than this life.

Being in shock.

I'm still in shock. When i come out of it, then will it be time. Perhaps i need someone to throw ice water on me.

My fiancee and my mother. What happens to them if I do it? How much pain are they going to have to go through because of what I did? Asking myself those questions makes me keep those thoughts at bay. If I ever lost my fiance though and something happened to my mom, I'm definitely dead.

I have multiple reasons but chose other because my biggest reason for still being here is my dog. I know that might sound silly... but she pines for me if I'm away from her for a week. I can't imagine what she'd do if I were gone for good. The closest I ever came to going through with it... I snapped out of it when she scratched at my door.

My other reason is fear of failure.

other. It's two things, mood dependent.

During my better moments: Unfinished business. Unfulfilled potential. Possibility of recovery.

During the low points: I don't care about any of the aforementioned. At these times I suppose the answer is procrastination.

I can't do it because of my daughter and grandaughter.. My daughter is suicidal also,..She would follow my foot steps.. That would leave my grandaughter alone..

It is only a biological drive for me. It has been decided that this life would be wasted since i was born. Being on the forums maybe, music, chess online... my life is more or less this.

Right now it's my psychologist. She gave me an ultimatum and although it's tough I'm doing what I can to fully cooperate with her. I really don't want to lose her support.
