    .. from going through with suicide? I don't mean what's stopping you now, I mean, when you're on the very brink, literally have everything set up and are about to commit the act, sometimes we stop for some reason. If this has happened to you, what was it that stopped you?

    Other people may be able to use these things for themselves, when they're literally seconds from doing it. They can think back to this thread and remember the reasons they have to stop, maybe. Just an idea, but if could work for just a single person, it's worth it. So let's try and pull something together.

    If this thread already exists, delete this. I'm just too lazy to check right now :tongue:

    I divulged this darkest secret of mine to my aunt, I realize that if i actually go through with it, she would have to live with the guilt and regret for the rest of her life that she knew something was wrong with me and didn't say anything to any one in time to help, and someone else suffering because of something selfish I did, with out being there to apologize, bothers me.

    I know its a little weird but it works.

    My daughter. She has lost one parent to suicide. I've seen what it's done to her. I know what it does to those left behind.

    Due to my mood swings i am more impulsive, i don't plan and prepare.

    As for what makes me change my mind...i remind myself that i am connected. My death would leave lives shattered. My mother, my father, my twin. I just remind myself that there are people who love me and my death would destroy them.

    I've lost someone to suicide. It's not the kind of pain you ever get over and i would not wilfully inflict that upon anyone.

    Then i just take some meds to knock myself out and i usually feel slightly more human after having a sleep and time to calm down.

    Im the same way. I dont wake up everyday wanting to die. My mood swings always get the best of me. It would be unplanned. And then I think about how it would tear my family and those around me apart. I know they actually care and losing me would kill them.
    As for what truly keeps me going,it would have to be 4 year old sister. That little girl is the world to me. She looks up to me and tells me im her hero. Taking my own life would destroy her.

    Fear of failure pretty much. I grew accustomed to my sadness and sometime it isn't as bad, well that's what i keep telling myself. Well fuck that shit! I need to face the music.
