Discussion in 'Suicidal Thoughts and Feelings' started by attack_amazon, Jul 21, 2009.
Just out of curiosity. What motivated you to come to SF?
Just to talk to people about suicide in general.
Uncertainty about going through with a planned suicide... what the hell was I thinking.
I went with deppresion,without suicidal intent but since there was no with intent I picked that one
Uncertainty about going through with a planned suicide.
To discuss why you want to commit suicide, before coming up with a plan
To post about a crisis situation (past or present).
To find support for depression, with suicidal intent.
To find support for other mental health issues, with suicidal intent.
A combination of the above, actually.
I was searching for someone to tell me I was worth staying.
I'd just had enough of everything. Being betrayed my friends and family, life being made a living hell constantly, being bullied everyday of my life, I never had a father and that's why most of the bullying took place... my father walked before I was born, how is that my fault? A couple of other more personal reasons too.
anyway, I was really down, didn't actually want to kill myself but felt it was a way out. Then I came here, and now, would you believe it, I'm actually happy? Me! Happy =] This place has helped me, but not as much as the people in it.
I came because I was scared, and had no where else to go.
Wanted to save my life and recover from depression
mainly to gain some perspective and not feel so alone.
After my last attempt I googled suicide to find out why others were trying.. I found this sight and was curious..Once I read OP's reasons and the replies they were getting I stuck around. I soon found myself replying to others and it dawned on me that being here was good therapy for me..I have come close a couple of times since being on here and had friends step up and talk me out of it..So you might say the forum has saved my life and I try to help others so they can see the light at the end of the tunnel..
A friend of my family had just committed suicide and left in a note that he didn't know how to approach anyone with how he was feeling. So I joined to see if maybe I could help others who were struggling with some of the same issues.
I basically googled suicide for methods and found a few support sites, and eventually joined this one to find help. And I did! A lot of help! Helped me reach out before I could seriously attempt it.
Thank you very much SF! :love:
I do not have a single rational reason for being here, but I could say it is one of the few places I come to where I can express myself and not be condemmed for doing so.
I was googling methods, wasn't looking for forums in particular, just anything that would help me die.
I initially had joined the Psych Central forum but they had a strict rule about "No Suicidal Post" and since I couldn't express how I really felt, the forum there wasn't much help to me. But they had this forum in their links and resources so I came here hoping to find a place that suited me better.
I can't say that I was looking for help because my hope was already gone when I got here. Guess I was just looking for a place that related to how I felt. And this forum doesn't stifle people who want to discuss their suicidal feelings/plans/attempts.
I decided to join because of suicidal thoughts (without a plan to commit suicide), self Injury, depression, and other related problems.
Same for me. Nobody will change my mind, but its nice to talk to people who understand.
Same as Young Suicider.
I was really suffering at the time, a friend told me about this forum and has been on it for a number of years. I joined it in a last ditch attempt before I planned suicide attempt.
...and glad I did. It has really helped me in ways I can't explain.
When i first joined, it was simply because i was a member on another forum discussing similar topics, but for various reasons i wasn't safe saying some stuff on there, so i came here... i didn't stick around really, simply because i was worried someone would find out i had been on here, and the site name isn't easy to hide...
I came back because stuff now i have moved has driven me back down, and i guess i remembered that this was a good place, and that maybe i don't have to fall that far... even when there is no-one to help me, at least i know i can say stuff on here that people understand.
