    Just out of curiosity. What motivated you to come to SF?

    Just to talk to people about suicide in general.

    A combination of the above, actually.

    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.

    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 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.
