I could never commit suicide...It is against my faith as a Catholic and a mortal sin.
"God Bless Our Troops in Harms Way."
Jr High School was total hell for me and I thought about suicide more than once during that time. I never imagined how I would do it, thought, so I figure it was more of an escapist, shot in the arm pick me up, kind of thing than it was anything else.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
However, I was granted a bit of genetic mercy: a good enough brain to see it.
The trick for me (and for some others I know) was really to boil down my social circle to only those who got hives at the mere thought of peer pressure and shaming, throw all of my assumptions about how we're "supposed" to do life out the window, and start from scratch. Just build my entire way of living from the ground up through trial and error.
It took a few years, and I'm still ceaselessly tinkering with the dials in some areas of life, but I think the inability to conform to "socially condoned" modes of living and interacting with others is a major factor for a lot of creative people with a penchant towards mental disorder.
Even a lot of "normal" people wither underneath the pressure, over the course of decades. A highly sensitive person just has no chance.
The degree of departure required is going to vary a lot from one person to the next, but I know a lot of people who have found at least some degree of relief this way.
