    Re: commiting suicide ?

    No need for a therapist or anything---I'm not going to take my own life. Ever. Plus I'm feeling better than I have in a while. From age ten onward I was in a painful period of denial when I started to realize I'm gay, but in March I started being honest with myself and it was the best feeling ever So I'm fine. And I don't see things going anywhere but up from here. Taking my life has always been the crazy thought that I ignored, the "no, I can't do that" thought, if you will.

    This is how I feel. I'm single, with no kids and live alone. I wouldn't expect my close friends, brother or sisters, nor my niece and nephews to take care of me.

    I have also suffered from depression and anxiety attacks in the past, so I know how the mind can lead one to contemplate suicide. Meditating on death is a normal part of life, isn't it?

    I have sat talking to many suicidal people...they take your energy..they have left me feeling great whilst I have felt depleted..midnight calls till the early hours of the morning..ringing me over and over again..and in the end topping themselves..

    They seem to have pressed a self-destruct button..and there was nothing I could do..(Samaritans!)

    Re: commiting suicide ?

    My sib's best friend, and someone my whole family loved, committed suicide at 22. Every night for weeks somebody would stay on the phone with him all night to "talk him through it," but the night finally came when nobody was home. And he did it. Carbon monoxide, of course; he would never have left an icky corpse. His brother had done that. Had told his little brother to step out of his bedroom and then put a shotgun in his mouth. Their mother used pills.

    Maybe there is a ''suicide'' gene...
    Many people I have spoken to.. who have suicidal tendencies have had other suicides in their close family environment..

    Could be that sometimes, kids emulate their parents. "Well, it worked for Mom so it'll work for me."

    What in that family could have been so bad that three people took their lives?

    I worked for the ''Samaritans'' for 3 years..I don't know if America has the same thing..

    I worked nightly from 10 pm to 4am..it was called the ''suicide watch''.

    Most of the people were drunk..split from boyfriend/girlfriend..it takes a lot of energy from you..you imagine all sorts of scenarios..

    Stupid thing was..my husbands best friend had a split up from his wife and was suicidal because she had gone to live with a close buddy of his..he called me night and day, came round our house where I would talk about whatever he wanted to..(my husband wasn't good at this!)

    I never refused to talk to him..night or day

    It was exhausting..I had twin boys at the time...

    One day, both my babies had the flu..and when he phoned me I said''I can't speak to you at the moment, I will call you back in an hour''

    In that time..he got a rope and hung himself in the garage..

    I still feel guilty!!

    ... Lets look at it from the depressed person's point of view.

    So, when the depressed person is weighing the misery they feel, which is enough to make them dearly wish to end their life, they are supposed to consider how it will make others sad, and continue their existence in what they perceive to be an inescapable state of abject misery? I am sorry if I think it is the survivors who would be the selfish ones thinking a depressed person should be thinking about them. The depressed person is living a black hole of an emotional wasteland, and are supposed to countenance living it indefinitely for the sake of others feelings? I think not.
