Unhappy I need to escape - December 5th 2012, 10:37 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

So this is the first time I've ever thought about killing myself. I've cut before but I've never wanted to die by cutting. Tonight I lay in my bed with my blade in hand just thinking about how easy it would be to just drag across my wrist a little to hard or how easy it would be to get my scissors and stab myself with them. I have one person to live for but I can't keep talking to him about my dirty habbit, he's getting down about it.

Anyway I guess what I'm trying to get at is I Need Help. I Need To Know This So Called 'Life' Is Worth Living

Hi There--

It is concerning that you are thinking about suicide. Is this something that you are really thinking about like Do you have a plan? Cutting is never the answer to any problem. I know that you may feel that it is the way out and that it will help you feel better but its causes more harm than it does good. I would suggest that you look at TeenHelp's Alternatives.

Here is the link to the Alternatives...

If you need to talk just send me a PM.

Please don't kill yourself tonight. Or any night. Because as 'down' as your friend may be, he still cares about you to the fullest. I know it. And I believe that you have a lot of other people that would mourn your death has much as your friend. You're not as alone as you think you are. But my main point is this: try to get better. You never will if you don't try and want to get better. And I know you never said anything about wanting to be better, but I know it's something that all of us want. We want to be happy. So talk to him, but try to be optimistic. Also, try to make him feel better as well. I hope you feel better in the near future (and NOT because of suicide).

Hey there,

I'm Jay, and I must state an important fact, as low as you feel, how much the tempation arises, suicide is NEVER the way. Simply, life is worth living because just because it seems bleak, it WILL get better! Guarentee it! I know, I've been there, I attempted and I'm still here. Yes, the temptations are hard to resist but you MUST because you have people in your life who CARE for you! They don't want to see you waste your life in this way! Not any way which harms yourself!

Trust me when I say, if it isn't better now, it will be, just hang on as tightly as you can. You may come out bruised and beat up, but you'll come out of it!

Your buddy,
Jay.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.

Hey, Amy. c:

If it's the first time you've thought about suicide, you knew earlier in life that it's not the answer. You thinking of suicide is depression taking over. So don't let it. Realize how much you're worth, you are special. I know this is easier said than done but try to gain a more positive aspect on life. See all the beauty in the world, the sun, the beautiful stars at night. All the beauty in the world for us. Let nature remind you life was supposed to be simple. Make big efforts to make it as happy as possible.

Just because he feels down, doesn't mean he cares less. The fact that he feels down, shows that he cares. Imagine how devastated he'd be if you ended your life. That'd leave a bigger scar than him seeing you like this. He just feels bad seeing you like this. He wants you to be happy, obviously.
I'd talk to him, let him know loud and clear you hate that this is bringing him down. I'd explain your thoughts of suicide. Then after he knows, you'll realize someone cares. Use that comfort to start defeating depression. With him in your life, knowing what you're going through, you'll be able to do this. Then he'll feel so much better after you start feeling better. You could start by talking about depression to family or a therapist and of course, him.

Make sure you're eating healthy, that can play a role in mood as well. And I might mention, make sure you get enough sunlight, go for walks. Fresh air with sunlight is great. The sun induces a natural positive chemical to help you feel happier.

Finding some new hobbies to take your mind off things could help. Like...

Biking
Gaming
Music
Art
Movies
Tv


Just anything to lose yourself in. That'd make a difference I think.
And also...

Taking walks
Getting enough sleep
Having a good diet


Oh and please check out the self-harm alternatives link losthope gave out. You're worth it, check them out till you find something
that works for you. It can be a step to recovery. Might I add, recovery is possible. I know you can do this, honey.
Stay strong, Amy. <3 Feel free to PM/VM me if you ever need to talk.
