Question did i attempt suicide? - September 23rd 2009, 11:47 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.

hai hai!
on my bike ride home from school today i was feeling down. i just finished a sad movie about what it was like in Jamestown in 1606 and it talked too much about death.i found that that triggered me. As i was getting to the street crossing, i didnt stop. My mind was racing and i was thinking i should ride bolindly into traffic. i only stopped at the last second, slamming my brakes and my foot, barely avoiding a van. I dont know if this was an attempt at suicide that failed. was it? and should i tell my councelor about it?

You really should tell your counselor about it. I think it would be considered attempted suicide but even if it is not you need to tell her.

i hav talked to my councelor and now i hav permission to leave the class if im triggered or find something triggering. to me i call this an imoulsive suicide attempt that i was able to stop suffering minimal damage compared to what would hav happened. i injured my shoulder trying to stop but bettr than being dead! i never thought anything else as i was about to. not about family, friends, life and everything else. it was a relief but in a bad way. i hope i never do that again

Technically it wasn't a full on suicide attempt, just a suicidal tendency. Same as if you drive your car over the speed limit for no reason (not even to have fun).

But good you talked to your counselor. And yes, Jamestown is terribly depressing and morbid.
