Question how many of you have actually try to commit suicide? - April 13th 2010, 02:13 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I know many of us are depressed stressed or simply feel lonely, But i've wondered how many of you have actually "try" to commit suicide and failed?
i, personally, think about commiting suicide regularly, ive even been planning on how to do it, but ive never actuallyt "try" to do it, Why because theres a part of me that stills wants to stay in this world, even though things and people bring that"little part of me that stills wants to live" down everyday.

I think this should be labelled as triggering.... lol
But, I personally haven't tried - but I carry an escape route around with me.


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

I've never attempted suicide, though I've come close several times. At this point, I feel like I'm through the worst of it and I don't think about suicide nearly as much as I used to. As a diabetic, I have the ability to painlessly kill myself at any time, and I think the fact that I haven't tells me I still have something to live for.

I attempted, and would have succeeded had my mother not found me. The ambulance took me away and they told me I would have died in 72 hours. I don't think about suicide a lot any more, hardly ever actually. This was last summer.

I've half attempted once, didn't go far enough, went on a walk in the early hours and fell asleep so didn't have chance to try again.
I've nearly tried again but a friend stopped me.
But I do have an escape route in my bedroom draw...

I've started to once or twice, but always ended up stopping myself at the last minute before I'd need medical attention =/

I've attempted suicide 3 times in the past. Luckily it's not so much of an issue anymore.


Who do you carry that torch for, my young man?
Do you believe in anything?
Or do you carry it around just to burn things down?

Meet me tonight on the turnpike my darling,
where we believe in everything.
If we sweat all these debts then we're sure to drown,
so let's strap ourselves up to this engine now
with our God who we found laying under the back seat.

I have strongly considered it more than once, and I have half-heartedly appeted before. Like I was trying to see it would possibile to end my life in a certain way at a later date and found the answer to be yes.

Attempted 2 times, got stopped the third been in hospital for 72 hour visits twice.


2 of the three times were from cutting, never needed stitches but once lost quite a bit of blood, was admitted one time no one found out the 2nd.

2nd time being hospitalized my friend called the police and they found me sitting on the edge of a bridge, I don't really know what was going threw my head at that point, i just knew i was waiting for some thought to run threw my head that finnally pushed me over. It never happened I guess

I have in the past.
When I was younger.
However, I now realize how precious life is.
And am very thankful that my sister found me all those times and took me to the hospital.

once. and i still think about it. but i have someone now to lift me up.


" One day at a time, this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering. "

i wonder when i'll finally jsut start accepting myself, when i'll stop saying i wish i could be like that person.

i have facebook, and myspace. and you can ask for it. :P

I tried when I was 14 :/ I took loads of pain killers. It didn't work (obviously) and it just made me sick. I think I didn't take enough.
