|Reading these suicide pages you will find people seeking help and people offering their help. Some witness about suicide from real life experience, others who play along with me would pretend it's a children's game. Some make sick and cruel jokes about it, and angry people blame me for even mentioning the subject. You might also want to read my favourite answers.

What is the best way to kill yourself when you're under 13?
Quelle est la meilleure forme de suicide pour les moins de 13 ans?
|20 Jan 2007||Ashley||Before killing yourself, ask why you want to. Everyone has at least one person that cares for them. Don't you think that that person would miss you so much that they'd kill themselves. If you love that person, dont you care about their feelings.
If you say you dont have any friends and have been bullied all your life then thats too bad. Don't you want to experience your life to the fullest. If everything is going bad for you then why don't you stop thinking about killing yourself. Think about a way to make your life better.
Thinking about suicide is not all unhealthly. I've been molested and still have rough times but I can still get through my days.
I used to been an outcast, but i found someone that cared about me and i grew out of the phase.
Each and everyone of you should rethink about committing suicide. Give yourself a second chance to redeem yourself.
I'm a very good listener and if you want come see me.

|20 Jan 2007||NO!||Depression is one of the most common psychological problems, affecting nearly everyone through either personal experience or through depression in a family member. Each year over 17 million adults experience a period of clinical depression. The cost in human suffering cannot be estimated. Depression can interfere with normal functioning, and frequently causes problems with work, social and family adjustment. It causes pain and suffering not only to those who have a disorder, but also to those who care about them. Serious depression can destroy family life as well as the life of the depressed person.
Impact of Depression:
Causes tremendous emotional pain
Disrupts the lives of millions of people
Adversely affects the lives of families and friends
Reduces work productivity and absenteeism
Has a significant negative impact on the economy, costing an estimated $44 billion a year
Depression and bipolar depression are presented separately because of the unique problems encountered with bipolar disorder. Individuals interested in information about bipolar disorder should also review the information on depression, as bipolar disorder usually includes depressive episodes as well. Bipolar disorder was formerly called manic-depressive disorder. It is a type of depression, and it characterized by the presence of mood swings, especially "manic highs" that often result in high risk, self-damaging behavior. Most individuals with bipolar disorder have both depressive episodes and hypomanic episodes.
Depression is a psychological condition that changes how you think and feel, and also affects your social behavior and sense of physical well-being. We have all felt sad at one time or another, but that is not depression. Sometimes we feel tired from working hard, or discouraged when faced with serious problems. This too, is not depression. These feelings usually pass within a few days or weeks, once we adjust to the stress. But, if these feelings linger, intensify, and begin to interfere with work, school or family responsibilities, it may be depression.
Depression can affect anyone. Once identified, most people diagnosed with depression are successfully treated. Unfortunately, depression is not always diagnosed, because many of the symptoms mimic physical illness, such as sleep and appetite disturbances. Recognizing depression is the first step in treating it.
Nearly two-thirds of depressed people do not get proper treatment:
The symptoms are not recognized as depression.
Depressed people are seen as weak or lazy.
Social stigma causes people to avoid needed treatment.
The symptoms are so disabling that the people affected cannot reach out for help.
Many symptoms are misdiagnosed as physical problems
Individual symptoms are treated, rather than the underlying cause.
Clinical depression is a very common psychological problem, and most people never seek proper treatment, or seek treatment but they are misdiagnosed with physical illness. This is extremely unfortunate because, with proper treatment, nearly 80% of those with depression can make significant improvement in their mood and life adjustment.
Depression is a "whole-body" illness, involving your body, mood, and thoughts. It affects the way you eat and sleep, the way you feel about yourself, and the way you think about things. A depressive disorder is not the same as a passing blue mood. It is not a sign of personal weakness or a condition that can be willed or wished away. People with a depressive illness cannot merely "pull themselves together" and get better. Without treatment, symptoms can last for weeks, months, or years. Appropriate treatment, however, can help most people who suffer from depression.
The symptoms of depression may vary from person to person, and also depend on the severity of the depression. Depression causes changes in thinking, feeling, behavior, and physical well-being.
Changes in Thinking - You may experience problems with concentration and decision making. Some people report difficulty with short term memory, forgetting things all the time. Negative thoughts and thinking are characteristic of depression. Pessimism, poor self-esteem, excessive guilt, and self-criticism are all common. Some people have self-destructive thoughts during a more serious depression.
Changes in Feelings - You may feel sad for no reason at all. Some people report that they no longer enjoy activities that they once found pleasurable. You might lack motivation, and become more apathetic. You might feel "slowed down" and tired all the time. Sometimes irritability is a problem, and you may have more difficulty controlling your temper. In the extreme, depression is characterized by feelings of helplessness and hopelessness.
Changes in Behavior - Changes in behavior during depression are reflective of the negative emotions being experienced. You might act more apathetic, because that's how you feel. Some people do not feel comfortable with other people, so social withdrawal is common. You may experience a dramatic change in appetite, either eating more or less. Because of the chronic sadness, excessive crying is common. Some people complain about everything, and act out their anger with temper outbursts. Sexual desire may disappear, resulting in lack of sexual activity. In the extreme, people may neglect their personal appearance, even neglecting basic hygiene. Needless to say, someone who is this depressed does not do very much, so work productivity and household responsibilities suffer. Some people even have trouble getting out of bed.
Changes in Physical Well-being - We already talked about the negative emotional feelings experienced during depression, but these are coupled with negative physical emotions as well. Chronic fatigue, despite spending more time sleeping, is common. Some people can't sleep, or don't sleep soundly. These individuals lay awake for hours, or awaken many times during the night, and stare at the ceiling. Others sleep many hours, even most of the day, although they still feel tired. Many people lose their appetite, feel slowed down by depression, and complain of many aches and pains. Others are restless, and can't sit still.
Now imagine these symptoms lasting for weeks or even months. Imagine feeling this way almost all of the time. Depression is present if you experience many of these symptoms for at least several weeks. Of course, it's not a good idea to diagnose yourself. If you think that you might be depressed, see a psychologist as soon as possible. A psychologist can assess whether you are depressed, or just under a lot of stress and feeling sad. Remember, depression is treatable. Instead of worrying about whether you are depressed, do something about it. Even if you don't feel like it right now
|19 Jan 2007||Joey||Hey everyone. This may seem long, but take the time to read this and bear with me..My name is Joey and I'm 16 years old. I have been depressed for some time now.
The medicine, talking to friends, family, doctors ect. it's all bullshit. Nothing has worked for me.
My life is slipping away from me everyday. I'm failing school, my best friend that I have known for years betrayed me, my luck with girls? hah..they're all fake bitches.
So basically latley I've had the urge to kill myself, just end this shit. I'm tired of comming home from school everyday and just crying myself to sleep. Whenever something slightly starts to get better, reality comes crashing back down on me.
I've tried drugs, marijuana ect. It makes me feel happy but reality sets in after your not high anymore. I want this without drugs.
And God? I don't know what to think anymore. I've been praying for years for something reasonable. Not a million dollars or to have a dream car, but to just be HAPPY. Is that too much to ask for? HAHA I guess so.
I know and understand that my parents do love me, and that my hardships dont compare to most on this site, but I can almost guarantee that I feel the same way inside. I am emotionally torn, and don't give my trust to anyone because of past experiences. Sure all you anti-suicide faggots that come to this site and call us selfish and fucked up for thinking or commiting suicide, shut the fuck up. You don't know shit. It's not something we choose to be. It's how our brain and emotions work through past experiences. Why am I alive now? Basically because I have a feeling inside me telling me not to make this life taking decision. Why? I don't know. I always try to think about the future and that things will get better, hell I have nothing else better to do! Everyone says that things will get better, so I might as well try. I have no idea who is reading this now, and I can't gurantee that "someone loves you", but truthfully I care. I know there is someone reading this now going through what I have or worse. You don't know me, and you've never met me, but to everyone that feels what I have I do care. I wouldn't want anyone to feel this way and it makes me sad to think there are millions just like me. I've tried not to give my life story or make this a sob one, but i thought i should share this with you all, even though some is still missing. I've never opened up like this, but were all the same and I believe that for every hard time we have, there has to be atleast some good ones for the future. Well I'm done. If you want to chat, my email is xNoLimit680@yahoo.com. Peace guys. And here's a tip. Set goals of what you would like to be and what you want in the future. You CAN have it if you try..it helps for me. Bye all and stay safe.. =)
|19 Jan 2007||sarah||what the hell kind of question is this??
i dont know drowning in your own urine
|18 Jan 2007||remember to feel real.||you can't kill yourself until you've tried to live. and i don't mean live as in just wake up every morning and go thru the steps. i mean, try to find what makes you happy. look around. explore. the world is a very big place. there are so many things to do instead of sitting around and obsessing over suicide. i know how you feel. and i know that sometimes it hurts to wake up everyone. and sometimes its nearly impossible to look in the mirror and realize what your life has come down to. but if you have the means to go out and find what makes you happy, what makes you want to live another day...than put the razorblade down and go find that happiness. honestly kids, if your under 20, you really shouldn't be thinking about death. maybe your in a really bad situation...and you need to get out...than do it. get the fuck out. find yourself the life you want. if your scared to get out...than wait till your 18 or whatever...and then leave. get a job. get a career. find love. find happiness. find freedom. i haven't had a perfect life. i have secrets that i hide from the world. but all you can do sometimes is learn to forget the past. and i know that doesn't fix anything because at times the memories are so vivid that you find yourself yearning to feel the cold barrel of a gun on your temple....but just get thru those times. do what you have to do. live another day. who knows...maybe the next day won't be so bad. life happens once. death happens once. you can't take your chances on these kinds of things. you get one chance...just one. make the best of it. who knows...maybe tommorrow you'll get hit by a bus...and i bet at that moment you'd pray to god to live just a little longer. life wasn't suppose to be easy. no one said things were going to be served to you on a golden platter. everyone lives their own version of hell. and if it makes you feel any better...there is probably someone out there who is in a far more worse situation than you. and no, your not suffering because god hates you. it is useless to think that. does god hate the little kids in africa? is that why they are dying of aids?? NO! Sometimes the only thing you can rely on is god's love. So please, stop wallowing in self pity and go do something about it. if life sucks, than fix it. Not by killing yourself, but by finding what you desire. fill that void in your heart. not with a bullet, but with love and happiness and comfort and all those other lovely things. and you won't believe me when i say this, but i care about you. I don't care if you a 13 year old or a 31 year old. I care about you. and I don't want you to end your life. I want you to find happiness. I want you to be okay. Instead of going head over heals to find new and interesting ways to die...why not use that time and effort to find new and exciting ways to live. Just try to live...put a 100% effort in trying to live. Please, just give it a shot. And if your already planning on ending it, than there really isn't much to lose. Either you'll find happiness and realize that you want to live....or you'll be back here. And if you can look at me in the eyes and tell me that you have done all that you can do to live...and there isn't anything more left for you here....than i'll leave you alone, and let you decide what is best for you. But please...don't do anything your going to regret. Why venture off into the unknown...when you can be here. Just try it okay. Try to live. After that, just leave it to fate.|
|18 Jan 2007||you are fucking retarded wut the hell is your problem telling kids to kill themselves they dont have to be stupid like you wanting to kill themselves and instead they could live life at the fullest and have fun in there lives. i dont think you understand how many people this would hurt if one if these people were stupid enough to take your advice!!!!!!!!!!!! u better get rid of this FUCKIN site!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|18 Jan 2007||Scors-b||"When things are bad, we take comfort in the thought that they could always be worse. And when they are, we find hope in the thought that things are so bad that they have to get better."
I think this has to be the most true thing I have ever read. Take another look. This pretty much sums up why I'm still alive, and maybe it also does for you. No matter how bad things are, there is always hope. Hope is the most important thing in the world. Without it we would all be doomed - hope is what makes you study at school, take a job interview, try out for a team. Hope can make you get up in the morning and I suppose it can also keep you living a life that you really wish you never had.
For me, it feels like just whenever I'm maybe about to find the one thing that would make it all worthwhile, it just fucks up. It fucks up so much that I wish i was more than dead... because right now i can't even explain the pain and frustration. It's maddening, like a beautiful summers day.. but then the thick black clouds come rushing in from all four corners of the sky and fill the chest with deadening pressure. Uncontrollable, like something eating away at you from the inside. I just don't fucking like it. Get it out, before it eats my soul.
I just wanna be me and feel like thats ok. I just wish I could get to know 'me' before I keep trying to get to know 'you'. I just wish god would stop fucking around and just let me out. I wanna be free. So stop the fear and the pain and unlock me so i can get out. Let me out, i wanna get out.
Maybe if there was one thing i have learnt, it is that you have to look after yourself. Because no-ones really there looking out for you.
"No-one except yourself that is,
No-one except you"
So be kind with yourself (but not unforgiving) and remember that there is always one thing that can keep you alive- hope. Pretty shit I guess but then if you can accept this and forget everything else that you are living for life should be a damn sight easier.
If you've read this far and can see any sense in this post, email me.

|18 Jan 2007||kyle||the best way is to take an overdose on pain killer. take about 15 then anout 5-10 sleeeping tablets and it si the easiest way becuase you feel nopain,it is quick and easy! i tried it last nite but my mum stopped me and took every thing off me. If you want to try it make sure your alone!|
|17 Jan 2007||Mary||Try to think about the strengths in yourself that have pulled you through in the toughest times. Even though you are 13, there must be something in your past that you can look to for a way to cope. Be careful about drinking, because it is easy to fall deeper into the pit when you are drunk. It may even feel like you are swirling around the top of the toilet bowl on the way down the drain.
You must have something in there. You must have been able to do something really well when you were 6 or 7.
I used to be adventuresome and willing
to try new things. I am looking on this site because I was thinking about killing myself too. I also do not want pain. If you are in pain, why would you
want more. It is in that part of the pit where one is less depressed just enough to feel the strength to commit suicide.
If one can commit to suicide maybe one can commit to an inner strength they have forgotten.
I would say that if you are looking for a plan you do not have one yet.
If you are strong enough to look for a plan, you may be strong enough to look for that inner coping skill.
I would go into nature to have a little peace and quiet. This world is so chaotic, that it is hard to feel up for many people. I have made it to 54, and somehow, when I get to this point, I have chosen a different path.
Look around you. I won't bring up the starving kids, but maybe your neurosis will help other people to talk and work out theirs. I know you know this, but there is always someone worse off than you.
In any case, whatever the age, if you really want to kill yourself and not punish others, then think about the act.
It you are going to finish the job, you must pick a method that will finish the job. There are no guarantees about the pain aspect. You may think you have chosen the least painful method and experience otherwise. I used to work in the ICU. People would try to shoot themselves in the heart, and because we all think that you find your heart by saying the pledge of allegiance you aim where your hand was. Unfortunately the shot goes into your shoulder and leaves you alive and disabled.
at 13 you may feel you have lived long enough, maybe you have and this is meant to be. Is there no future?
Consider getting help.
Writing this has helped me to stop crying at least.
There are no over the counter pills that will kill you without horrible side effects if you do not use enough.
Let me know what you think.
|17 Jan 2007||Shalena||Hey, someting we have in common. Everyone tells me I"m beautiful, but I'm not alllowed to date, sleep over anyones house. My mom, I haven't seen her in 3 years or more, my dad, don't live with him, my step-grandma sucks...She said I need above a c to satisfy her basically, and the only thing I enjoy doing is playing guitar and singing, other wise, I could just DIE!!!! In 8th grade, I took a bunch of tylenol in the p.m. , and I lost my sight and was gonna die, but my dad called 911, and they put me in some mental hospital I felt awkward in, but now i'm depressed again and wanna die again, and I'd rather be in that mental institution than to be herre!!! I hope that helps... (When you take pills, you can feel your body slowing down, and you get really sleep!_)|
|17 Jan 2007||Ashley||I know what it feels like to feel nothing but emptiness and despair. To live in a constant state of numbness and neuroticism, and to feel alienated from not only those around you, but even yourself. I know the pain it feels when you look at yourself in the mirror and see nothing but error and fault, and to feel the redundancy of everyday life. Solitude at times can bring forth inspiration, but it has the uncanny ability to foster destruction... and here i am, living in a world of destruction; which started on the outside and worked its way in.|
|17 Jan 2007||Our English Language!?||A question I would like to ask everyone. The English Language is wonderful and exciting when written and spoken properly so why do people today abbreviate the words - not only in messages but when they are speaking? Some will probably answer it is necessary to abbreviate messages especially when using the mobile, but do they not realise this is now becoming the 'norm' in countless other spheres. I fear mobile phones are now too intrusive. How are the very young to grasp our language properly? To read and write correctly requires our language to be spoken perfectly - not as it is at the moment by most of the population.|

|16 Jan 2007||Ugh!||Oh boy... This is probly like the 4th time I posted here... well, I have a history (within the last 3 months) of suicide and cutting, first time, I swallowed 300mg of muscle relaxors, that really didnt do much at all, but it was all that was in the bottle... 2nd time I swalloed 1.3 grams (1320mg)of oxycotton, im suprised that didnt really fuck me up, the third time I slashed my wrist, but it wasn't deep enough because the knife I was using sucked.
well I doubt there will be another suicide attempt, but knowing how my moods change easy, I guess I have some mood swing problem... something like that, well the reason why I was trying to kill myself was out of boredom, and I thought I loved this one guy (im gay) but I was just attracted to him, and I still am, but I will probly always be, because hes soooooo hot. But anyway, I dont really know why I was trying to kill myself about it, but really its just the rejection (no I didn't ask him out, I know hes straight) and I felt ugly, because even if he was gay, I bet he still wouldn't wanna go out with a fat ass like me... but I do know, im not ugly, just fat =p anyhoo... fat changes, so its not a big deal, too bad I didn't think like that before, but anyway, I got back from the store, and my dad started drinking again, I fucking hate it when he drinks, he said he would kill me, over something stupid, I know its just his drunk side talking, but if he says that, you know he thinks about it alot, and that didn't put me in too much of a good mood. Oh well, I still didn't cut myself over it... (amazing, right?) if it were me about 1 1/2 months ago, I probly would have put on about another 100 cuts on my arm again. Or tried something, like swallowing pills, but its such a drag when u gotta drink charcol... I rarely have time to myself to attempt anything nowadays, but I am starting to just dislike dad... Hes so idiotic when hes drunk too, like he was telling me how lucky I must be to have a dad like him, because he was driving 80mph down a 35mph road and blasting this totaly fucking hideous song (something about rollin' on a river) and it was so horrible... Anyway, thanks for paying attention to my story.
