|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.

|02 May 2005||Princess Oblivious||I don't know. I thought about tylenol when I was 14 but after going to a psychologist, he told me it would hurt (I think he was lying). I can't stand pain. Sometimes things pile up and it really feels like it should end. But I got over it and I want to gie you advice, but I don't know what to say because everyone's case and cause is different. Some people just want attention while others really need someone. I am a christian. I still thought about suicide. Don't blow me off because I think there is a god. All I can say is that it is really good to have someone to talk to sometimes. Find someone.|
|02 May 2005||Math Fire||I don't fully understand this site,but i noticed that all were interested in death but what about life after death. I will admit that death is something I long for. It is a mystery to me and I wish to read the book. But I would not seek after it without all that I know. I ask again, WHAT ABOUT LIFE AFTER DEATH? do you know the pain or joy that follows you once you cross its shores? The answers are out there, but false answers are out there too. Becareful to study about this trip that you so longingly seek.|
|02 May 2005||x-x Jo x-x||It doesn'y matter what age you are, suicide is still a big thing to everyone! To me suicide is a regular thought as i some times can't stand my life and need to get away. Alot of people would say this was selfish but to me its just someone trying to escape. We all have to escape some time. Pressure is one way to push a person to depression or suicide. I find i have alot of pressure, parents & school wanting me to do well, my friends and even people i don't even know. I first started cutting myself when I was 14, i had just broken up with my boyfriend who i loved so much i would do anything for him (i still feel like that even today!) but when i realsied i couldn't live without him he said he didnt want me! My bestfriend became very depressed which had an inpact on me. We both would cut our arms and even our legs! We both knew how each other was feeling because we knew everything about each other and were exactly the same! Soon it became an every day thing and crying as well.
Some other friends found out and said they understood but really they didnt. I think that must be the worst thing you can say to some one who hates their life so much that they want to kill them selves! Just a word of warning for friends of people like that!
Its your own life and you should be able to do what you wnat with it!

|02 May 2005||I'd Prefer Not To||Well, I must say that this is a very, very odd website. I, along with many others that have posted here, have thought about comitting suicide. But don't necessarily agree with it anymore.
I don't really feel like sharing my sob story with you all, but I sure as hell have one. I guess if you're smart enough, you'll be able to figure out what happened...
I would say that the best way to kill yourself when under 13 - or even over it, would be to overdose on narcotics and pills of equal strenghth. You might say that "Oh, who the hell would have THAT in their cabinet?" I do. They're 'leftovers' from when my mom was alive. Strong enough to partially elimate the pains of cancer. All of the capsules are full, too. Even better.
Pop all of the what, twelve bottles of pills? in your mouth, down it with some water, and you're good to go.
Of course, there is the possibility of getting caught in the process.
Well, i know that I just contributed to this website, but I must say that when I came across it, I was thoroughly disgusted. Suicide is a serious thing, and if you need help, then get it.
There ARE ways to obtain help for free; most towns offer free counseling from social workers. If you are a student, try talking to your school's psychologist. Or even a trusted adult. I know that this sounds pathetically cliche of me, but isn't it better than being dead? My theory is that when you're dead, you're simply just dead. I don't believe in God, so to me, there is no Hell or Heaven. Your body is simply 'turned off', almost like a machine. And your thoughts and internal workings are all gone. Sounds good to you? Well, think twice, sweetie, because it's not.
You're dead that way. I mean, usually if you're contemplating suicide, you're dead on the inside, so why not just balance every goddamn thing out and just be dead physically, right? Well, that doesn't really work, because then you'd just be a nonexisting drifter. And your life would just suck ten times more, well, because you'd be dead, your family having to pay all of your funeral charges, etc...
And if you're committing suicide out of well, hm... spite, then, what the hell is the point of doing it if you can't see the look on those people's faces? I'd suggest doing something that doesn't obscure your view from their reaction. Like, say, nailing them in the balls or something.
Anyways, this site is quite the odd one. I'm only 14, so what do I know, right? I came to this site originally looking for methods to do The Task, and am leaving it with this comment: This website is pathetically sad. I read some of the suggestions and almost laughed. "Throw yourself under a school bus." Well, most likely the driver would SEE you throw yourself under it, and stop immediately.
What a world of bullshit that we live in. Whatever, don't listen to this site. 'Suicide kit' my ass. This is pathetic, and I'm having a hard time believing that I am contributing to this mess of a website.

Why Do People Commit Suicide?
A suicide attempt is a clear indication that something is gravely wrong in a persons life. No matter the race or age of the person; how rich or poor they are, it is true that most people who commit suicide have a mental or emotional disorder. The most common underlying disorder is depression, 30% to 70% of suicide victims suffer from major depression or bipolar (manic-depressive) disorder.
Warning Signs of Someone Considering Suicide
Any one of these symptoms does not necessarily mean the person is suicidal, but several of these symptoms may signal a need for help:
Verbal suicide threats such as, Youd be better off without me. or Maybe I wont be around.
Expressions of hopelessness and helplessness.
Previous suicide attempts.
Daring or risk-taking behavior.
Giving away prized possessions.
Lack of interest in future plans.
Remember: Eight out of ten suicidal persons give some sign of their intentions. People who talk about suicide, threaten to commit suicide, or call suicide crisis centers are 30 times more likely than average to kill themselves.
What To Do If You Think Someone Is Suicidal
Trust your instincts that the person may be in trouble.
Talk with the person about your concerns. Communication needs to include LISTENING.
Ask direct questions without being judgmental. Determine if the person has a specific plan to carry out the suicide. The more detailed the plan, the greater the risk.
Get professional help, even if the person resists.
Do not leave the person alone.
Do not swear to secrecy.
Do not act shocked or judgmental.
Do not counsel the person yourself.
The Statistics of Suicide
Suicide is the eighth leading cause of death in the United States, accounting for more than 1% of all deaths.
More years of life are lost to suicide than to any other single cause except heart disease and cancer.
30,000 Americans commit suicide annually; an additional 500,000 Americans attempt suicide annually.
The actual ratio of attempts to completed suicides is probably at least 10 to 1.
30% to 40% of persons who commit suicide have made a previous attempt.
The risk of completed suicide is more than 100 times greater than average in the first year after an attempt - 80 times greater for women, 200 times greater for men, 200 times greater for people over 45, and 300 times greater for white men over 65.
Suicide rates are highest in old age: 20% of the population and 40% of suicide victims are over 60. After age 75, the rate is three times higher than average, and among white men over 80, it is six times higher than average.
Substance abuse is another great instigator of suicide; it may be involved in half of all cases. About 20% of suicides are alcohol abusers, and the lifetime rate of suicide among alcoholics is at least three or four times the average. Completed suicides are more likely to be men over 45 who are depressed or alcoholic.
Although they may not call prevention centers, suicidal people usually do seek help; for example, nearly three-fourths of all suicide victims visit a doctor in the four months before their deaths, and half in the month before.
Helping a Suicidal Person
No single therapeutic approach is suitable for all suicidal persons or suicidal tendencies. The most common ways to treat underlying illnesses associated with suicide are with medication, talk therapy or a combination of the two.
Cognitive (talk therapy) and behavioral (changing behavior) therapies aim at relieving the despair of suicidal patients by showing them other solutions to their problems and new ways to think about themselves and their world. Behavioral methods, such as training in assertiveness, problem-solving, social skills, and muscle relaxation, may reduce depression, anxiety, and social ineptitude.
Cognitive and behavioral homework assignments are planned in collaboration with the patient and explained as experiments that will be educational even if they fail. The therapist emphasizes that the patient is doing most of the work, because it is especially important for a suicidal person not to see the therapist as necessary for their survival.
Recent research strongly supports the use of medication to treat the underlying depression associated with suicide. Antidepressant medication acts on chemical pathways of the brain related to mood. There are many very effective antidepressants. The two most common types are selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs). Other new types of antidepressants (e.g. alpha-2 antagonist, selective norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) and aminoketones), and an older class, monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), are also prescribed by some doctors.
Antidepressant medications are not habit-forming. Although some symptoms such as insomnia, often improve within a week or two, it may take three or four weeks before you feel better; the full benefit of medication may require six to eight weeks of treatment. Sometimes changes need to be made in dosage or medication type before improvements are noticed. It is usually recommended that medications be taken for at least four to nine months after the depressive symptoms have improved. People with chronic depression may need to stay on medication to prevent or lessen further episodes.
People taking antidepressants should be monitored by a doctor who knows about treating clinical depression to ensure the best treatment with the fewest side effects. It is also very important that your doctor be informed about all other medicines that are taken, including vitamins and herbal supplements, in order to help avoid dangerous interactions. Alcohol or other drugs can interact negatively with antidepressant medication.
Do not discontinue medication without discussing the decision with your doctor.
