Question about suicide.

United States
June 27, 2007 1:12am CST
This is for anyone who has any thoughts on this. There have been a few times in my life where I have felt hopeless enough to want to commit suicide. Thankfully, I never went through with it. My reason for not going through with it was that I was scared that at the last moment, when it was too late, something would happen & I would change my mind. Do you think this could happen to a person committing suicide, or do you think it has happened? Could you imagine those last few seconds of horror & regret when you realize you made the wrong choice and there is nothing you can do about it? I have pondered this question for about 10 years. I would like to know other's thoughts on this.

You know, life can't be that bad that you feel you need to take your own life. If you stop and think about it, I'm sure you are a very special person to many around you. Just think of the positive. I'm sure you have a lot to live for. Keep the faith! Good luck my friend!

I always thought like you too. But then I sunk low enough so that the things I really believed, didn't matter so much. I do try to think of the positive. I try to laugh as much as possible. One of my favorite sayings is, "What can you do if you can't laugh?" I have to laugh at myself, or I would cry. :o) I would rather see the comical side of all my crazy oddities.

What has you down on life? I'm a good listener. If you want to share that is. :] Trust me when I say "I been there and I done that." Everyone has a story. But, I still feel your life is important and I don't even know you. So if you ever want to talk, let me know. I'll give you my email. :]

Well, I don't think anything magical would happen by the time you'd be doing it. But I'm sure you'd see a whole movie of your life passing by your mind and you would realize how stupid it would be to do such a thing. You'd face all oportunities not taken in your life, you'd see all others that were right in front of you and you never saw them as you were close-minded. I think something would happen for sure, but inside you, inside your mind. I ray wouldn't fall from the sky or something like that, no, that won't happen. But expect a certain change in yourself. And if you're ever feel hopeless again, talk to me ... maybe I can help you see things aren't that bad at all =)

I do not think such a cowardly thinking comes to my mind. We have all grown in a family (9 children) and we see life as an opportunity to work, earn, enjoy, not to shorten it forcibly.

i think it is normal. You start appreciating life and feeling life only when you are going to lose them. Yes, it had happened, and usually it always happens in those last moments.
