Do you know of anyone who had commited suicide or talked about trying it ? How has the impacted your life and were you able to get over the pain and anger ? I have a child living with me that went through the pain of losing an uncle in this way . I feel she has adjusted quite well with it but it had a huge impact on here life about how she see's things . How has this affected your life and your way of seeing things ?

My best friend did 12 years ago... so they say. (long story) I was pregnant at the time it happened. I almost lost the baby and was really messed up for a long time. There isnt a day that goes by that i dont think about him. Not to mention, my oldest son is named after him. It is hard for anyone to go through anything like this. Young ones are the worse. I know with me, i couldnt sleep with the lights off for months. It felt like a night mare that wouldnt stop. I know it tought me that i have been there, and i sure wouldnt want to make any one else go through that. there is no way i could ever think of doing something like that now. it is to painful and something you will never get over. I wish you all the luck in the world, and all the luck to that child. It is painful!! some day the pain gets easier, but it never fully goes away.

I would not hesitate in saying that,every human born on this planet has thought of this atleast once in their lifetime, either in frustration or any other reason. Regarding the ones who succumbed to that moment, I would say, that it certainly affetcs the life all the indiivduals who were close to him. But after sometime, the wounds heal and things move on.

i have known a few who have acutally gone through with it and many who have talked about it. Losing someone you love, especially in this manner, is something you never fully recover from.

My mother tried to kill herself a couple of times, taking pills and detergent solutions, I was around nine or ten years old at that time, I saw her in a very bad state, vomiting, crying, it was terrible for me. I was too young to know how to call for emegency help and called my dad to come home, she was struggling for about over an hour before my dad reached home and send her to the hospital. I have another friend who tried to kill himself by taking pills, he ended up in hospital, manage to save his life but has serious damages done to his health. I guess it's not a good thing to try to kill oneself, there is always a solution or someone to help, all one need is to ask..

Thank you for sharing . That is hard for an adult to have to face so I can't imagine the fear it would have caused a child .

i have a friend who attempted, but he survived. actually, he said his mother just found him after slashing his pulse. it really saddens me. and now that i remembered him again, i just hope his Ok. though it happened years ago, i know the experience and the pain have not left him. fourtunately, he's very strong, you know, he had survived it and now, well, there are still a lot of problems he's facing... i just hope he's ok. though i'm quite sure he can handle those things...i'm worried about him, and i miss him.

Oh I wish I could say something to make you feel better about yourself , I am so sorry to hear about how hard things have been for you in the past and how you are still having a hard time coping . There are many people out there who love you though and want you to still be around . And YOU are DEFINITELY NOT a physco , you have an illness like anything else we can get in life . You really need to be able to talk to someone , anyone . I know it is easier for me to say this then for you to actually be able to do it but you really have to be able to find help for yourself and to know that you are really important in life . I understand how you are feeling as I have been in this place before in my life and have never forgot how horrible I felt and would like to wish you all the best in life with getting some help and feeling better about yourself . YOU are a very good person and shouldn't feel so bad about yourself but this is the illness doing this to you and there really is help out there . God Bless :) Thank you for your response .

Thank you for your response , but the truth is even looking for the attention that is a sign of depression and you were lucky enough to be able to feel better for yourself as it does not always happen this way .

My baby brother hung himself. He was 29 years old. The regret and remorse that I feel still eats away at me. I still ask myself, "What should I have done?" "If only?" But it doesn't help. Crying now, I feel that if I would have only picked up on his signals, then, maybe I could have intervened. But I don't even know if there were signals. It happened so, fast. It happened to someone, that I would have never have thought, would do something like that, not to mention to just think about it!

I am so sad to hear about your brother , but you do have to realize that there was nothing you could have done to help him as it is so hard to see the signals and some many miss them as your brother would not have been able to talk about how he was feeling . I am really sorry for your loss . Thank you for your response .

I had an aunt or I think she was an aunt. A relative who had depression and she killed herself by hanging herself a few years ago. It was really sad. I think its really sad when people try to take their life too early before its their time. My sisters friend's mom was also depressed and killer herself I believe 2 years ago now. It was a terrible thing for her family and really hard on her. My cousins best friend jumped in front of a train and killed herself. It made my cousin SO depressed she also TRIED to kill herself. But God kept her safe. She was trying to overdose but instead she just threw up. I think she went to a psych place for a while she said. She said the crazy people were scaring her cause she was really young like 14 there. I know on occasion I have though it would be better to die then live. But I've never gone through with it. I've thought about it but I dont think its right and wouldnt actually ever do it.

When I was younger a friend of mine killed himself and his older brother found him. He was still alive at the time but the brother was not able to save him. It was very traummatic for him and to this day it is very hard for him, he feels guilty. I feel for this young one you are talking about, it is so confusing when something like this happens, I belive it is much harder than loosing someione to a car acident or a heart atack. I will pray for you and her and that she is able to move past all of this !

When I was 3 one of my paternal uncles did. But as I was so small I don't remember him at all let alone been affected by it other than I've seen the impact it's had on his children. My mother has tried before. I can't say that I'm surprised (infact I'm surprised she hasn't tried again) and I'm still dealing with her issues. I struggle with it everyday. My sister also tried once when she was about 15. She was a cutter (unknown to us at the time) and made a huge gash in her arm and took an unknown amount of aleve. She's doing great now. No more cutting and the thought of aleve makes her sick. That was one of the hardest times in my life. I lived 3-4 hours from her at the time. She lived in IN with my mom & step dad which was 4-5 hours from our dad. She was going through so much and we didn't even realize. That was the changing point in my and her relationship. We became a lot closer. I had always mothered her since she was born but this made me see her and treat her as a sister instead. My mom ended up moving her and my sister back to the town my dad lives in and things greatly improved. She was around old friends and all of our family (except me). And as far as talking about it - I did a lot too when I was a teenager. I just needed help and didn't know how to get it. When my husband came into my life - things got much brighter for me (we're high school sweethearts).
