    Has anyone ever tried to commit suicide? If so, how? Anyone think about it a lot?

    I find myself thinking about it more frequently every year.

    honestly? why? ultimately, it's not worth it. it's probably one of the most selfish acts you can do. i know i used to think about it when i was younger, but that was something i could never do because it would destroy the people i love.

    but i really want to know why you're thinking about it...

    Don't you dare!:mad:! If you do I'll kill you.:tongue:

    If you are serious and suicide occupies many of your waking thoughts then you need to see a therapist. You are clearly depressed and will likely need to be medicated in addition to therapy. Knowing you have a problem is one thing, doing something about it is another. This does not make you a bad or weak person. If anything it proves your intelligence, tenacity, and courage.

    My town just lost one of the most beautiful gay guys to suicide. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This kid who turned 18 exactly a month before he killed himself. He left his parents without any children now (they lost their younger son to a blood disease a few years ago). This kid had everything going for him and will be sadly missed.

    Suicide is the easiest way out. You aren't stopping to think of all the people you are hurting. Ripping yourself from their lives.. Please stop with the talk about this. I still have a huge open wound.

    I thought that was an awesome sentence. i agree with everything Think Kink said. f you have constant thoughts of suicide, you should go to a specialist, or at least talk to someone. it's never worth it when you destroy the ones you love...

    yes and I still have the scars on my wrists and I still look at them everyday, and Thank God I failed at trying to kill myself, and they are a reminder that life can only get so bad before it can start to get better,
    remember just hold on!! it will change but you have to want to make that change, I think my scars make me want to make that change every day for the better .... and you too can do it. you just have to want to not for yourself but for everyone who loves you, I dont know you but I love you!!! so do many others we dont say it enough!!

    I've thought about it many times. Never tried, though, as I'm still here...

    There's so another thread on this. It'd probably be best to consolidate.

    Ditto on the guilt trip crap. It actually does help, though. It takes my mind off suicide for a bit, because my attention turns to wanting to beat the hell out of those who just said it to me. Every time someone has given me that "suicide guilt trip" "easy way out" crap I have gotten extremely angry...

    Short answer yes.Long answer:I tried to commit suicide many times growing up couldnt handle the harrassment at school,had issues with my faith,felt desperate,and alone.I tried to slit my throat and wrists with a butcher knife but thankfully never full went through with it.Being gay it has been hell hiding that secret for 17 or so years.I tried one time to kill myself because I didnt want anyone to be shamed or embarrassed that my parents had a gay son.I just didn't want my parents to be ostracized or judged.I didnt want to embarrass my family or friends.I just figured in the long run that if I killed myself it isnt like the world would miss me because most people dont like or care for people who are gay.I just thought one less gay American the world wouldnt care.Thats just how most of society is.Suicide is a hard subject for me and this was even harder to bring up.All I can say is that it happened a while back and I have moved on from that dark empty despair thankfully.I wont lie though I still think about it from time to time but never try it anymore.:frown1:

    I think many gay guys have really thought about this issue. So many faced isolation and pain at being so alone as a child/teen. I thought about it so often becasue the pain was so great. I certainly have baggage from those years even today. But I also look back and think, "fuck yeah, what a brave little guy I was to just keep going." I don't think this is the answer to a problem...however people that say this without knowing this type of pain need to be careful about saying it is a cowards way out. I think this can actually have the opposit effect and propel the person foward as taking a brave last stand.

    Side note, I do think that assisted help for the terminally ill can be a blessing...yet I wrestle with the idea that physical illness is more legit somehow then mental illness. Interesting thread

    Consolidate the threads. It's important.

    tallguypns Read that entire thread all the way through (yeah it's long) but very worth it.
