Were there ever a point in your life when you contemplated suicide?

I tried it twice..a neighbor discovered me.
@NudasPriest Indeed. Miss Liz was an amazing woman.

Been thinking about it an AWFUL lot lately 🤔

In '97 when my wife ran off with her coworker, just before she slipped town and went out west it was Christmas and I became rather despondent so I went out into the garage, closed the door and started the car and sat there listening to Christmas music. After about an hour I said "Fu@# this", went inside and spent all night making Christmas cookies for the ladies at work. As fate would have it they were unbeknownst to me having a cookie exchange the next day and I was swamped with cookies.

@Tastyfrzz Awwww...a cookie fest? That is a positive out of a negative, sweetheart...glad you never did anything....

...'cos then you wouldn't have met ME! And...that just wouldn't be fair....

@Tastyfrzz This is one of the best things I read on SW so far.
SammyJo · 51-55, F
Yes.....I was raped in the nineties....and spent an agonising 3 month waiting for the HIV result. I went into meltdown...smoked cigarettes constantly, drank vodka like crazy, did coke like it was going out of fashion...

Only thing that kept me going? Honestly, my daughter, and watching 'The X Files'...

Luckily, the result came back that I was that was a relief..

@SammyJo I am so sorry for what is happening to you. 😐
AlyAngel · F
@SammyJo I am so sorry. I am glad you tested negative.
Tastyfrzz · 61-69, M
@SammyJo Those were scary times.

@bijouxbroussard The world is better with you in it. 🤗
Slymbo · 61-69, M
@SwampFlower Absolutely!
Abstraction · 61-69, M
@bijouxbroussard Thank goodness you're incompetent at something. ;)
AlyAngel · F
Yes, survived 4 attempts
DragonFruit · 61-69, M
SammyJo · 51-55, F
@AlyAngel Glad you didn't succeed, honey...

JupiterDreams · 31-35
Yeah... Most recently, yesterday tbh
AlyAngel · F
GunFinger · F
Yes, but I couldn't because I can't think of any decent person who could take good care of my children. No one loves them as much as I do.
GunFinger · F
@SammyJo 🙂 thank you.
Slymbo · 61-69, M
@GunFinger Glad you made that choice.
GunFinger · F
@Slymbo same here. Nothing more rewarding than seeing them grow up.

When I was younger

I was married very young and trapped in a very abusive marriage. My family were all strict religion who believed marriage was forever. I could see no other way out so I tried twice until finally someone helped me.

Mostly when I worked in Pound Land.. same awful album being played on loop everyday, staff were stuck up and thought too much of themselves despite having one of the crappiest low paid jobs ever, customers were rude and made drama about really miniscule things.. I didn't really have any other options but to work there.

Everyday the bus went past the cliffs on the way there and many times I thought about just getting off the bus and jumping.

That was probably my most likely time.

Off and on since about the age of 11. 🤷‍♂️
@SW-User I know saying I'm sorry doesn't take it away, but I do know I'm grateful you are here among us still.
I had a plan to do it a year ago, I was going to self immolate. But a change of life gave me a change of mind and change of heart.
cd4259 · 61-69, M
Sadly yes but I managed to get past that and learn to live with the cards that life has dealt me.
Paintedfox · 36-40, F
I think about at least once 50% of my days. I cant. I would never leave my son, but yeah.
DragonFruit · 61-69, M
I’ve thought about it, but talked myself out of the idea....came to the conclusion that I’m not suicidal.
Have lost friends and family members to suicide, though. 😢
AlyAngel · F
Loretta78 · 41-45, F
Yes, twice in my life.

The first time when I was 15 years old and now, in my current phase.
SammyJo · 51-55, F
@Loretta78 Awwwwww...hunny! xx

basically the past 45 years I thought of it too often. only once I set out to do it, but my inner gut stopped me from proceeding.
SammyJo · 51-55, F
@cycleman Good that you stopped....

CrazyMusicLover · 31-35
No. I just fantasized about it which always brought me relief so eventually made me feel better. I never thought about suicide in a serious way.
The worst part for me was always waking up a few hours later... unsuccessful in my attempt.
LadyJ · F
Yes years ago..but not now i wouldnt put my family through that
passingby8 · 31-35, F
When i was 19,later again a few years ago.
JonathanC · 61-69, M
Nope. We'll all be dead soon enough. Just have to wait.
Yes and I'm sure I will in the future.
Yes. It was a difficult time.
amelia25 · 26-30, F
All the time

Tried once and have had many thoughts since my injury when depression and pain are at their worst. Even had/have a plan just in case.
No not specifically maybe slowly through substance abuse.
Sidewinder · 36-40, M
Yes, when I was 17 and I almost did, too.
PhantomMagic88 · 36-40, M
Unfortunately when I was a kid
Indeed, yes
Jeffrey53 · 51-55, M
uncalled4 · 56-60, M
Yes, during some down times. Never had the nerve to attempt it
Bushmanoz · 56-60, M

MethDozer · M
Yes, but in a half-heartedly angsty frustrated teen sense.
