This is a really touchy subject, but has anyone in the pit ever seriously thought about ending it all? Its been a while since I have. I'm really down lately, but not suicidal like I used to get. Everyone thinks I'm this really laid back happy dude without a care in the world. I've never really talked about these thoughts with anyone, I think I'd feel a bit better knowing other people are struggling with the same problems as me.

Suicide is a no-no.


I'm sure it's crossed a lot of people's minds, but never seriously
Oh f*ck it,
I'm gonna have a party.
I had the blankest year,
I watched life turn into a TV show.
It was totally weird.

Most people go through at least one stage like this during adolescence. I donno, it's hard but when you come out the other side you might be all the stronger because of the experience

i thought about suicide. i went dangerously close to going through with it too...then i realied life would get better, and it doesn't matter that life probably means nothing, at least I get to live it.

Think - smoking pot means nothing, but people still do it for enjoyment. Same with life...only you don't get high, its the experience i am talking about

It happens, but if it gets worse, talk to someone. Talk to anybody. Just don't let it get out of control.

you're so funny.


anyway, i tried one time, with booze and pills, and i apparently didn't do it right.
i took it all before i went to bed without telling anyone goodbye or anything...
i woke up the next morning with red eyes and a throbbing headache and a sore throat,
and i recall having the scariest dream of my life that night.

i pretty much appreciate life now.

i ask "what if?" quite often, but never contemplate actually doing it. if i do it, i want to go out in style. like Eugene in the movie "Wristcutters" who pours beer on his guitar onstage and causes an explosion. but if i feel to end my life ever, it would be because i feel complete, not that i'm depressed.

Mate, I've been there, and it's not a nice place. The best thing you can do, and I'm not shitting around like I normally do here, is to gather up your courage and see a psychiatrist or psychologist. They don't work for everyone, but they work for more people than not. I kept up the happy, laid-back thing for about 7 years, then I saw a psychiatrist, and now I'm the best I've been in years.

Seriously, if you're not into the medication thing, you still need to talk to people close to you. And although it's hard, the best people to talk to are proffessionals. Tell your parents as well, but having someone who is trained to help you, knows how to listen, and can give you suggestions or help, even if it's just techniques to regulate your mood, or an objective ear, does wonders.

Seriously, are you so insecure with your sexuality that you have to be a dick to somebody that might have a problem?

ps, being a dick doesnt make yours any bigger.

i find that i think about suicide the most when i'm overwhelmed, not when i'm depressed. i find that i have control over my emotional state, and that i can handle depression. but i feel a lack of control sometimes for the things going on around me, and i don't want to deal with it sometimes. i'll think "suicide" for a second, but i realize it would be stupid, people need and love me, and it wouldn't be fair to them, and it really isn't that bad a situation i'm in.

They're just trying to put things in perspective. If people in Africa aren't killing themselves because of the things they're going through, some depressed teenager in New York doesn't have good reason to do it.

I'm sure your not the only teenager who's ever had thoughts like that.

I've been struggling with very bad depression for about 2 years now. There were quite a few events in my life in those past 2 years that felt unbearable, and I've wanted to end it all on many occasions.

But the thing is, I lost my aunt due to suicide about a year and a half ago. I know what it feels like to lose someone you love to suicide, and I could NEVER put my loved ones through what she put my family through. I eventually realized that it is a very stupid thing to do.

I hate it too. Kind of makes me wish some governments would go over to Africa and annihilate the system of governments some of its countries have, as to finally do away with rebel factions that go under a blind eye and cause strife. Feeding the hungry only goes so far... you need to nip the problem in the root.

I never mentioned your problems didn't matter. I just think most of them are petty if the worst thing that comes your way is an existential crisis every now and then.

I think that only applies if you believe that there is ever a good reason to do it. I do understand the perspective thing, but it always just comes off like someone is telling another that their problems are meaningless.

thats probably the reason I'm depressed, I don't have any friends anymore. The clique I was in just kinda pushed me out, and I haven't been able to make any new ones for over a year now. If you don't like football or have a Bobby Hill haircut in my lil' hick town, there is no one to relate to...

and I feel guilty for being depressed, which sounds weird. I feel like as I white, middle class male with a home I don't deserve to be depressed.

idk, did anyone go to a health class and see some kind of social health/ mental health pyramid?

I've been pretty down the past week or so, but not to the point of thinking of suicide.

I used to toy with the concept a lot when I was in high school. Not out of depression, just out of philosophy. Thinking about the ability to control whether I lived or died, thinking about different situations where it would look accidental, where it would take less effort, things like that.

It was almost kind of empowering, the idea that I could control my own death.

Of course, I went through the phase of depressed suicidal thoughts, too. But those were years ago.

I'd go with King Krapp's advice then. This may sound silly, but you can also talk to people on UG (as long as douchebag's like StratPlayer don't keep popping up). Hell, if you ever need anyone to talk to about whatever, throw a message my way.

Besides that, I'm useless. The only time I've been depressed is when I'm extremely bored, so I keep myself from being extremely bored. I've always got a guitar to play, book to read, story to write, or a TV show to watch.
