I have been having thoughts of suicide. I recently got my 2nd DUI and also lost me job. I have been lying awake in bed at night thinking what I was going to be writing in my final letter to loved ones. Is this a normal phase for what I just went through or is this something for more dangerous

Hey Joep54321, I feel for you. Do you have family? Or do you have somebody you can talk to? Thinking about suicide is always dangerous. Do you have a sponsor? Talking to somebody you trust would help. Open up, get advice, go to meetings. Even if you don't feel like it. Force yourself to go and talk. YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Just want to say, I just lost someone close to me to suicide - a sweet, sweet person. None of us, her family or her friends could get through to her. Her problems were bad, to be sure, but nothing that couldn't be changed with time. She is at peace, and for that I am grateful, but her family her friends are all grieving. She left so much devastation. If you are thinking of suicide, talk to someone - the hotline is very warm and they speak so softly and kindly. I called them when I was hoping to find a place for my friend to stay - in the hopes that she could get the treatment she desperately needed. I keep thinking of how things might have turned out differently, but for her, there is no more hope. But where there's life, there's hope.

Hi,
I want to say that I have experience struggling with thoughts of suicide and despair for many years. I want to reach out to offer comfort. One thing that helped me was to think only of the day I am in, not past, not future. Just keep thinking now. This is the only day that you really are living and that is easier to handle than all the past things and the future. I forced myself to get into a public place.... sounds kinda stupid, but, to read humor cards at a Hallmark or something.. Believe me, I could hardly put one foot in front of the other. Do please talk to someone who is not judgemental. Many won't understand. But, there are a lot of people who love you that you don't even realize.

I have had thoughts of suicide 3 to be exact and I have not gone through with any of them I just wanted you to know that now I have a counseler and I am working on getting better and trying to help others with this terrible thought I am not judging because I have no place to stand in that situation. I am not an alcoholic nor a recovering alcoholic I am a family member or in other words a simple bystander. My father is an alcoholic and when drunk he thinks of no-one but himself, my mother is a recovering alcoholic as well as my step dad they are both very helpful in this situation... although no-one can understand unless they have been in this situation which of course they haven't and all of my friends think I am crazy but I was just a kid during the first one. I have had my counsiler ever since and she is practically the only one I can talk to that doesn't start screaming my name in judgement. This world is not fair but it IS the one we have to live in so please make it last! I hope the best for you in all that you do, but instead of suicide try doing a sport, or music (I am a drummer so I get to rock to some hard jams when I am mad), or even go shopping for a jersey (I would be happy to go get a jersey) or what ever you like to shop for. I am not saying that it will make these feelings go away but it will put your mind on something else!


LOL(lots of love),
