    Default To The Person Who Feels Suicidal But Doesn't Want To Die

    Suicidal thoughts are thought of in such black-and-white terms. Either you have suicidal thoughts and you want to die, or you don't have suicidal thoughts and you want to live. What most people don't understand is there are some stuck in the gray area of those two statements, I for one am one of them

    Wow, this article is fantastic! So insightful. Reminds me of a guy I once spoke to who had attempted suicide and he said
    "I never wanted to die. I just wanted my pain to stop. Maybe if I hadn't had constant messages that I was a burden and not the son my family wanted I wouldn't have tried it. I just wanted someone to treat me as a human being of value. "


    I'm so sorry you feel this way houghchrst!!!

    having read the article, I can relate. But what does one do when one does not have anyone? I never got the art of closing the deal on a relationship, too shy i guess, But it sucks. Heading into the holidays, is Scary. Wish me luck

    @houghcrst man you are strong! And the passage that @funnylegs4 shared is really uplifting. So how are you doing man?

    I for one am hanging in here. Yes Alex the holidays are scary but this year I feel a bit at peace with things. I only bought gifts for my boys and my closest three friends. Oh and for the brother that still loves me lol. I miss the big family gatherings but I do not miss the stress of it. I am lucky, I have my boys around me in my Covid Bubble so I am not too terribly lonely. Alex you are not completely alone. You have us. We care and are always glad to hear from you.

    Choco things have not gotten any better since I posted this but I get by day to day. I have to. This Covid scares me and I am sure it will just take time before everybody has had it or gets it. Just different levels of it. I will wait for the first responders to be guinea pigs when it comes to the vaccines before I even entertain the idea.

    I feel that 2021 is still a struggle with the C-virus. I am still worrying a bit but I guess it is what everyone feels. I wont be getting the vaccine too, still scared of its effects, probably after 2 yrs.

    Hi there Soiled. I am sorry that you too are struggling. At least you are not alone. We are all here for you. Hopefully January will pass relatively uneventful minus the election results.
