I'm feeling suicidal?
It feels like the end of the world at the moment. I am mainly hurting over a girl. But so many other things too. I just can' handle it. I am seeing a psychiatrist too and nothing is taking the pain away. I don't know what to do

Keep talking Ed. Even if you can't tell anyone everything at the moment, just tell what you can and eventually you will get to a point where you can cope with your life again.
Ring Samaritans. They will talk to you for as long as you want.
Write things down too, if there's things you can tell anybody write them down. Write down everthing you are feeling then at least it's out and you've started to put it into words.
Crying helps too. If there's someone you know that you can tell you are upset, but can't tell them the full story try and tell them just that - ask for a hug and have a good cry.
You will be ok. It will be very difficult for a while but keep telling yourself you'll be ok soon. All the best.

Relax, Life is always hard. Find something in life to look forward to, education or something. Anything in life like love and such depends on the other person to much, chance of failure to risky. But education and other things like that just takes you no one else plays any part in it so the success in it can't be taking from you. And girls are heartless don't put any effuses on them or you'll always be hurt, I have always and always will be hurt by them too. Can't change it, it's the way girls are they don't seem to care even about including their own selfs. Find something in life you like to do and focus on that, if you have good friends that would be nice. Hangout with them.


rkbrammer
I've been there. within the past few weeks- I was at the brink of suicide, and I overcame it. talk to your family, talk to your friends, and if necessary, go to the hospital. most importantly, get to a safe place.

PEOPLE ONLY CONSIDER SUICIDE TO GET BACK AT SOMEONE FOR THEIR OWN FEELINGS.
YOU ARE HURTING OVER REJECTION. LEARN TO ACCEPT IT GRACEFULLY. GET BACK AT HER BY NOT LETTING IT DESTROY YOU.
MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE, FORGIVE HER FOR HER SHORTCOMINGS, AND BE GLAD SHE IS SOMEONE ELSE'S PROBLEM NOW. THANK HER FOR SHOWING YOU THE TYPE OF GIRL TO AVOID IN THE FUTURE.
MOVE ON WITH YOUR NEWFOUND WISDOM AND BE GRATEFUL FOR THE EXPERIENCE.
EACH PERSON WE ENCOUNTER TEACHES US MORE ABOUT OURSELVES AND WHAT WE WANT OR DON'T WANT FROM SOMEONE.
DO NOT EVER EXPECT SOMEONE TO MAKE YOU HAPPY. NO ONE WANTS THAT KIND OF RESPONSIBILITY. YOUR FEELINGS ARE YOUR JOB TO MANAGE AND OWN.
BUILD YOURSELF UP BY MASTERING SKILLS AND BETTERING YOURSELF IN SOME WAY. IT RAISES YOUR SELF ESTEEM. IN THE FUTURE, DO NOT PUT ALL YOUR EGGS IN ONE BASKET AND BECOME SO EMOTIONALLY INVESTED IN SOMEONE THAT YOUR SELF ESTEEM IS BASED ON THEIR APPROVAL. THAT IS TOO NEEDY.
NEEDINESS AND DESPERATION ARE UNATTRACTIVE. IT TURNS PEOPLE OFF AND SCARES THEM AWAY.
GET HAPPY WITH YOURSELF AND OTHERS WILL WANT TO BE AROUND TO SHARE IT.

Get as much people support as you can. Samaritans, Doctor (you will be amazed how effective the right antidepressant medication will be), any groups that you can access via Doctor.

When I feel down two things help; the first is that no matter how bad ones own situation may feel at any time, sadly there is always somebody having a worse time.

I feel better knowing that I'm not the only individual who feels terrible, moreover there are people much worse off than me. Secondly, to focus upon what is good, what you have, not what you have not got, who you are, and not someone who someone else says you should be.

Remember that in life, there are some things you can stay in control of, and other things you cannot hope to control - like the end of the relationship you had with your girlfriend. All that you can do, is look after yourself and nurture yourself back to the health and happiness that you deserve.

When your depression is lifted, a life aim is good thing to have, something that you can work towards, that might be something you would like to do or be. You will forget sadness and who knows, when you least expect it, happiness may just come your way! I hope that it does. Take Care and bb4now xx

Yes you do know what to do...cos you have already started it...by talking to someone and asking questions instead of letting it eat you from the inside.

Talk to a friend, relative or doctor...and don't be embarrassed or affraid to aks for help. We all have a low tide but thankfully a high one comes afterwards. At this present time it's hard to grasp the reality of the situation and words of comfort sound just like words.
But believe me I'm glad I didn't pull that trigger 30 years ago. There is always more than "One soul mate" for every one and they are normally closer than you think. Keep a clear head to help you through this and if possible stay with some friend or relative.

Good luck Bro. email me this time NEXT year to let me know how your doing!

I understand the desparation and pain you are in, but in truth, only time can heal your pain, there really aren't any quick fixes. Obviously you loved this girl very much, even though you are hurting over her, realise that it is a blessing to have loved someone, and shows you what emotions you are capable of giving as well as receiving. Some people go through their whole lives never feeling that love. Please also know, that if you felt that love for her, you can feel it again, so although you need time to heal right now, don't close that part of yourself off forever. When you are ready, really look back on the relationship and think about all the good points in that lady that made you feel good, that fulfilled the needs you had, and all the things that were not healthy or good for you. Use this lesson to learn to find someone who fulfills not only what you want, but more importantly what you need.

When we are in this much pain, every other little thing in our lives can become a problem, things that we may, or may not, have handled before we got hurt in love. The whole lot weighs heavy on our shoulders. But try not to become overburdened by it all. Sure you may have a lot of problems, but rather than see the whole thing as one sorry mess, take each problem on its own, be strong with yourself and only deal with one of these at a time. Think about the problem, how and why it became a problem, what you can do to change the situation, what you can learn from it, how you can change it realistically, in other words, what will really help, how long will it take to turn it around etc. You must be strong with yourself and refuse to deal with more than one problem at once, particularly since the chances are you cannot totally switch off from the girl thing, so you will in effect be thinking about two problems already.

As for killing yourself, it is a cry for help, and I do not say that lightly. I am not saying you are seeking attention, just that you are in so much emotional pain and turmoil, admitting to having feelings of wanting to die is your way of saying it is the only way you can see of ending all the pain and heartache. If you did it, and suceeded, you may well end your pain, but think of the pain you would cause those who do still love you, your friends and family. That pain would never go away, they would feel they had failed you, they would carry that forever. If you tried and didn't suceed, you would probably end up feeling pretty stupid at best, or be seriously physically or mentally damaged, possibly for life.

You are strong, you just maybe don't know it, you will get through this. You are obviously capable of deep feelings and of deep love, you owe yourself the chance of finding that special person who can and will make you happy, but more importantly, you owe yourself the chance to finding happiness within yourself. It may not come tomorrow, or next month, but it is there somewhere, you just have to work towards finding it, taking literally one small step at a time, and stand there awhile until your legs stop shaking before taking the next step. One day soon you will look behind you and realise how far you have come.

You say you can't handle it, you can, you just need to find a different way of looking at it. Like I said, not as a whole, but as little bits, individually, give each problem its own time and space, don't try and fix it all at once, no one can handle that. As for the therapy, sometimes it seems you can be in therapy for ages, then suddenly, something clicks and you are on the up.

Whether you believe in God or not, the serenity prayer that is said by addicts at AA and NA holds much common sense, and whatever you believe, you should say it to yourself regularly throughout the day when you start to feel bogged down by it all, eventually, you will start to see what you can change, and how to do it, what you can't change and how to live with it, and the difference between the two. I personally think that even if you don't believe, God will pull you through, but even if you don't, just say the words, because they really make sense. The prayer goes like this "God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference."

I sincerely wish you all the best, I sense your pain, from what you wrote, and can only urge you to hang in there, none of us knows what is round the corner, don't deny yourself the chance to experience what may be fantastic. God bless.

NO ONE IS WORTH TAKING YOUR OWN LIFE. I just went to a funeral Tues because she took her own life. Everything happens for a reason if u 2 r not together its because there is someone better out there 4 u. I have been there before i used to cut myself all the time because it hurt so much. No I have found the man of my dreams and have been married for almost 4 years w/ a beautiful baby girl. Now I have to look at my scares and one day explain how stupid mommy was.

Think about why your posting that question on this website.

its because you dont know what to do or you dont have anyone to talk to.

You only feel the way you do because you let this happen!


As the great commediene Billy connoly would say

i want to die

fcuk this hsit i outta this world
why is life so unfair

thats it i am going to kill myself.

Its you against the world mate and honestly your alot stronger than you think.

You can go pull the plug on your life if you want,But it would be ashame!!!

Firstly, you have a cool name. I'm an Ed as well.

Secondly, the pain over the girl bit ... well, that's what happens when you love someone and they go. You feel sad and hurt.

I understand you saying that you feel you can't handle it, but believe me - you can handle it. You have handled loss before and you can handle this one.

At the moment, while nothing seems to take the pain away, all you really need to do is your housekeeping stuff - just keep up with work and bills and such and get to your psychiatrist each week.

Find another therapist (a cheaper one, perhaps) if you need further sessions, or even ring up the telephone counselling help lines in your area.

You can get over this and move on. In fact, there is a lesson for you in this. There may be things you would like to change about yourself. This is an excellent time to start making improvements and restructure your life for the better.


sluggo1947
Come on, ask yourself is she hurting over you? Nobody or anything is worth taking your own life.

I felt like that once, believe me it will pass, just say to your heart that maybe your real soul mate is thinking about you at that moment and she wont like that u suffer. Pain makes us to grow, try to do some charity work, that helps when your mind has something else to think of.

Babes, please go and see your GP and ask about getting some anti-depressents. Seriously, it will make you see things a bit clearer. Continue to see your psychiatrist. Things might seem this way now, but in time, there will be the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel!

Please... I know what you feel. My brother went all the way with it and the world was only made so much worse for it. Find the strength that is in you and hang onto it. Find the love of those who love you and never let it go. Fight the darkness you feel and know that the world changes. You have to find a way to stop dwelling on the pain and find the hope of tomorrow again. It will come. The sun will rise again in your life. You have to make sure you're here to see it. Call your doctor and be completely honest. Make him/her understand what you feel and listen to your own answers as well. It's hard. Life can be so very, very hard. The trials will pass though. Hang on!

Ring the Samaritans on 08457 90 90 90 they will just listen and not be judgemental.

The other option is to ring NHS direct on 0845 46 47.

These feelings will not last forever but I understand at this minute you probably feel they will never go away.

Take care

Ed, first off thanks for being so open and honest about your mental state on a public internet site. That takes an enormous amount of guts and is a really good sign that you're reaching out to people, even complete strangers, and still wanting to make connections with the world.

At the time of posting this answer, 36 other people had already responded, and every one of them was acknowledging you, validating your emmotions and trying to reach back at you so think about that for a while.

So, what do I want to say to you? Well, I guess the simple truth is that feeling suicidal is a valid emmotion sometimes. I know that's likely to upset a few people, but I've always just looked upon it as another emmotion - an extreme one, at one end of the scale, but just another emmotion. Sometimes, we're content, sometimes sad, sometimes suicidal. The important thing is to acknowledge the feeling first of all. The next thing to do is to have the presience to understand that it is after all just an emmotion, and emmotions change, they fluctuate and like tidal rivers they ebb and flow and are not constant. So, just because you're feeling this low now doesn't mean you're always going to feel this bad.

Have you considered that experiencing this emmotion could be your mind's way of telling you that there's some aspect of your life that requires change. Or, maybe that there's some aspect of your mind that needs change in order to be able to better deal with the things in life that you cannot change? It works both ways you see and your psychiatrist will have an arsenal of techniques from cognitive analytic therapy through cognitive behavioural therapy through to some of the best medication that money can buy to assist you.

So, where does that leave you right now? Well, put simply, it leaves you with a choice. However much it may feel otherwise right now, you're in control of your situation. You control the emmotional responses you experience to the environment that surrounds you and you have choice over which emmotion to experience, and what actions to take. You always did have incidentally, just in case that fact's eluding you right now.

Your NHS trust quite likely has a crisis team or a home visiting team or something similar. If you feel overwhelmed by the emmotion that you're experiencing, then simply pick up the phone, and dial NHS direct on 0845 46 47 and explain what you're feeling and ask for them to contact the mental health crisis team. Alternately, your GP may have an out of hours service whereby not necessarily a GP within your practice but another GP may be able to see you if you call. You have choices, and you're totally in control of everything you're doing.

The emmotion is valid, but it's temporary. Access the support that's there and make sure that you get the help you need at the time that you need it the most. It's okay to be needy, sometimes!

i think you need to make a emergency appointment with your GP tomorrow morning and don't take we have no emergency appointments left rubbish, tell them well its an emergency because I'm suicidal.

i have been where you are many times my friend even to the point of doing it and been brought back to life.life is unbearable enough without the stress of depression that makes things ten times worse. you may feel like everybody will be better off without me but believe me this is so not true, do u want to pass over the pain your feeling to everybody you leave i think not, that's why you are asking for help, but if you did do it you would only transfer all the pain onto everyone else.

even if this means going into hospital for a short while go things will get better once they can observe and see wot is the best treatment is gonna work for you then things will slowly come together I'm sure


AmericanWoman
Some people think suicide is a selfish and cowardly act. In a way it is I think. Look at the people in your life you leave behind that you would deeply hurt.
So be strong and move on. Find something meaningful in your life.
Caring for others in need is one way to realize your problems are a bit self indulgent . The best thing anyone can do in their life is helping people worse than themselves.

All you can do is to keep fighting it and don't give in life is precious and we should be grateful for it. I know some times it hurts so bad when some1 leaves you but just try to keep thinking about the positive things that you have in life and things that you have done or achieved that make you feel proud. I hope that you manage to work things out good luck to you x

I have been where you are. I got all the way to the outside of the bridge before i was interrupted so i have some idea of what you are going through.I heard something that helps me,

A questionaire was carried out on the people who had survived throwing themselves off of the goldengate bridge.All of them said that about 2 thirds of the way down, they suddenly realised that everything that had driven them to do it didn't matter anymore, all the pain and all the problems they had in the world could be fixed except for the fact that they had just thrown themselves off of the goldengate bridge.

It's true, whatever the pain you are going through will pass and whatever problems you have can be fixed. It may seem like the darkest time and you can't go on but you can, I promise. Pick up the phone and talk to someone you trust. If you don't know who, call the Samaritans.

I promise, nothing is worth your life.


Lady_Wolfwood
Ah, no! No!

Please don't think like that! If you were to leave the living world, someone will miss you. In fact, it'll be more than one person. By being like this, you may be hurting that person and not know it. Talk it out with someone close to you or if not, write it out. Take out paper and write how you feel or just do whatever you want...draw, cry on it. Take out your frustration with music. Sing and scream along with it. Try going out for a walk to clear your mind, forget everything, imagine yourself walking away from what it is that is troubling you. I know it may be hard but the issues that are bothering you will go away and they will soon be insignificant specs that will be swept away to the far horizon. Just breath in and out and focus your pain and frustration away. Try it, it won't hurt to do it and it will have you focused on something else.

Good luck and take care, suicide is never the answer.

Sometimes nothing anyone says makes it feel any better... but the only one who can change anything in this world for you, is YOU...
Emotions can sometimes feel like actual physical pain inside... just know that there are people who understand how you feel and that you're not alone... The only thing you can do, is keep talking and sharing how you feel, hiding it only makes it worse.
