  • When did you last feel proud or happy about your own self? What were you doing back then? What did you accomplish?For me it was today. I finally took a full meaningful shower. After weeks of steeping into the shower , pouring some water on myself then just not feeling like it and stepping out , I FINALLY DID IT. Might seem silly , but it means a lot to me.

    Relapse....

    I realized I haven't been on in a few days. Not that anyone knew. Anyway, I went to a rehab facility for 5 weeks and just got out a few weeks ago. I've been doing great and it was so worth it! However, the last few days I've been having suicidal thoughts again. I want to break this cycle but I can't help feeling worthless and that everyone would be better without me. When I went to the facility,...

    Can't handle it anymore!

    Can someone please tell me how to end my life in a peaceful manner. It sounds like I'm joking but I'm dead serious. Ive come to terms with the fact that I'm emotionally unstable and it's been this way since I was 15, I'm 42 now. I've had enough. No lectures please just help me die in a peaceful manner since there's no emotional peace in my life

    Hi, I'd like to respectfully request that everyone who does a 'I want to kill myself how shall i do it' type thread be given a 1 month ban to think about what they've done. this isn't a pro-ana type website where all the deranged people come to talk about ways to self-harm and get away with it. This site isn't here for creeps to get their kicks.
