    suicide blogs

    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.

    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

  • Home watching movies and I just made myself an amazingly comforting dinner of ramen (wait!) with organic corn off the cob and kimchii. The secret is to throw out the seasoning packets of doom and add fresh miso, powdered garlic, rice vinegar and a wee bit of butter. Tiny bit. It was so wonderful. So comforting. I saw a nutritionist a few months ago, worried about how little/how sporadic I was...

    Having a bad day...

    After having a good couple weeks I feel like I hit rock bottom today. I needed to get out of the house and I went to to the casino and lost absolutely everything in my account. I have no excuse because I knew what I was doing was wrong but I didn't care. I just kept withdrawing and blowing it faster and faster. I didn't think I was gonna hit a jackpot or anything either. One of the best...

    Isolating yourself

    Home. Just got back from closing my shop. I intentionally bypassed an invitation from my husband to go to a friend's (very casual) wedding tonight so I could stay home. Now my sons and my husband are there and I just started watching a show. Eating pie and ice cream. About to load my bong...I find smoking pot very relaxing. Going to the wedding sounds like the worst thing ever. I've just been in...

    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,...
