As I read through these discussions, it occurred to me that few people ever hope to change. Suicidal ideation occurrs when the pain we feel outweighs our coping mechanisms. Instead of taking our lives, we should take action. Learn new coping mechanisms. Get out the bad stuff through talking, not cutting. Use medications to stop some of the urges. Use relaxation techniques. The list goes on and on. We have a wealth of knowledge and a lot of people out there that can help us. I am not saying that they will work, or that it won't take time and effort. I just think we need to believe that there is something better out there for us. We are shut in, bleeding, crying, and in pain. To cope with this we shut ourselves in more, cry more, bleed more, thus causing more pain. I am tired of being counterproductive. I want to attempt to be normal. I know I am kinda going on. Who knows, this whole kick I am on is probably another mood swing. But I'm still gonna run with it. Take my hand and run with me.
