I know the feeling all too well. Often one doesn't know what help to ask for, from whom and how. Too often, those who actually do have the responsibility to act just don't care a stuff and, in my case, get kicked in the face time and time again until your life is destroyed. You just feel as though you have little or no choice, become afraid of seeking the 'proper' assistance and just want to cease being a burden on others.He didn't call me but he sent me a PM and now, I believe he was asking for help but not asking at the same time.
It still haunts me a little bit that I didn't delve too deeply and ask he was doing.
I still have the odd wobble now and then. I live in pain every day, for which I take some very heavy duty painkillers and I've been told before that some are dosages they give to cancer patients on end-of-life care.
Despite me feeling sometimes that I'd be better off having a permanent sleep, my mind takes me back to the events of the past and I feel a coward as I don't want to go through them again.
I suppose you could argue that they are wishing someone an accelerated and speedy life but without the subtlety. "Hurry up and get living" seems a much more positive message.Of course. All normal, mentally healthy people would agree with you.
I gave you an excellent for telling us this. Not for any other reason.My 16 year old son (Nat) killed himself last year, we don't know why beyond him having a few issues at school but nothing that couldn't have been fixed.
That night came to our bedroom (and to his older brother's) to say goodnight which was completely unusual but we didn't think anything of it at the time. Obviously he had made his mind up, had decided to put his plan into action (he had acquired his younger brother's morphine) and was saying goodbye. It has hit his older brother hard as he has spent a lot of time second guessing himself - like most teenage siblings they had a fair amount of friction in their relationship - but we have tried to be clear that Nat had made the decision and, although I haven't said this out loud, and obviously been planning it for a while. As such I don't think there's anything any of us could have done although the questions will always be there.
To be completely honest (and I'd probably never say this in person) 'm just glad that he was able to do it at home and in way that was as clean and pain free as possible. At least this way there was no period where he was 'missing' and I was able to be the one to find him rather than a stranger.
I did just that and wasn’t shocked at what I saw, just think it’s extremely sad if certain posters have to resort to saying things like * kill yourself or * hurry and die to random people on an Internet forum.If you type "Kill Yourself" into the search bar and certain individuals names in the members bar, you can see how many times they said it.

I said upthread about my mate who did it.
I saw him the day before & he was smilier than I’d seen him in months. Next day…
I was having counselling at the time & she basically said some people get ending it all into their heads & no amount of talking will change that.
Even if you do ‘talk them out of it’ you’re probably only delaying the inevitable.
Not every case is like that, of course.
People shouldn’t beat themselves up because they didn’t speak to Kris.
It’s pointless & only serves to get yourself into deep place.

Thank you for posting.

Very distasteful and embarrassing.
