• Hey Visitor,

    In light of recent events, all community members in the US should reach out to their representative in regards to the Stop Online Suicide Assistance Forums Act that has been introduced in congress. This bill, if passed, could criminalize this community and hold it liable for simply hosting information.

    You should be able to locate and contact your represenative by going to this website. You can also contact Lori Trahan, the one spearheading this bill by calling her office at (202) 225-3411 or by leaving a message on the contact form on her site.

    One of the best ways to combat this is to make your voice heard. We're not political activists, but we made this notice to let you know that you do have a voice and that you do have representives that represent you in congress.

I've been severely chronically ill for over 3 years. I can, just barely, keep myself alive on a day-to-day basis but my quality-of-life is non-existent. I've been abused my medical professionals, my family (who I'm forced to live with), denied access to any form of housing or disability. I almost feel like if I kill myself now, I'll be written off as depressed or like I just couldn't take it anymore (because, purportedly, there's no proof I'm 'sick'), and that my family will control the subsequent narrative. I don't even have the willpower to go through with it lately. I feel like if the illness kills me instead, it might be more jarring and people will have to step back and reconsider how they treated me during such a horrific time in my life.

Been feeling really lonely .. even in the context of a suicide community, the physical component makes me feel kinda isolated. If anyone else chronically ill ever wants to talk, feel free to message me.

What is your illness? It is okay if you don't want to answer and sorry if I am asking too much.

I'd rather not discuss that publicly, sorry.

I got chronic pancreatitis when I was 28 which is when my life was effectively over. It has been 15 years now that I have had this horrible disease. I also have no quality of life and can relate to that. I got it from severe alcoholism, so it was my fault.
