• 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.

To avoid where you are now ?
For me i would liked to have had different parents who would not have over protected me
and who would have allowed me to have friends and make my own mistakes and learn from them
and not made me to take meds that messed up my head.

I would focus more on my education and not have skipped every class. I would get a good skill at trade school to become a mechanic and escape the poverty I live in now. Second I gambled away my life savings on my addiction which would have been enough for me to retire on I would have not done that.

Not sure physical illness over decades brought me to the hell of suicidal depression. I don't think I had a chance to be honest. I would break just the same with a second go around. If my physical health was fine, I wouldn't be on here.

I wouldn't let the military do my back surgery. It was supposed to make me feel better, but they messed it up and it's been a shitshow ever since. Medications managed the pain well up until now but thanks to the drug abusers, I'm fucked.

Going back further, I would have behaved in high school so I didn't blow the full ride at Georgia Tech that I had.

Why is it that the most important time in our lives when it comes to our future is also the time when hormones are raging and we're daft idiots?

Like you, I would have stopped myself from taking those benzos recommended by the school counsellor. Those pills fucked up my head big time.

Hmm, not much, to be honest. Somehow being able to kill myself at a far younger age certainly goes without saying. Other than that, well I don't know. I've managed to avoid a lot of life's bullshit being that I've been fortunate enough to live as a complete hermit/hikikomori for the last 11 years while also not really having any major past regrets/trauma to speak of. Only thing I can think of is for me to have been less of a prick to my mom when I was younger. Then again, she was quite the pill to swallow herself back then, so enh. Fuck it. The thought of starting this shit over again is a fucking nightmare, anyway.

Basically, I wouldn't change anything - -because it's human existence that has lots of faults, no matter what you do to be 'happy'.

This person gets it. Well said.

Asked my mum at the age of ten to give me up because she clearly didn’t love me and I think if I didn’t see the stuff I had seen growing up

Maybe the best part of my day wouldn’t be knowing suicide is around

I'd avoid doctors, apart from routine check-ups and vaccinations. If I hadn't trusted, elevated those fuckers, put them on the pedestal that we, as a society, do - I'd be in great health and at the prime of my life. Modern medicine is profit-driven and full of greed like every other industry. I'd be married, probably have kids by now. I would've quit my job by now, moved to another city. My life would be utterly unrecognizable if I only had my health.

Pretty much the same story for me.

It doesn't matter. Even if you start life again and make the best decisions (let's say you're also very lucky) and achieve your dreams, the world will still be the same harsh place you already knew. Why do you think famous and rich people commit suicide too?

I dont remember but was told social services were coming round all time, to check wether my parents were treating us right etc.... I guess the first thing would be to tell social services when I was 5, to take us all away. Then maybe I would of had loving and supportive family, and maybe my life woukd be different.
