You are on ignore, but I view ignored messages sometimes just to be sure I haven't missed something I wanted to respond to.
Same is with me, I have struggled with suicidal ideation for many years, and if I do it in the future, I will make sure to instrumentalize it to send a message to some people. I have given myself another year to seriously turn my life around. Meaning, going to therapy once a week, changing my job, hopefully settling down and maybe even having a kid. I think I can succeed if I put my mind to it.
Anyway, we are derailing this thread, and I am not sure whether these posts should be here.
I sincerely do hope you succeed in your recovery and are able to triumph in your goals One year is a very good time frame to build up positive momentum and healthy coping mechanisms to carry you through the hard times. You do strike me as an intelligent person, so I'm certain that you can triumph and attain even better outcomes than you'd anticipated with enough endurance and determination.
I'm not sure if suicidal ideation ever fully vanishes once we've relied on it to cope for so long, but I do believe that we can build more functional strategies to call upon when the suicidal thoughts hit. Anyway, I agree that this thread has been seriously derailed and that my initial post started it LOL. Best of luck with your goals
