• 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 was at a funeral yesterday of a guy who CTB
This was one of the many things i heard people say :(
The things pro-lifers will say... a hotline worker once told me:

"Do you think suicide is an option? In fact, suicide is not an option, but I wanted to hear your thoughts about this."

Nonsense. I wrote about him in my note.

This is simple. You either fit into category 1 or category 2.

1. If suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, then suicide is not the answer to your problems.

2. If suicide is a permanent solution to a permanent problem, then suicide is the answer to your problems.

Let's look at my case. I was born with fetal alcohol syndrome. It is a permanent problem that is not reversible. I also have chronic pancreatitis that causes severe constant pain. Chronic pancreatitis is a permanent problem that is not treatable. Anyone who would put me into category 1 would be an idiot. Unfortunately, every psychologist I have ever had has put me in category 1. I guess I am smarter than they are lol.

Honestly, it doesn’t bother me anymore when people say this because it’s so easy to discount them as unaware. That statement is so wrong that I don’t even find it challenging. What they are actually saying (imho) is ‘suicide is not the answer to my problems.’ And if they say that, I think that’s great for them, and then I stop listening.

Doctors don't know shit. Or just don't care. Or just fake and do their protocol and wash their hands. They care for money, this for sure.

I agree with you.
Using shattered dreams category (something) sorry i can't think of the word.
This guy most definitely fitted into category 2
The people who were saying these things were well aware of this guys problems.
I guess that's what made me so mad.

It is a really frustrating thing to hear. I don't talk about suicide outside of this site, so I seldom hear this kind of nonsense, thankfully.

That said, of course it is not an answer. Problems aren't questions, so why would suicide be an answer? Personally, I am not looking for answers. I am looking for a solution, and yes, killing myself is a solution. It solves everything. If I don't exist, my problems also cease to exist. The fact people struggle to understand this is just baffling, but then again it is not like they want to understand.

i say that first part all the time. mine is a permanent problem so when i say that to people who think they are smart asses and know everything, its great to shut them up and make them look stupid.

People are so ignorant on this subject it really p***es me off.
