• 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.

These years have had their good moments but i just feel more dead and empty as I age.

I’m wondering if I should give it another 5 yrs. The thought seems terrible

I think you need to take some time and do some deep reflection and introspection.

I got out of my abusive situation almost 4 years ago. In that time. I bought and owned my first car. Earned a college degree. Ran a marathon. Trained someone to run a marathon. Bought and sold a house. Got married. Managed a private shuttle/limousine service. Opened for a band. Went to an all day music festival. Shaved my head. Grew a mohawk. Wrote a compilation of poetry that I almost published. Lead survivor groups for people who survived intra-familial sexual abuse. Probably assisted in keeping a great many of illegal aliens from being deported given my legal work. I learned a trade. Perfected my culinary arts. Got into shape. Experimented with my sexuality in a safe way. Made a bunch of life long friends. Acknowledged my alcoholism and achieved 15 months sobriety. Acknowledged my opiate and heroin addiction and stopped using. Lost a friend to addiction.

I think that you need to take some time and write down a list of reasonable things you want to accomplish and do in the next five years and set your mind to it. I also think you need to make a list of reasonable things to have accomplished within the past 5 years.

. I think you should stick around but then I don’t know the full situation.

I don't know your situation but for me personally thinking 'maybe I should give it 5 more years' instantly means I am not ready to die yet.

I'll commit once I have lost all hope. I would say I am pretty damn close but simply not there yet.
