  • 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.

What would be something that would make your life worth living? What is your desire? (Don't say death, that's cheating)
It's hard for me to say. I suppose I would like to be remembered in a good light on a global scale, whether it's by making an album or an artwork or something or other. If I won't be remembered I don't see the point of my existence, and let me tell you, things aren't looking too bright.

I really want to be a clinical psychologist. I think living my life in a way where it has meaning bigger than myself would give me more reason to stay. I also have an adorable cat, and a lot of what is stopping me from acting on those urges is the idea that she wouldn't have anyone else
To be honest, a substantial amount of money would fix it.
Materialistic. I know.
I don't think that'a materialistic. In a world that functions out of the use of money, it has become necessary to have it. Don't be too hard on yourself!

I wish...

...I could be without Depression, BPD and Add
...I could feeling more joy and have more energy
...the contact with people could be less difficult
...I could love me
...I could be in a healthy relationship

If these dreams cant came true, I wish I had a lot of money, so that I can buy lots of help for me. This would not heal, but it would calm down the daily pain and I could do only things, that are good for me.

A healthy relationship could help me also. But actually I feel much less love for myself, and this is the reason I cant find a boyfriend.

I wish I was loved. A couple of months ago I had everything I wanted. A job I loved. I was living with someone I thought could be the man of my life and I had my family, the thing I always wanted most in life because I never had a family as a child. I was happy like never before and felt an inner peace like never before. And then it all ended. I wish I was loved.

With enough money, I would have the power to change things for myself and the people I care about. I just want to finish my writing. I want to not fear that other people will try to hurt me. Honestly, everything is so dead to me that I doubt anything would fix my situation, but it might make it easier for a little while.

Enough money to life the rest of my life off of would keep me alive, though I’d still struggle. But it would take away the guilt of being a financial burden and would make things more comfortable.

The best answer I think would be to find something that I can be passionate about that could also give income in some way. The issue is that nothing like that exists. I get bored or frustrated after a short while, and no longer have motivation or passion for whatever I was doing.

I don't dream good dreams, and I stopped wishing a long time ago. That said, this is a small sample of thoughts I have had.

I want:

the ability to find out what is wrong with me without being stigmatized and further ostracized.

the ability to love myself (being that I live with self-hatred).

the ability to ask for help (being that I do not know how).

the ability to converse with people and not want to run for the door every time

the ability to form bonds with others (as I don't know how to do this).

Someone who truly loves, wants, and needs me for the rest of the years I have left would be nice, and it would finally be good not to be seen as something obsolete and disposable (as I am always discarded).

Barring the aforementioned, I'll continue to adjust to my isolated, unloved, and unwanted life, hoping that the last thing I do is the best thing I can do.

I've fought exhaustion/ chronic fatigue for so many years now that I'm just utterly worn out. Every now and then I get a week where im able to walk 5-6km a day, and cook properly and I just change so much as a person, only for it to leave just as it arrived and leave me in the same place. Just the ability to have that consistenly would do so much for my life.

Not being in chronic pain would be a major plus, and being able to work again (in a good job like I used to have, not just any job). And I second the money thing. It would take me a long time to get bored of finding out how money doesn't bring happiness, I promise.

1. Be able to feel my dick when jacking off.
2. Being attractive to one or more wimmin (no actual relationship needed).

That should about cover it, I'm not fancy. Extra things would be having some respectable full-time job and not living in mom's basement, but it's not very necessary.

Unrealistic but, a Time Machine. There are many bugs that I would love to fix back then and a discussion with me as a child. Otherwise a substantial amount of money to ease everything. And a little bit less sensitivity and a little bit more focusing gift to deal with what is out there.

Winning millions in the lottery. In this society, extreme wealth is freedom unfortunately. Free from having to work, debt, can go anywhere you want, live anywhere you want. You could practically do whatever you want. Although, it can’t buy true love and belonging. I would still be an outcast. A happier outcast.

1) Freedom from chronic migraines, fatigue, depression/trauma.
2) A strong sense of connection and love to others.

I feel like despite how ugly life can be, I could maybe make a worthwhile existence again if I had those two things.

Lots of money, ability to handle stress and socialising, and good sleeping patterns. Then I'd actually be pretty damned happy
I'm so broke right now that even just 15$ would change my life
I'll give you $5 if you give me your PayPal address, then you just need 2 more people to do the same ❤️

A rich outcast can live rather a nice life!

50K, absolute minimum. About an extra year's income for me, but it would be more than enough.

I knew most of this thread would be about cash. 😛

For starters, and I'm still working on it, I'd love to give less of a shit about anything in general. "Cancel culture" manifested my worst fears of childhood and I don't want to keep on living like walking on eggshells every time I talk to anybody.

Before that, all I ever wanted was to be normal, or rather, dumber. Way dumber, dumb as most people. Not having a single drop of authenticity and skepticism. Didn't know how else was I supposed to get to the point/actively go back on wisdom, so I started bashing my head hard against walls and lampposts, if not punching my head til I got sleepy.


One person- one single person- who stays. Stays stays stays no matter what. If I knew a single person would always be there, I would be there too.
Not sure if you'd like to know, but I've never given up on anybody, even after I said it to their faces. There are people like this, even if they're so rare.

...Wouldn't recommend on waiting for one though. But looking wouldn't hurt, either!
