This is why I was reluctant to share my story in this thread. I did so only to clarify that I'm not currently suicidal and provided a brief history (perhaps, I shouldn't have). I NEVER intended to solicit answers or a solution to *MY LIFE SITUATION*. I've suffered long enough to know that I'm not going to get magical solutions from strangers on the internet. The fact that you feel the need to tell me I'm not going to get answers here is a bit condescending (as if I am naive enough to expect that from the forum), although I'm sure you didn't intend to come across that way. No biggie, I'm just expressing how your post came across to me.Enlightened2B wrote:You're asking for something here that simply cannot be given to you by people who don't know you well enough. We each have given our own perspectives on 'suicide' in general. However, NONE of our perspectives would be able to be applied to your situation.
Just from listening to what you are saying, you sound defeated. I know you've mentioned that you've tried therapists. But, I can assure you from my own experience, there are good ones and really shitty ones.
Please explore the potential that there IS another good quality therapist out there for you.
Nope, this is your problem. Look at the words I highlighted. You are not going to get answers from the same place where the problem exists.
No, the purpose of this thread was to discuss the general idea of suicide, not as it applies to me or any particular person, but the concept in general. It is a subject rarely discussed, and I have very passionate views about it in general. I wanted to know what others think of it. That's all.
This is NOT a cry for help or a "save me, I'm dying" thread !
Thanks for your thoughts, regardless.
