Picture of How to Kill Yourself
So you want to kill yourself? Is that why you're here? OK, well, I'm sorry you feel that way, I know it can all feel horribly, tremendously wrong. I've been there. I've stared at sharp objects behind fences and wondered what would happen if I were to jump on them and end it all. For about an hour or so at a time. Fun stuff!

Was I the only one who felt this way? The only one who would have such feelings? What can I say, I was a teenager and I thought I was unique. What I was was stuck in a depression that was eating me alive even as I found it to be so comfy in its absoluteness. Fortunately it was a phase that I was able to put behind myself with a conscious effort.

My friend Paul wasn't so lucky. He fought his depression several times over for a couple decades. After a long battle he chose to fight alone, he took his own life. He wasn't the easiest guy to know, but at his best he could make me laugh and think about all sorts of new ideas for hours on end. I still miss Paul even though it's been over 10 years since we last hung out. This Instructable is for him.

Important Note: If you or a friend are considering suicide please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is free and confidential and they know a LOT more about this stuff than I do.

The highs are never anywhere near as high as the lows are low. Neither are they as long. We are literally in hell.

There is nothing more universal than death.

To you seeking
I speak for I.
I have all I am only.
I alone know all my life.
I alone know all that I was.
I alone think these thoughts.
I alone breath this life.
I alone see from this mind.
I alone feel the pain in me.
I alone scream my anguish.
I tell you all this now, I tell you all because it shows me I am not alone.
Are you a

For You are not I as I am not You. I have been as you and Today will choose to stay. I am far more lost than found. Older than young, faded more than glowing. Stronger in misunderstanding than communicating. Far more experienced in lost than guidance.
Today will choose to stay. Why holds no matter, suffice is enough. Nothing weighs more than my life on earth. Nothing jusitifies ceasing such as I. Nor a pain or sadness of mine help another.
Today I choose to stay.
By my choice at 60 times each minute. I will to stay
By my choice at 60 times each hour I will to stay. If my life is to be spent as such, so it shall. My times in this reality will not come so far for so long simply to end prematurely. The simple pleasures are what go unseen..I seek them as they do I. We pass thru one another often. When I listen I feel. When I smell I taste so be it the pleasures in this one life are beautiful,plentiful, numerous.
Wow, who are you? I've read that, all that. It's like you've read my mind. It's divine and beautiful.
Not a question asked of me, never heard it of me. I am as I, none suicidial. Lost yes, afraid absolutly. Married mostly happily but struggles abound, 3 great cats. ADHD, deppression,ocd ect ect
lmao ! 55 yr old white guy raised in Md. retired Navy..
kinda Guy
The bell rang and we escaped.
I used to be the only habitant,
I now look around and they're all back again.
Roaming the streets with bicycles and inappropriate clothing.
It's either frost bite, or intoxication.
And I'm not part taking.
I do tend to blend in with the bitter and grey outback of this Lollapalooza.
It's all coming down.
Hissing at me.
Lurking, then jumping up against me.
Landing on it's paws, ready to jump again.
I'm just getting hurt and becoming tired.
I'm tired.
I've lost my each and every urge to purge. All watered down by endurance and minimal coming of age.

Sixteen, anxiety disorder, post-borderline, and severe depression. Windstill school enviroment, just a bad past and present. I'd like to realise I'm not overreacting.

You have my respect and praise sir, and I hope you'll find tranquility.
For I initially don't have the right to give up while I've just started.
Hope it didn't mislead you, I just had to go with it. Read the page for many months see to much pain not answerd fully. Felt quilty for putting it....there are great struggles than mine.

like i get the message and all

but why is there no info on killing oneself

Please dont feel that way. I have gone through the same exact thing as have you all......Dont ever think to kill your self...thats not your place.....

It. is Gods. If you want to talk more on this...answer this question for me...Why do you want to die? Give me some reasons.

I'm an atheist and have more morals and values than any believer I have met. Job was a bet between god and the devil. Don't give up, right.

Hey man, my best friend just killed himself the day before thanksgiving, he was 49 years old. He was a Marine and in operation desert storm loading missiles and bombs in F18s and F15s. He worked incredibly hard, didnt miss a day of work in over 15 years, has 4 amazing kids, made great money as a welder for the gas company, and recently got promoted to crew leader making more than 45-50 an hour depending(with overtime even more). Several months before this he got divorced. He could not get over it. and then even with all the money he made, after child support and alimony and bills, he was broke. He let his mind suffer over it. He was depressed not being able to see his kids every day, amongst other things. If only he realized how many people were important to him, how many people cared about him.. More than 150 people showed up to his celebration of life/memorial.
Looking into the past and suffering over it is useless. You cannot change the past. The same goes for the future. You can predict all you want, but you truly dont know whats going to happen. Dont suffer over these things. Once you can accept it, the past is there, its done with, and move on, your life will change all the better. The only thing you can actually change or do anything about is the present. This very second.
My friend had many similarities to you, I lived with him for 8 months. I would love to talk to you, if your interested. Contact me at I can give you my phone number through there as well.

I'm sorry to hear that.

Everything in life is difficult. there is NO easy answer please shoot me an email i have been in a similar situation and am not hear to change your mind. No pressure lets just talk

Are you for real...? Because I tried to send you an email, and it kept telling me that it couldn't be delivered...

You want to die because you are a man and a father. You have had your sperm harvested and now they want your money. It is the same for me and al of the men in the western world. You will get no help because you are a man and a father. Check out.

Are you still here?...if not dead i want to say i can understand every word you wrote..too much pressure all the time never knowing if you will get to retire anywhere other than on the street or under a bridge.

same here, struggling, it will be ok. I have a new born and not sure if I can support him much longer. not sure but I m trying. lets talk sometime. maybe we can figure out something or just talk. im losing it here myself. I always find a way to live a little longer.

And we talk.

And I have many problems at home. I lost the one person in the world who truly understood me. And I wanna know the quickest and most painful way to kill myself. I don't have a gun tho

Hi I'm 13 and most of my year and the year above hate me. I feel isolated and alone, I don't know why they dislike me so much. What did I ever do to them? It's hard at home too my parents are always falling out and getting back together and falling out again so at the moment I don't want my mom to worry as she's got enough on her mind even though I don't find her approachable anyway:& the only person I feel that I can approach is my head of year and nan iv told my head of year everything and she said iv changed a lot in a good way people just can't see it yet as it takes time to build up. Iv had thoughts about suicide as I'm that in-happy with my self atm. I know I'm very young but iv had enough of the hate and bitching about me I can't even turn to ny supposingly 'best friend' what shall I do?
