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.

Throwing in my contribution for New Zealand: The Lowdown, Lifeline NZ, and Youthline are amazing. I worked with those guys for years and they are incredibly well-trained to help you if you are feeling depressed or suicidal. If you're in New Zealand and you're feeling depressed, please call 0800 lifeline. It's just a phone call. It's not going to hurt you at all.

Please note - I am not a counsellor. I will refer you to these people if you need someone to listen to you. I am not your resource, they are. They are safe.

Can some one tell me what to do right now?
Cause I feel like I can't go on

I'm sad to say no one can tell you what to so but yourself. I have a sad story also, and for ten years I have been saying I cant live like this anymore. goes on. Ask yourself: Do I have a family? So I have an friends? Do I have parents, a spouse, a brother or sister? ---- I have a wonderful wife who has been with me for 34 years. I have a house to live in, food to eat and I am covered by the worst medical care in North America. I'm a disabled veteran. ---- I understand how you feel and its a bad place to be. Today I want to finally end it. Tomorrow, with me gone, very little will change. There wont be a funeral,. I will be burned to dust, stuffed in a cannonball and buried in the backyard. My daughter will shrug her shoulders and say, "oh well...thats too bad. Hey mom, you can move out here now." My grandkids will look with blank eyes and ask, "Who?? My son will simply turn his back and shrug his shoulders without comment. My wife will be sad for a few days and then slowly realize how much better her life is now that she no longer has to care for me all the time. Perhaps she will be able to realize some of the dreams we had when we were young that have been destroyed because of my health. ---- My death would go unnoticed and unremarked by the rest of the world. ---- But...I am a coward. Folks say taking your own life is the cowards way out. Those folks dont know nothin'. By the time I reached rock bottom taking my life should have been easy. Today will be the fourth time and even though I know my death means nothing and would make my wife's life so much easier, I fear I wont be able to go through with it again. ---- Tomorrow will come and I will do what I'v been doing for the last ten years. I will watch a movie or two, play a game, and then sleep. One of my injuries resulted in a traumatic brain injury leaving me with chronic fatigue and narcolepsy. I have zero energy so I sleep about eighty percent of the time. ---- PP17, I am sorry I can not help you. Tomorrow will come and if you do the same thing you have done today nothing will change. If you can get out and go places, met new people and experiences new places, even if it is just the town library, go out and do that. >>The best to you. Dont give up yet. There's still an answer somewhere out there.

how are you this strong. I am 16 and had to grow up super fast. I want to give up

I'm only 16 I been trying to kill myself for ten long years. I feel so empty and In pain and darkness. I feel like there is a whole in my chest. I been cutting been overdosed myself put needles with water into my body. I'm am giving up.
I get beat and made from of from everyone even my family. They all tell me just to die

When people ask why would you kill yourself it's cause I can't stand living knowing I'll be 30 next year no job told I couldn't work feeling worthless people I thought liked me finding out they don't. As I said I should've killed myself back in 05 knowing 10 years where I'd be now.

I'm 11. Wanted to kill myself since fourth grade. My family tortures me. My friends...well I have none. Tried to kill myself several times....I should just try again I guess. ?
Hi I was thinking about killing myself and I have to remember that I have a son who loves me. But his father doesn't cares weather I am ok or not. I want to know how to talk to him about me trying to let my life go. He seems like he doesn't want to care. So what can I do.
Joy J. Try to live for yourself. Maybe make a graditude list. Theres nothing wrong with getting professional. It may be offered via your county or local community office. Resources and numbers are on the top of this page as well. KEEP IN TOUCH !

a man who never cared about his wife ,what makes u think that he will take care of your/his son . dont do it for the sake of ur son .

I have tried to kill myself many times before. I am only 13. Right now, I am starving myself and recently in the last two weeks, I have cut, and stabbed myself. I don't know what to do, really. I only do it because no one cares about me. I have no parents, or siblings. No friends. Maybe I should try again......

You are only 13 and have a life ahead.. a life you can chose to live as you wish. You will experience a lot of things and meet lots of people who care for you.. give it a chance! Life can be beautiful!
I hate life so much.

How many more people are going to try to take their own lives because of depression, before something other than throwing drugs at the problem is done? Far too many talented and wonderful people are losing their lives to this awful illness, and it seems to be getting worse. I suggest anyone suffering from depression reads this review on the Destroy Depression System. It is written by someone who recovered from depression and PTSD, and teaches 7 natural steps which help to banish depression from your life.

Hello everyone. I know depression is a terrible thing, and nobody deserves to go through it. If you know anyone who does have depression, or if you have depression yourself, then please take a minute to read this. It is about a system, made by a man who used to have depression himself, he made it to fight depression and spread awareness.

Sicne i was in school i was getting bullied and harrassment and call me an stupid idoit, and my boyfriend cheated me to chose another boyfriend so that why i came here.

ive been feeling extremely sad, and being thinking about what would the world be with me... i have a great family, an awesome boyfriend, but i feel so empty. i feel like all my life is wrong. when i think is about to start getting better it just gets worst. i cry for no reason. i have a whole inside me. i have no feelings i feel like just drowning, im too scared to ask for help. no one knows how i feel. i dont cry in front of people, i dont talk to my friends, i just try to hide it and its being harder and harder to do it

I'm doing it Tuesday.

Dear sir,

I was looking for a fun and stress reliving tactic for the "How to Kill yourself" genre. I clicked on your site due to the fact that I may or may not have gotten some useful information on the subject at hand. My friend recently introduced me to the topic and I'm curious to learn.

Sincerely: MaryTheUmbreon

I wanna die.

i'm not saying i'm going to commit suicide but i'm thinking about it, and its because of my parents. what do you do when you feel you want to kill yourself because of your parents?

Same thing here. Because of my parents i just dont have a life and feel numb. I dont know if thats the same for you but i know this sounds weird but im saying this so you know your not on your own.

Past month having people I thought I liked me you know & basically just not wanting anything to with me you know hell yeah I wish I would've went through it 10 years ago knowing that I'll be 30 next year no job cause I was told I can't work feeling worthless if I knew in 10 years where I'd be I would've went through with it.

I want to kill myself because I cry everysingle day from being bullied and being called names and I want it to end...... it gets a little to much
find me on fb
Your Name is what they can call you for a response.....Everything else is just things they say. Yes their painfully heavy try letting it go.
Their being mean isn't like being correct or cool or impressive.
Their coming from sick behavior, horrible actions.....Nothing of true value will last there. I doubt they've shown true strength or courage as you have. I doubt they know what they're talkibg about their taking random shots trying to get a reaction. Their strength is the fraud...The "Hollywood Scene " settup....Theres no strength supporting it. Resistance can often times push it over. Their repetions are due to trying to repeat the take that as one weak link in the chain of events.
Ur beautiful anf smart and wonderful. Dont listen to what they say, being bullied sucks but trust me killing urself wont help. Bullies will stop, those cuts will heal, and you are always going to be a wonderful, beautiful and brilliant person
