Have you ever thought about suicide?

Not just as a hormonal teenager, but just as a quiet end to everything?

  • No, there have been times when life has been pretty rough, and I've wished I could just disappear, but I never considered taking my life.

    I really can't imagine not having seen my boys grow up into the incredible young men they are....not seeing them get married and have children some day. Not being a grandmother.

    And there are so many things I still want to do with my life.

    Nope, I've sat on the floor in my kitchen sobbing until my face hurt before, but then I got up, finished my chores, supervised my kids and fought my way out of whatever was happening in my life.

    I hope you're okay. Hugs.

  • Of course, in many ways life seems scarier and harder than death. But, I have little ones who need me.

  • Yes I have. It's a horrible place when you can only see how your death would improve the lives of everyone you love.

    Hang in there. Things always get better eventually.

  • Yes I have, but living is much more important to me :)

    Plus, I believe you won't go to heaven if you take your own life. That's Gods decision.

    Are you okay?

  • Yes, OP. I have. I think you would be surprised by how many of us have. Are you okay? Please PM me if you want to talk.

  • Yes. I've never actually considered it or attempted or anything but I can't say I've never thought about it. I would not however leave my son alone in this world without a mother no matter how hard it gets.

  • There are times that I wish it could be over. During stressful and overwhelming times. I would never actively seek to end my own life.

  • Honest to God that's never been an option for me...from what ive seen it hurts more people than i want noone to think i went down as a weak person you know? Life is life,it sucks sometimes but we have to pick up ourselves and continue to live...especially being a mom,not to mention God have me this life and he will end it when he wishes....and i will live it to my fullest while i have it.

  • There was one time. Thought about it a few times. Decided only cowards take that end. I am not a coward.
