I need to speak with someone who has once contemplated suicide...

Okay, I'm not as sick as the question sounds. I've been working on a book for a long time and I keep writing the same first three to five chapters over and over and over. The main character is about to kill himself and I don't think I'm REALLY feeling the pain and the desperation that someone in that situation would be feeling because I've never been there myself. I need to get into "his" head to make this authentic, so I thought perhaps if anyone is comfortable letting me into their heads... it could prove beneficial. No names will mentioned of course, and if it's too personal just don't respond!

  • I've been suicidal, even attempted suicide and been hospitalized for it, but can I contact you a different way than a question post?

  • When I was 16.. my BF cheated, said he loved me, talked me into oral, droped me off at my house, then called me to tell me he actually LOVED the other girl. So to me that was just the end I trusted him and thought I loved him then he did that to me. I don't actually know the reasoning behind it I think I just felt used and alone..... maybe? Anyways I took my mom's hair cutting scissors and started slicing away at my arms and took like 10 benadryl and 15 motrin. I ended up in psych for a week.

  • Some suicidal people have just one way in their mind that they see themselves dying. For me I always picture different things. It's like my mind likes to think of all the ways. It's painful because some days I really just want it to end and so I try to force out images of the people that I love from my mind, which I never can, and so, I'm still here.

  • I think what it can best be described is a desperate attempt to stop the empty, lonely, desolation felt by one. IDK how much maturity has to do with it since it happens at any age.
