It effects many and baffles the minds of many more.



I have lost a handful of friends to suicide. Four of them were close girl friends who hung themselves during HS. Two of them were men after HS who shot themselves in the head.
Yet another was one I still can't bring myself to talk about.



I am a suicide survivor. I allegedly attempted to kill myself just eleven months ago. I drank a case of beer, took a bottle of pills and then called 911 on myself, claiming I didn't want to die but knew I was on my way out. I woke up in the ICU days later having no idea what happened. I still, to this day, don't even fully know my own story.
I do, however, know what lead up to it. Rape, PTSD, depression, PPD and many deaths of those close to myself...



This is a thread to discuss suicide and depression. I want a sticky, but even if I don't get that, I want you all to talk.
I will post my entire story if asked to do so. I want everybody to realize that there are many things in the mind and body leading up to suicide and self harm, and often it's not something that you are fully aware of doing until it's too late.



I'm here for you. <333

I'm so happy you survived.

My father shot himself when I had just turned 16, and a good friend of mine - her husband just recently shot himself in public here where we live. It's heartbreaking.

I've never been suicidal, but I've lost loved ones to it. My grandma on my dad's side, and also my dad's brother both killed themselves. It's heartbreaking.
