Would this solve your problems…?

by cyanidesofmarch

Suppose there was a service that would make it look like you died in a plane crash or something… and then they secretly take you far away, give you a new name, cosmetic surgery so you would look completely different, give you a modest job so you could build a new life, do you suppose that would solve your problems or at least give you the will to try living again?

I guess if that were to happen I might try to forget about how suicidal I am

Probably not, for me.

No, it wouldn’t solve my problems. It’d make things easier for a while, but make them go away? Not a chance. Eventually I’d get bored of that life too.

I do believe it would.

No. It might temporarily distract me for a while, but inside I’d still be me. That won’t change.

“no matter where you go, there you are.”

“a rose by any other name, would still be a rose”

Changing a mask doesn’t change what it hides, nor does changing who sees it.

I wouldn’t need to fake my death and have a new identity, but i might need some firearms and restraining orders. 😛

As for being given a “modest job,” i don’t even know what that means. But it better not suck, and it better pay very well, because i don’t have all that many more years with which to build an entirely new life. Plus, i’m quite averse to spending most of my time busting my ass to make someone else rich (especially with my physical problems and long-overdue needs). That’s no kind of life.

Give me a house in the rockies with a nice view, a nice grow room, solar panels, the best PC i can build (let’s make it a whole room, while we’re at it), a music-studio with all the gear needed to make professional-quality solo albums, a workshop (3D printer!), a reliable vehicle, and enough money to never have to worry about paying bills or buying food. I’d also like a live-in personal trainer slash acupressure specialist slash masseuse…

So, yeah, i need several million dollars very soon, or i’ll cross the event horizon.

Haha cn, although what you described wouldn’t solve my problems, it might keep me distracted long enough that I’ll die of old age before remembering I need to kill myself 😉

Yeah the responses here basically speak for me too. The novelty would definitely keep me going for a while, maybe even give me some happy times, but eventually I would end up back here again. It would definitely be interesting to make another go at life, but unless my memories were obliterated, it wouldn’t really be a new life.

It’s an interesting idea though. I mean, the government does this sort of thing as part of their witness relocation program. I was just wondering if a “suicidal person relocation program” would work.

I don’t know most likely it won’t…..Now if you said that they used the little memory device from “men in black” then we might have something. Otherwise I’m still just an old beat up car with a new paint job.

I’ve spent many a night staring at the little LED flashy thing on my keychain but alas… memories still present & accounted for

depressednihilist95 9/2/2013 - 8:16 pm

It would not solve my problems because they are more mental than physical. Perhaps if I could relate to the others, however, I might feel better.

PainNlife 9/2/2013 - 8:16 pm

Well I wouldn’t want all my memories erased just the last 5 or 6 years…. I wouldn’t mind relearning everything just delete those years.

May i post a song? I know it can get annoying, so i’ll ask permission. It’s kind of punky, but has meaning, and it is very catchy, and pertinent.

ifoundmeandyou 9/2/2013 - 8:25 pm

I want it to remind you that no day, not piece of time, no memory has been wasted in your life.

ifoundmeandyou 9/2/2013 - 8:29 pm

message delete, message delete.
