CO2

by emptinessinme

I’ve been thinking about sitting in the garage with my car on. Buying melatonin and falling asleep to never wake up again. I feel like it would be a peaceful way to die.

Thoughts of suicide have always consumed my mind. I realized life is not for me at a young age. Nothing makes me happy. Nothing in this world is good enough to make me want to stay. I can’t relate to other people. I don’t understand how people can be happy or motivated or excited. I only feel anger and depression.

I’m sorry you feel that way.

I’m not trying to encourage you, but this is the kind of haunting, matter-of-fact writing I come to SP for.

I know it doesn’t help, but you have my sympathy.

Hi.

1) It’s CO. Not CO2.
2) They quit making cars that pump out CO in the 1970’s I think.
3) Hang in there, if you can, if you end your life you’ll get to the other side only to see how you should have hung in there longer.

“1) It’s CO. Not CO2.”
Correct.
“2) They quit making cars that pump out CO in the 1970’s I think.”
Incorrect. All combustion engines produce carbon monoxide. While greenhouse gas emissions have been regulated in recent years, a car’s tailpipe still produces plenty enough to kill.

they have taken precautions to make it more difficult so you are both correct

“Before catalytic converters, a 1973 medical study found that a 90-minute ride on a Los Angeles freeway produced EKG irregularities in 40% of patients with preexisting cardiovascular disease. Expressway CO levels approached 25-100 ppm. The EPA emission standards have reduced the amount of carbon monoxide produced by over 95%. ”

Over 95% reduction in CO emissions since 1973. That’s a big reduction. I thought I read a story on here where someone tried to do themselves in the garage like that and they just woke up with a sore throat and a headache.
