Suicidal Survivors

For those who have survived suicide.


From someone who has loved…lost…heartbroken….and is slowly picking up the pieces…

In September my mum took her own life, she brought me up as a single teenage mum and made my life as amazing as she possibly could. She went back to school, achieved a business degree and got a great job helping small nurseries improve their business and the standard of child care. She was a beautiful, intelligent, creative, funny, loving and much loved woman…my heroine and inspiration. She also suffered varying degrees of depression throughout her life and tragically last summer had a nervous breakdown – sadly due to the stress of her job and bullying in it. She

I think I’m gonna kill myself… what a scandal if I died

  April 18th, 2009 by Kez

I’m 23, gay male and miserable a good deal of the time. I feel like I have no right to be so unhappy when I have so much going for me, but rather than feel guilty, I feel like, it’s not fare. Why would someone, God, Fate, Karma, whatever, give me so much to enjoy and so little capacity to enjoy it. I walked home alone tonight from a big drag show where everyone was having a good time. On the way out the door, I cheerily said goodbye to five friends, two of my therapists and the boy I’m in love with, who only …

Beginning of the end or End of the beginning?

  April 13th, 2009 by mla_731

My suicidal struggle story started when I was just a kid. My mom, a single mother of two kids, and my brother, a young man ripped from his childhood by a drug addiction that started before he was 15, both struggled with mental health issues. When I was a little girl, I used to lay in bed and pray that God would let me sleep forever and never have to wake up. Even at such a young age, I knew that my journey through life would not be an easy one.

Coming into my teenage years, I was overcome with demons left from years of physical …

getting closer to suicide

  March 30th, 2009 by homeoffice

I’ve read a couple of posts and I think its great that people have a chance to express themselves and get others to help. I’ve tried to fill myself 4 or 5 times now and I havent been able to do it. I know that most people have issues and that they find it difficult to talk to someone or maybe feel that there is no way out.

I never believed in suicide and I always thought that anyone that tired to kill themselves was selfish and that they didn’t think of the people around them that could help. At the very worst I thought you …

Loss of my Mom.

  March 30th, 2009 by Demoniaque

Just this year on Jan 28 09 my mom passed away.

At first I couldnt beleive it. I was with her in the hospital and she was fine.

I go sit with my grandma and then next thing I hear is CODE BLUE!!

I didnt know what that meant but they sent the nurses to my mom room.

Minutes passed and the Dr came out saying ” Im sorry but her heart just gave out. ”

At that very moment my entire world collapsed!

A month pass after her death and I remembered something.

She would always give me a hug before I went to school.

I burst out in tears and reached …

Such a burden and disappointment

  March 25th, 2009 by Dahass

I’ve been depressed for as long as I can remember. I don’t really know why. I just don’t like to be alive. Nothing has ever happened to me, and I think for most of my life, it hasn’t been a horrible life. I just don’t like living it anymore. It’s getting harder to deal with.

I’m 28, separated from my husband for a year now and have an unplanned pregnancy with someone who I wish would die. I’m not that lucky though. I miss being with husband, I love him more than anything and would do anything for him. We have 2 beautiful girls.  I wish …

I’m Not Quite Sure.

  March 22nd, 2009 by forrealzkaitlyn

 I think it all happened in seventh grade. I met this wonderful girl, her name was Patricia. I first met her in drama class, she had brought this razor to class and was cutting up her notebook. All I could think of was the razor I played with last night cutting into my wrists again and again. I slowly fell for her, she didn’t even help me up. I was so near to telling her how I had felt, but she told me about this guy, they were going out and she was inlove with him. . . She tore my heart out, squised it …

Why suicide is a lousy idea (most of the time)!

  March 14th, 2009 by drukdeur

Before I get flamed as one of those “goody two shoes”, this is not going to be a post about why suicide is morally wrong, or trying to convert you to any religion.  I am an agnostic, and I really don’t believe in forcing my morality on anyone.

I think suicide is justified in some cases: if I were to have a terminal illness, and I would be enduring a lot of pain until I die, I would consider an assisted suicide as an option.  However, when it comes to emotional pain, I think suicide is not a great option, and here’s why:

I thought furiously about how I was going to let my parents know, would an email be so bad. If I sent an email they would know straight away, but would they have the computer on, would they even check their emails. I know I didn’t, in-fact it was very rare I checked mine, I would normally have at least 100 emails to make my way through as I left it so long before looking. It does seem a little impersonal, but how else would I let them know. I put the thought to one side as my thoughts redirected themselves to …

My story-ish

  February 17th, 2009 by Stonecolddeadinside

I know that people always say, “Oh it’ll be okay” and “Oh I’m so sorry”. They say all these things that just don’t help. But when you need it the most, there’s always one person, who’ll actually say something that helps.

I’ve lost a lot of things, Family, friends, the love of my life, and even the will to live. It hurts when someone you love lies to you, or your family disowns you.

A few months ago, I got in trouble with the law for my brother’s Marijuana in my car. I made the illogical decision to let him smoke in my car before …

What would’ve happened?

I get home from school, the second I get there all I wanna do is dissapear.
I waited until my mom left for work, to have to house to myself. Once she was gone I lock all the doors leading outside so no one can get in. I go to the bathroom with my backpack, tissues, and cold medicine (the kind that makes you drowsey) I lock that door too. I go to the corner, and burst into tears. I cried for 2 and-a-half-hours. I then unwrap 6 of the pills, I take 3. I threw the other 3 away. Afraid that …

My Suicide

  February 8th, 2009 by Kieylee102

My story goes like this. My parent would fight every second of the day. I would lock myself in my room and try to block it out. But the pain kept getting worse and never stopped. So I would cut myself to make it go away. It helped for a little while but then it came back ten times stronger. So I tried to find away out and of course the way out I thought was to commit suicide. My house is a second story house and my sister’s room (which is now my room) has a window that has access to the …

My life has come to this?

  February 4th, 2009 by Terrified

A year ago, I was happy. Good grades, tons of friends, just started middle school. It was good.

Now, at 12, almost 13, I’m cutting myself, and having suicidal thoughts almost every day.

I don’t know how it got here, though.

My grandmother and brother died in the course of one month, but thats not it. Or at least I don’t think it is.

I guess it started as just a spur-of-the-moment thing. I started seventh grade with RSD, RA, Pain syndrome, and fucked-up nerves in my right arm. I’m in pain 24/7. And it’s not just small pain, …

the begining

  January 31st, 2009 by quietlyobjectified

the first time i tried to kill myself i was 6. it was right after i’d told my dad that a family friend was molesting me. he beat the crap out of me and told me it was my fault, that i asked for it. i tried to strangle myself by tying a shoelace around my throat so tight that i couldn’t breathe. i fainted and the cord snapped.

Love him more than life itself.

Hi all
I’m a 31 year old mother of 1 son whom has type 1 diabetes. My life is hard as it is with his illness. Constant appointments constant injections. Since he was 3 years old. I was in therapy for a long time I thought I was ok and discontinued for 3 years. I had a boyfriend at the time of my sons diagnoses but then he left me in 2004 left me with no explanation left the keys under the door with no goodbye. I was devastated. I didn’t understand why he had done this to me. I loved him with all I …
