When I said I think about suicide she was pretty baffled, but whatever, I wouldn’t think I was suicidal myself if I didn’t know better. So we talked about it and she told me several options, visiting a psychiatrist, a psychologist, or staying at a clinic for several weeks. I am not sure yet which one I am going to choose, but I have plenty of time till the next meeting.
One thing that bothered me though was this: I didn’t know how to tell her about my suicidal thoughts so I just said I was member of an online-forum … a suicide forum. She wasn’t amused at all, and she found pretty harsh words for what she thinks suicide forums are about. So I wanted to ask you what you think about it: Does this forum actually help people cure their depressions? Or does it only draw you deeper into your suicidal thoughts? I am thinking about people who look for suicide partners – they definitely don’t profit from this forum in a way that helps them with depressions.
