    Roller coaster of emotions

    I am absolutely at my least stable point I have ever been in my life. These past 7 months have been the most hellish days my life has had to offer, even in comparison to when everything started going downhill 4 years ago. At the beginning of this year I was at such a low point that I...

    [Venting] Depression Session

    I’m just going to jump right into it. I left a management position last year to take care of my mental health. I almost didn’t make it this far and I’m not sure how I feel about that.

    [Venting] Relationships

    Anyone else have ridiculous luck with relationships? I feel kinda dumb making this thread because I’m one of the young users here so I obviously haven’t dealt with as much as the rest of you have, but I still feel like I’ve had pretty awful luck especially considering how young I am. So, I’ve...

    Why Does The Public Get Outraged Over Nothing And Ignore Real Issues?

    So, a cafe called Greggs here in the UK started producing vegan sausage rolls, and for some reason plenty of people find this horrifying and are stupidly angry over it. And I just... what? It’s a vegan sausage roll, it’s not replacing the normal sausage...

    Self-fulfilling prophecy...

    Does anyone else find themselves helplessly doing increasingly shitty things to justify your desire to ctb to yourself? Sorry this is such a short post and I still haven't gotten back to anyone on my last post but yeah this is just a burning question on my mind atm

    [Venting] “Cry for help”

    I absolutely hate when people say suicide attempts are ‘cries for help’ or ‘attention seeking’. My parents told the mental health worker who assessed me a few weeks ago that the hospital staff treating me after one of my attempts said it was only a cry for help. I don’t get what people are...

    [Venting] Why do i bother

    Since deciding I was going to ctb I’ve been putting a lot of thought into how it’s going to impact all my loved ones but honestly I don’t know why I bother, I just found out all my friends have made plans without me across all of Christmas or they’ve just uninvited me. I feel like I try really...

    [Venting] Heard some bad news

    I had a pretty deep conversation with my dad this morning. I had an argument with my mum and she stormed out and when I was venting to my dad about things she does, like making me feel guilty for feeling depressed and moving/losing my belongings and blaming me for it, he ended up telling me a...

    Suicide in due time

    I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do. I don’t even have a method or a time figured out yet. All I know is that I don’t want to be around anymore. I’ve felt this way for several years, and nobody knows that it’s not a joke. I’ve come close to jumping out into traffic on multiple occasions, but...

    [Venting] Hi

    Hi.I'm here from Reddit. The early SS days. I'm lonely. Overwhelmed. Annoyed. Anxious. Most of all I'm frustrated with my lack of determination to end my life. I won't live and I can't die. They say I should call someone if I feel like this. Call and say what? Tell someone how I feel...
