I never coped well with dying/death well myself...Thought I did at the moment,but saw others that handled it way better,wheres the money,what do I have to do now and what not..

As for my own death,I expect I will handle it way better as I will be the one dead.

Still hard to do the deed though...

Very hard to do the deed.Even when I think about not being here it's unfathomable to think about. Really wish it didn't have to come to this but I've messed my life up so much that I really see it as the only way out and I really don't have much time. :(

By knowing that what I'm going through is a fate worse than death, and given the choice of continuing to endure a fate worse than death, or death, it makes perfect sense to choose death. Easy!

Not very well. It's hard for me to accept because none of this had to happen. It was easily avoidable but what's done is done.

I use this to try to cope:



From the comment in second link:

From the book The Practicing Stoic by Ward Farnsworth

"Marcus Aurelius’s view of humanity gave him a reason not to fear death: the human race, seen accurately, is not the sort of company one should be too sorry to leave behind."

"Here are the words of the law on this subject: If chance delivers some great misfortune that you cannot remedy, a haven is always nearby. You can swim away from your body as you would from a leaking boat." - Montaigne

I have faith. Above everything else, this is helping me with this. I thank inmensly my mom, who is both a devout christian and also she is truly an angel, she has dedicated her entire life to charity, helping people, going from hospitals to prisons, poor neighborhoods and the most remote of places to go to be and help native and isolated communities. She has shown me that He exists, and this is a comforting thought. I feel he is with me, perhaps not to save me of the harships to come, but that when the time comes... he will receive me at his side on the heavens. It is soothing to know He is with me. I honestly at this point, do not fear death, but the suffering that may still lay ahead of me before that time comes.

Idk, I just think I’ll cease to exist, you know like go back to wherever I was before being born. I think that the concept of a soul is flawed and it’s only the body and mind that are at the epicenter of all this suffering we go thru. With the end of all brain activity, all this suffering will end too. Maybe I’ve told myself all this because I’m pretty fucking sure about CTB.

I'd say you can really help defeat it by trying reasonably hard to get better first. Check out the recovery thread here on SS. Then getting a peaceful method. Making amends with people you've been at odds with. Leaving people with good memories or at least meaningful memories of before you go. Reconciling religious spiritual beliefs. Justifying suicide by understanding it can help, thus keeping your conscious clean.

@Outcryofcrows, I share your inescapable situation.
I do not worry about death because once I am dead I won't have a conscious to feel bad about it.
But I dread the process of dying and being alone when I go.

Coping is what we do to motivate ourselves to keep living and keep trying. If you're ready to die, then death is the one thing you don't have to cope with, because it's the way out of living and trying.

To prepare myself for death, I pretended I was going to die in a few minutes, and asked myself what I would regret. And then I questioned why I would regret it. I couldn't come up with a solid answer for why I would regret anything. When I realized I actually have nothing to regret, the thought of impending death -- and especially the thought that I'd be completely alone in those last few moments and I'd therefore never have to face consequences for anything -- became comforting.
